COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer started as a Southern English Brown, and evolved from there. The nose almost comes across as caramel, but when you drink, you will find that it is not sweet. Dark, toasty, and lightly sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, biscuit, and caramel, this beer is complex but very drinkable. A rustic but balanced beer without a strong hop presence, definitely made for the malt lovers of the old world.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2012 Dark brown in color with an off-white head. Mild roast, chocolate, quite earthy, maybe some coffee grounds. Taste has just a touch of bitterness. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, and cocoa. A mild sweetness, maybe some toffee and molasses, too.

bhensonb (11488) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is primarily darkish milk chocolate. Med+ body. Creamy. Flavor is bitter chocolate, some sludgy burnt malt, and hints of treacle and coffee. Definitely on the dry side of life. Has none of that odd roast malt aspect often found in browns. This beer is something of it’s own. Nice stuff.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Nice dark brown pour from the can with a beige head. I get some sweet roasted nuts, nice rich coffee, roasted malt, dark toasted bread, and some milk chocolate in the nose. The flavor is coffee, roast, some nuts, and just enough bitterness to finish the beer nicely. Enjoyable brew.

Tap at Monkey Paw. Clear, deep red pour. Cocoa dusty, richer malt nose. Decent dusty body, lots of cocoa powder. One note.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2012
Draught Small off-white rim, over black beer. Roasted, cigarette ashes, smells dry. Dry, but still quite some sweet; nutty, bit ashy, charred wood & cypress cones. Feels rather well-carbonated; slick, finishes rather empty. Bit run-of the mill, no faults.

Not the worst brown ale, not the best. IT pours a robust dark brown. The flavor is a bit blunt but full-on.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
16oz can pours a rutty red mahogany with light tan head. The aroma offers up bold rich malt roastiness, some nuttiness and a bit of chocolaty earthiness around the edges. The taste is similar with rich malt roastiness rimmed with coffee and some nuttiness. It gets fairly dark roasty into the finish almost taking on a burnt malt note. Big bold flavor here. A robust brown ale maybe?
