COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth, full-bodied nut brown ale, lightly hopped with a hint of roasted and crystal malts. This ale is dark in color without the heavy taste of porter or stout.

Bottle. Poured Brown with little white head, notes of toasted caramel. finishes easy. All the right pieces, but it doesn’t seem to pull them all together into something special.

This beer has dropped off over the years, or could it be that with experience I expect more? Nice drinkable ale that will not offend.

Black body with tan head, nothing unusual. Smells of malt, chocolate and coffee. Not very good on the tongue, taste is boring and unimaginative: nuts and chocolate. After is slightly sweet chocolate. Poured from a 12 oz bottle purchase at New World Brewery in Ybor City, Tampa, FL.

bottle. I found this beer to be so-so. too smooth, too bland. Maybe I’m just not a big fan of the style...

thegreenrooster (3269) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Pour is a dark red with no head. Aroma is of oily hops and nothing really else. Flavor is roasted malts but again nothing else. Pretty bland and watery

hopscotch (9380) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Draft... Clear, dark ruby ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is subtle chocolate, red wine and vanilla. Nicely balanced and a bit tangy. Nutty with chocolate and vineous notes. Medium-bodied and very lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes creamy and barely bitter. Not much to it, really.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2006
65 cl bottle. Dark reddish amber colour with a weak head. Aroma of nuts and toffee. Flavour of caramel and toffee too, also notes of light hoppyness. Little average and dull.

On tap at Pizza Plant. As the description says, this is one of the darkest brown ales I’ve seen, without a real heavy flavor or mouthfeel. But to be honest, it seems almost a little too lacking in substance, or body, or much of anything. I love dark brews, but I expect a lot from them, and this looks like it’s trying to be a light brew in dark brew clothing. Disappointing.
