Cybercat (3878) - Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Pours a barely translucent warm chocolaty brown with a fairly thick and rather persistend light tan head. Malty aroma has an overtone of molasses and hints of miso and caramel. Satisfying malty flavor has caramel and molasses notes and a woody hop undertone with just a bit of bitterness. Texture has average fizziness and average body. Though nothing special, it still merits at least a try.

arminjewell (8478) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Pour out of bottle is dark brownish almost black with some red slightly off white/tan head. Aroma brings notes of caramel, nuts, biscuit and toast, hints of earth and slight grass as well. Taste is a bit watery, but notes of caramel, some slight hints of biscuit, touch of vanilla and some slight dark fruit, finishing fairly sweet, but slightly dry in there. Some carb pushes it through the palate fairly well, a bit thin. Tasty for 4.3% for sure.

DiarmaidBHK (3682) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle from Bruisin ales. Pours very, very dark brown with an inch of khaki head. Just a gorgeous looking beer. A hint of malt on the nose. I get some nuttiness with a hint of chocolate. Finishes clean. It’s a nicely balanced quaffable example of the style.

blipp (6722) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Sweet and roasted malty aroma with some nutty notes. The flavor has sweet nutty malts, with some light roasty notes and some toffee-like sweetness. Pretty good.

reggiedunlop (3410) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is lightly chocolatey and nutty. Flavor has more caramel than chocolate...also nutty. Mouthfeel is light/medium and lively...finish is nutty and roasty.

mike67 (895) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2012
On tap at The Liberty in Charlotte. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma is of toasted, nutty malt, prunes and plums. Light, smooth, quite thin body. Taste is of some toasted malt and some dark fruit. I’m not impressed with this brew.

beerme31 (543) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours very dark brown, thin brown head. Aroma is strong chocolate like a brownie. Also some basement aromas. Taste is mild sweet roasty chocolate. Medium body, higher carbonation, mildly bitter lingering fizzy finish. Overall an OK brown ale.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2011
Dark brown to black coloured beer with a small off white head and some little carbonation. Slightly roasted malty to almost chocolaty aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is malty, chocolat roasted with a light creamy ending. Nice taste but misses some character.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Served on draft at the brewpub, 4/6/11. Pours a clear dark red color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of nutty, chocolate malts with a leafy hop finish. The taste is caramel, nutty notes, chocolate and leafy hops. Medium bodied.
