Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle-can from BrewDog. It pours deep brown with a medium beige head. The nose is earth, toast, toffee, light spice, cocoa, light coffee, umami notes and wood. The taste is earthy, roasted malt, pine, varnish, peppery, toffee, toasted brown sugar, peanut, citrus peel, cocoa and some alcohol warmth with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Nice depth of flavour, well rounded and good bitterness. Another winner from Oskar Blues.

jhliesen (735) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Can--second beer purchased at the Brevard brewery. Deep, ruby, brown color with a slightly less than medium head and low carbonation. Lots of chocolate and malt in the aroma with a touch of coffee. The taste follows with a nice belt of hops to give you a bit of a surprise at the end of the drink. Nice brew on a cold (for me) Carolina evening.

TURDFERGUSON (3953) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle shaped can thanks to john boy and Oskar blues. Drank from the bottle at dmitri’s house after work. Tastes roasty, quite resinous, piney, light coffee notes. A little harsher than I would prefer on the palate. Okay, but id probably rather have a dales.

emacgee (4024) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Pours a soft hazy brown with one finger of frothy tan head. Nose definitely showing some hops, woody and dank notes dominate with some citrus rind and green notes. A touch of biscuity grain and light cacao show as well. Woody hop notes dominate the flavor with some heady hops showing too. Moderately bitter with some peanut hull on the finish.

Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale tan head. The head has a good dose of chocolatey malt and a whisper of coffee. Nice citric nose. Palate is smooth and fairly dry. Taste pretty much follows the nose and the head! A nice mixture of orange citric hops and chocolatey malt. Little coffee. Finishes smooth and dry. Tasty.

Can from brewdog online
Murky chestnut with beige head. Piney hops with some simcoe orange. Medium carbonation and body, fairly sweet, orange sherbet, pithy hops, dry slightly chalky finish.

jeremyh70 (707) - Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Poured brown with some ruby highlights, a good off white head and lacing. Aroma is definitely hop forward and somewhat dank and piney with an underlying malt character. Taste is hoppy also with pine, a bit of citrus and fairly big bitterness. Some brown ale roasted malt and chocolate flavors are detectable but are overpowered by the hops. Finishes dry with a bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel was smooth with a medium body and carbonation. Tasted more like a black IPA than a brown ale. Not bad but I’d rather have a traditional brown ale.
