Fatehunter (1683) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Pours a finger and half of head on a dark brown body. The aroma is dark dry grains. The taste is caramel, muted apricot sweetness, molasses with a long tingle finish. The texture is crisp and fizzy. It has great flavor.

7.5% ABV. Strong Brown Ale Alcoholic nose which carries some nice deeply roasted malts. Approaches an English style porter. Full mouthful of nice clean malty flavors. Finishes off with some quality bitters. They do bloom a little to give off some nice floral accents that reminded me of Calla lillies. Goes on Favorites List.

Tayeth (507) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2015
Geruch säuerlich, aber auch nach Zuckerrübenkraut. Geschmack relativ kantig und ziemlich bitter. Man kann keine eindeutigen Noten heraus schmecken.

MadRobin (2411) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 3, 2015
On cask at The Ale House Columbia. Clear, dark mahogany wins thin, creamy tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of booze, butterscotch, licorice, red grapes and a little roasted malt. Taste of booze, butterscotch, nuts, floral hops, red grapes, licorice and roasted malt. This has a reasonable complex, but not especially pleasant taste. Full/medium body and low (cask) carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reggiedunlop (3469) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Pours a dark amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has a cheap roasty/nuttiness and a hint of burnt toffee. Flavor follows suit but steps up the toffee and adds that earthy bitterness for balance...slight booziness...muddled. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a dry earthy/burnt toffee finish.

solidfunk (5464) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Pretty decent; for a brown but not a huge amount of complexity. Pours maroon with OK bubbly head and lacing on cask. Some booze and some hops. Light roast. Cask at smoke and barrel.

blipp (7070) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Draft. Pours brown with an off white head. Toffee sweet malts, light earthy notes, and a bready malty and toffee sweet finish. Not bad.
