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.

Pours a dark brownish red with a tan head. Decent malt aroma. Sweet malt upfront with a mildly bitter, brief finish. Fairly thin in flavor and body to me, though.

Brilliant ruby brown, some tan head. Sweet malty aroma, some roast and some biscuit. Full bodied but cloying. Somewhat clean flavor, some malt, some caramel, some roast.

12 oz bottle...poured brown w/ a small tan head. Very faint aromas of caramel, molasses, toasted malts. Very nutty tasting along with some bitter chocolate, and light coffee. Watery mouth feel with a very dry finish...descent, but not great. Felt like something was missing...

Clear light brown with a quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma of mild caramel, nuts and toffee. Taste is more of the same, a little thin. Maybe a step up from Newcastle, but nothing to write home about.

Brown, tan dark leather color. Floral nose, slightly malty. Burnt wood, bitter, coffee flavor. Poorly roasted malts. Thin.

22oz. (Bottled on March 2005) Could barely get any aroma out of this brown ale, but there was a small nose of toffee. Had a nice soft head over a light shade of brown color. Minor ingredients in the flavor like toffee, toasty malt, and some sort of nuts. Rather boring.

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.

I really didn’t like the aftertaste--too chemical and dirty. The color is very nice, but the smell was also chemical. I thought I would like this beer a lot and was disappointed, frankly.

At best, I thought this was just an average brown ale with a few faults and little else. The aroma was a bit metallic like, some malt aroma and a slight bitterness like walnuts. Appearance was a nice dark brown with a nice thick head. Mouthfeel was a little harsh which turned me off a bit. Flavor was nutty but there was some toasted bread, and a mineral astringency which was not a tasty suprise at all.
