A - Pours a fairly dark red-brown color with a half-finger of off-white head. The head faded fairly quickly to a ring leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is full of lightly-roasted carmel malts with some nuttiness. There is also some sweet brown sugar and some hop in the background. T - Starts off pretty sweet. There is the carmel malts that hit right away, and also some additional background sweetness from the brown sugar and also some vanilla. There is additionally some deeper nutty elements. Through the middle a hit of brown sugar really comes out with some strong sweetness. The finish has a mix of the carmel malts, some sweetness, and some coffee flavor. A little bit too sweet overall. M - Medium bodied with a moderate amount of assertive carbonation. Just a tad watery but still very creamy and very smooth. The finish feels a bit thicker, almost a tad syrupy. D - Very drinkable. The sweetness can be a bit much after a while, but the taste overall is really nice. The finish is really nice. A bit more balance with the sweetness could help a lot.

Bottle in Northfield, MA. Medium brown body with oily head. Nose of malts and caramel. Taste of malts, quite oily texture. Slight bitterness in the finish. Quite good.

on tap-pours a light brown head and dark brown color with red tint. Aroma is sweet dark malt-molasses/chocolate, dark fruit-raisin. Taste is sweet dark malt-molasses/chocolate, dark fruit-raisin/cherry with some tart. Dry over takes sweet by mid-palate. Taste not up to aroma for me. 3.2

Pours a three finger light tan head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Almost black cloudy mahogany color. Roasted malt nose. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Flavor is malty, smooth, not overly sweet - decent brown. $3.55 for a 22oz bottle from Ruggeri & Sons Greenfield, MA.

georgekappus (296) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours black with a moderate tan head. Bubbles that coat the glass. Aroma of cherries, nuts, and cotton candy. Taste was sweet but not overwhelming with a nutty malty backbone. Thick mouthfeel.

Sammy (8395) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2007
This was unique.An ENglish mild. Winey aroma and colour, with merlot taste. Yet there was no wine barreling. Very little bitterness, and a tad of syrupiness. Very light body and easy drinking at 5.2%. A wine replacement.

Not the usual smooth brown ale that I have had before. Pours quite dark with little head. Malty and has some bitterness. Not my favorite brown ale.

Ugh! It smelled like vinegar... it tasted like vinegar but with a very very watery mouthfeel. Still better than any bud product tho.

22 oz. bottle. I’ll give them credit, its not a typical brown ale. Has some positive notes and negative. Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin off-white head that was chased away in about 30 seconds. Aroma of coffee and bittersweet chocolate a definite plus. Sweet, nutty flavor is offset by a weird taste like wet cardboard. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Glad I shared this bottle with my wife, I don’t think I would have finished 22 oz. of this beer.
