Pours a clear dark brown aroma of chocolate. Taste is sweet and syrupy with a toasted malt note. Moutheel is smooth and silky. Well balanced and light enough to leave you wanting more.

Not bad, not great. Going in the right direction, but I pick up some bitter medicinal qualities that aren't so good. Appearance is ok and so is aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at home. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is chocolate, cookie and nutty malt, dates, earthy and herbal hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Pours a mahogany brown color with a decent head and nice lacing on the glass.

Nutty, roasty.... Sort of earthy & woodsy.

Itís got a nice earthy hoppy presence. Itís got a nice nuttiness & some toasty malt. Itís lightly bitter, nicely enjoyable.

Although I don't pick up the standard but brown characteristics, this is a great beer that provides a lot of drinkability.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Keg, Blind Tiger, Bleecker St, Greenwich Village, 20/02/14. Ruby ringed with white. Really attractive brittle coffee bean aroma with hints of pistachio and chocolate. Deep layered malt, mellow English brown ale flavour with Curly Wurly, milky mocha, almond and butter biscuit notes. Some blueberry in the blender. Really balanced, rounded and good.

Lubiere (9789) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
A reddish brown ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet nutty caramel malt with light grassy hops. In mouth, a nutty malt with faint grassy hops, a tad boring. On tap at Beer Authority.
