Bière brune au goût de noisette, cette «Brown Ale» américaine présente un léger goût de café, enrichie de généreux houblons américains.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2015
A clear brown ale with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, a nice nutty caramel malt with light roasted notes and grassy floral hops, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet roasted caramel malt with light coffee notes, floral resinous hops lingering, very nice and hoppy interpretation. Bottle at Festibiere de Gatineau 2015.

mcberko (10565) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours a deep dark brown with a large beige head. Aroma brings out roasted malt and harsh hopping, more like a black IPA. Flavour is full-bodied, with lots of roasted malt, piney hops, and bitter dry cocoa. One of the most flavourful brown ales out there. Excellent.

Sammy (9981) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Unique brown ale, fresh bottle from Veux-Tu. Pours mid-brown color with lots of retained head, and leaving a lace sheet.Happy and woody aroma. Lots of roast, tobacco finish, a little cascade hop. Sediment is citrus concentrated hops. This is somewhat of a black IPA reborn in a wood barreled ale.Lots going on.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 My Bottom Line:
Earthy hop resins and hazelnut caramel gel from aroma to aftertaste in this healthy, harmonious American-style Brown Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tenacious head of foam covers the deep mahogany-hued brown.
-Malts also offer roasted touches. as well as some rye-like angles (Cararye?).
-Hops share citrusy tips before adding more earthiness.
-Body is not thin, not heavy. A beautifully rendered mouthfeel.
-Drinkability is quite high for a 7% brew.
-There are so few world-class Brown Ales out there that this one came as a surprise. A very tasty one at that!

czar (6208) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2013
pours hazy brown with a very nice light beige head, excellent retention and lacing. piney, sprucey, spicy and nutty malts, dry caramel malts, herbal-grassy, leafy green and citrus, earty, peppery, grainy. soft carbonation, medium body, nice grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. hoppy browns are not my favs - not that refreshing of a brew, but very nicely done!

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Clearish chestnut ale wearing an irregular, rather heterogeneous light beige foam. Frank, hop forward nose combining vigorous citrus fruits and toasty as well as roasted grains venturing into both chocolate and coffee spheres. The roast and acidity manage to keep away from each other’s throats and no flavour clash occurs there between those two sensitive partners. The hop/roast alliance rather reorients toward earthy, nutty, leafy, tobacco flavour currents. Fairly straightforward, but efficient, packed with flavors and bright, clean aromas. Very strong, impactful bitterness though so it’s really a hophead brown ale, but not a gimmicky one where malt is completely neglected. Perhaps a bit weaker in the texture department if anywhere; its carbo nation feeling a bit forced and accentuating the acidity where it was not necessary.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
In short: A very hoppy nutty brown ale, cranked-up the American way. Excellent.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed fresh one week after purchase.
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: Nose is roasted hazelnuts, fresh tobacco leafs, pecan pie, notes of hashish resin. Taste is rich nutty malts (hazelnuts and pecans swimming in caramel), a strong toasted sensation, peanut butter cookies, a generous hopping, a spicy-peppery edge to the hops. Bitterness sensation is medium and with a mild resinous character. A beer that could have been excellent but unfortunately the carbonation was excessive and made the beer less tasty than it really was. I loved that beer, and honestly I’m not sure I would be comfortable doing what I do to beer bottles I love if “bière” in french wasn’t a feminine word.

solidfunk (5953) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Good, well-balanced brown with a little citrus hoppiness and some roast malt aroma. Pours dark brown/maroon with huge foamy head and good lacing. Medium bitter finish. Soft carbonation. Bottle.

Boutip (5351) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep opaque brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of light coffee with roasted malt notes, light nuts and some earthy hoppy notes are also noticeable. Taste is a mix between some light nutty flavours, with some dry bitter coffee notes which are well balanced against some earthy hoppy notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed for the style with loads of complexity while retaining some good drinkability level.
