Fresh bottle from brewery, hand bottled. Brown with lots of lace. Bubbly head. Smelled like a scotch, tasted hoppy like an amber cross-style.

On tap at McNeill’s. Nice malty roasted notes, bit of chocolate and a bit of smoke. Light caramel and fruity hoppiness. Dark medium brown clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium bodied with light to mefium carbonation. Starts medium dry with some nutty bitterness and light roasted grainy malt. Medoum bitter finish, mild neutral fruits, and a bit of hoppiness. Overall, a nice brown ale, with a notable hop presence and some solid malt character.

This is a great brown ale, I really enjoy the overall flavor. Definitely worth a try.

asheft (2484) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2006
[bottle from the general store in Sharon, VT] Mega buttered popcorn diacetyl aroma. I like diaceytl in moderate amounts, but this is way over the top! A hint of US hops makes it through the butter. Hazy reddish brown with bubbly tan web that forms modest lacing. The diacetyl makes it into the flavour, but there’s some nice piney hops backed up by caramel and faint chocolate malt to overcome the dominating popcorn/butterscotch flavour. This would be awesome beer if they removed about 75% of the diacetyl. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2006
DL 06 parking lot: Poured a murky amber color. The aroma was kind of light. Mostly of toffee and malt. The malt seemed a little aged. Sweet toffee flavor again a little thin. Actually seems a little oxidized to me. Thin body and a semi-dry finish.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2006
Sampled off of the picnic table at Dark Lord Day - brown ale? not really tasty? you bet - quite dry and herbal, yet slightly cocoa-like, too - abundant hops, and a kind of orange/cranberry jam thing going on - one of the more unique beers of the day.
