Davros (1947) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2013
Pours coppery brown with a off-white head. Malty aroma with nutty and bready notes. Quite sweet-smelling. Moreish! Lovely malty flavours; bready, nutty melanoidin notes, somewhat sweet. Lovely nutty characters. Good moderately high carbonation. Could be a little higher.

Bottle. Clear mid-brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate and nuts. Getting towards watery and far too fizzy. Sweet with chocolate and caramel (where did the nuts go?) grassy bitterness at the end is a little much to allow it to be bland and soothing but not enough to be much of a feature.

suprchunk (2250) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Dark brown colored pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. A slight roasted grain aroma with a nice malty background. Sweet malty flavor with some notes of roast. Nice sweet finish.

Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 5, 2013
This is a nice nut brown ale that has a slight hop aroma and flavor. It is similar but not quite as good as the Rogue effort from the same region of the country. This beer is smooth and goes with everything.

Acquired from hayduke. Thanks Ron! It poured a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was nutty and malty. It had a medium palate and the taste was also malty and nutty, with a hint of chocolate. Decent.

This is a better than average brown. Dark brownish color with a decent head. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Some toffee and bread in the flavor.

Draft to taster. Looks alright; light for a brown ale though. A transparent copper with foamy off-white head. Smells of mild roast and malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An easy drinker, but otherwise forgettable.
