UPDATED: MAR 30, 2008 bottle. decently priced at the local grocery store. Deep mohogany pour (darker than most brown ales) with an inch head that diminishes to a nice film. Malt forward nose yields to a great balance of malt, nut, and pleasant hops. Definitely full-bodied but not heavy. Great!

Not much for aroma. There really wasn’t much head because this bottle may be older since there wasn’t much carbonation to it.

conor23 (110) - Elgin, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Sweet aroma, malt chocolate flavor, with a burnt/nutty aftertaste. Smooth but with a little bite in the finish. Very drinkable but also has a lot of flavor.

Murky appearance with aroma of malt and toffee. Enjoyable flavor with notes of toasted nuts. Very enjoyable.

Pours a drak amber red with white head. Full bodied and smooth yet light in taste. Slight hint of roastiness & malt. Head dissapates rather quickly. Some hop tinge along with a somewhat of a slick palate.

Nebulor (109) - , California, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Lots of caramel and malt aromas. Pours a dark amber color with a tan head. Lots of action and too difficult to see the suspension. Sweet caramel taste with a hint of broth and has a bit of a grapefruit background. Medium/moderate bodied, resinous, with soft carbonation. Very drinkable, I think the twist off may cause this to be a little flatter than on tap.

I may be biased because I like dark beers best. This one has a nice clean finish but the overall flavor is not as robust as I look for. Probably one of the better brown ales I’ve had lately but I tend to go for a stout or porter for more sweetness and bouquet.

ksigty (107) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2007
The brown ale did not have as much flavor as the others I have tried. It may have been a bad batch based on other reviews. It had a good malt flavor but not very strong or complex at all.

Bottle. Smells mild and sweet, pours light brown or dark amber. Almost no head. Bitter sweet taste with hints of chocolate and a coffee finish. Highly drinkable dessert ale.
