thornecb (4663) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Pours deep mahogany into a shaker. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Dark medicinal and caramel aromas. Soft with bitter herbs and caramel front to back. Lasting bitter medicine finish.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Pours near black with reddish hues and a thin wispy tan head. Notes of chocolate, resinous, piney, raisin, spice. Full bodied, moderately sweet with soft carbonation. Better than expected.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
Was surprised by the colour, a little darker than i was expecting. Has an almost Belgian feel to the aroma. A bit musty, some darker fruits and the faintest bit of licorice on the back. Some good hopping with nice sweetness following from the malts.

BigBeer45 (1297) - Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle from Champanes, this ale had a brown pour with a trace of haze into the glass, the pour made a one to two finger faint off-white / light tan head that receded to an island of a cover and ring, it left spots and large fingers of lacing on the glass, the bottle had a thin ring of sediment on the bottom of the bottle, this brown ale had aromas of toasted malt, nut, chocolate, faint caramel, malt and brown sugar sweetness, the aromas were not that big on the nose, it had flavors of toasted malt, caramel, chocolate, a brown sugar like sweetness, some prune like dark fruit, a little mint from the hops(?), the finish had toasted malt, sweetness and some hop bitterness, the sweetness was pretty strong, the mouth feel was medium maybe a touch more, it was a little sticky on the lips and there was soft to average carbonation, the nose on this beer was not that big, the flavor was bigger, the sweetness was pretty prominent and kept this beer from getting a better rating, a bigger nose and less sweetness would help this drink.

Scrapersnbeer (1500) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Musty oat aroma, murky brownish color. Taste is a booze laden, bitter sting, as it should be given the claimed 80 BUs. Has some of the nutty brown ale background, but it is too light and too strong for that style.Body is a drag, though I wouldn’t say that heavy. Not the worst Minhas brew, and only costs 2.25 for a bomber.

Cybercat (3733) - Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Had as Boatswain H.L.V. (Heavy Lift Vessel) Ale. Aroma has hardly any strength or notes, scarcely smells like beer at all. Pours a dark, barely translucent sepia with a thick, if not persistent, light buff head. Flavor is malty, a little hoppy, rather bitter - and a nasty bitter, not a nice hoppy bitter. Smooth texture has OK fizz but not much body. Barely palatable, not one to which I will return.

Patrickctenchi (4449) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Pours deep brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of nuts, caramel. Taste is creamy malt, a backdrop of wooden, bitter hops....old chocolate milt. Dull and watery. What’s with this brewer ?!?........sad.

thedm (5001) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 1, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy large sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent dark cola brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of brown malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Mediocre but totally drinkable brown ale. Had this in a bomber bottle via Trader Joe’s Boatswain label. Had some interesting aroma going on, mostly boozy, though. Nice caramel malt color, and a cool Boatswain label. Mystical Jack label is kind of creepy.
