Ratman197 (9014) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle poured a clear brown with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of carmel, milk chocolate and a hint of nuts. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, bakers cocoa and light nuttiness with a crisp dry lingering malty finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2011
Bottle thanks to AirForceHops: Pours a clear deep copper mahogany with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted nutty nose with a touch of British hops and hint of fruitiness. Starts with a good mild sweetness and toasted maltiness well-balanced with lightly piny bitterness before a crisp bittersweet finish. An enjoyable, true to style, and very drinkable brown ale.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Pours brown (duh!) with a tan head. Smells of sweet malt with some nutty biscuity hints. Tastes sweet with some nicely balanced nutty hints with a nice caramelly finish.

12-oz. Thanks, Bob! Pours a hazy dark brown with a loose tan head. Nice fresh malty molasses and graham cracker nose with a bit of fresh hop showing. Creamy medium body with wooly carb. Sweet bready mid-palate with toasty herbal finish. Quite nice.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2008
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malts, nuts, chocolate, and brown sugar. Poured brown in color with a small, creamy, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Fully of tiny particles. Lightly sweet flavor. Tastes of malts, chocolate, brown sugar, hops, light nuts, pine, resin, and toffee. Medium body. Smooth, lightly oily, lightly chalky texture. Sweet, chocolate, brown sugar and resin finish. Not too much nuttiness, but still tasty.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Bottle from beastiefan2k (thanks, Eugene!) - copper/brown pour, with small lace - quite a hoppy aroma, with some biscuity british maltiness going on, light nuttiness, some caramel, earthy character - fairly grassy, dry, herbal, with quite a high hop profile for the style - slight caramel sweetness and bready malt flavors - mineral/chalkiness on the back end - tastes more like and ESB than a brown ale - fairly tasty, but lacking ay memorable or distinguishing character.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2009
This beer came in my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a medium sized brown head. The aroma was bitter, roasty and had a sharp floral hop element. The flavor was bitter, roasty, smoky, and malty with a touch of wood underneath. The finish was long, roasty and smoky. Not really my style. Ok.

Wins points with me for the really intoxicating aroma and nice head (though perhaps a bit much for a brown), but disappointingly weak and thin. GOOD flavor, what there is of it; just not enough to make it a great or even near-great beer. Worth it if its your neighborhood beer, I guess (like Magic Hat products are for me).
