A full-bodied, brown ale with a rich chocolate taste created from roasted chocolate and caramel malts. Topped with Czech Saaz hops to give it a spicy flavor and aroma.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 15, 2013
Pours dark chestnut, mild head. Aroma is a bit of black pepper and caramel. Flavour is some nut, caramel. Finish has alcohol. Carbonation seems quite high, adds to the creaminess. Pretty underwhelming, nowhere near the best browns, the only thing interesting about this is the combination of sharp carbonation and creamy mouthfeel.

Tasty brown ale. Aroma is malty, but faint. A nice hop tingle on the tongue. Chestnut in color with white 1-finger head.

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2013
355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Caramel roasted malt aroma is very nice. Dark brown tea colour with a good sized tan head. Full flavoured with a strong body even though the beer is a bit thin in the mouth. Vanilla flavours with a rich creamy mouthfeel.

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Aroma light coffee with a more pronounced musty wood or cork bending it into a Belgium feel. Yes that is what I would describe it as, a Belgium Brown. Funky one at that. Cocoa, caramel, creamy and rich with a bitter finish. A touch too sweet.

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Total Wine - McLean, 3/4/13

Aroma: The nose is sweet and roasty, chocolate, caramel, some nuts, and dark fruit
Appearance: It pours a brown color with a red hue, a beige-brown head, and some mid-heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor, like the nose suggested, is pretty sweet with lots of roasted malts as well
Palate: This one is light-medium bodied, a bit sticky, and has average-plus carbonation
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid beer. It came off a bit too sweet for me, but it has some really nice components. This one is definitely worth trying.

beerandbeyond (625) - ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Hazy brown color with some reddish hues and small beige head. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, winter cookies, soft roast and floral hops. Sweet malty flavors, some candied nuts, low bitterness, mellow spiciness, faint dried fruits and a bit of cloying caramel. med-full bodied, somewhat too heavy and alcoholic, but warming and OK.

mikedR (928) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2013
I like it. Has a nice nutty aroma and malty-nutty taste. A hint of chocolate, and just a bit of spice to keep things interesting. Not complex, but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
