chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2011
On tap at Natty Greenes, Greensboro NC on 13 July 2006. Chestnut brown colour. Nutty and borderline dry. Just a touch of caramel and a lick of dusty hops. Malt is more toasty than sweet caramel. Relatively firm mouthfeel. Not usually a style I’m too keen on but this was a decent enough example.

arminjewell (6070) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, 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.

blipp (5967) - 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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2006
This is a decent brown ale. It pours a deep chestnut color with a good-lacing ecru head. The aroma is a lightly roasted malt with some crushed nuts and a bit of milk chocolate. The flavor is a smoothly sweet roasted malt with some nutty bitterness... and then the chocolate sneaks up and delivers a hard kick in the finish. A good sessionable ale.
