Pours a very dark brown with a minimal head. The aroma is great... tons of roasted nuts, prunes and dates. The flavor has lots of sweet brown malts and dark fruits peppered with nuts. A nice cheap version of a belgian brown. Good beer.

Wow... for a brown ale this really is dark, almost black. Immediate nose of licorice and malt. Slightly sweet malty flavor with the licorice note also present in the flavor. Fairly easy drinking, no really hoppy bitterness. I could probably drink more of these.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Bockhorsey. Pours a clear dark brown with minimal head, sans for a soap scum on top, but leaves some spotty lacing. Nose is roasted nuts and a touch of coffee. Taste is smoky, mild coffee and roasted walnuts with a semi-sweet toffee finish. Medium, fairly creamy mouth feel. I’m not a huge fan of brown ales but I’d drink this one again – I liked it better than Moose Drool. Probably because it’s not nearly as sweet. Decent brew. Thanks Bill!

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2008 (On tap at Opal Devine’s on June 6, 2008) Amber-brown color, not very transparent, but clear. Opal Devine’s pored into pint glass, can’t remember if there was a head. Oops! Darn Air France. Typical Independence smell. Taste is lightly sweet and watery malty, goes down easy. Nut flavor is noticeble, but not easily identifiable. A pretty good beer, but not all out for the flavor ride.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle: Light brown color, light head. Nose of light earthy hops and a caramelly maple note. The flavor is chewy with nutty cocoa note, mild chocolate and a sweet nuggat overtone. Decent brown ale, in the middle, decent body, robust tail. Respectable.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle, from Kegs & Barrels, McKinney, TX. Pours a nice translucent brown with beige head with minimal retention. Aroma of slight roast & chocolate. Flavor was pleasant, nice roasty chocolate with dark fruit notes. Palate was light-medium feel with medium-high carbonation. Not bad......
