JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Batch 4 - bottled December 09. Sweet caramel and light roast aroma, slight butterscotch, emit from the impressively frothy head. Deep ruby when held up to the light, otherwise nicely brown. Impressive array of flavors - some cherry-like tang, light roast, deep caramel and a fruity/citric hop tinge. Very crisp and easily quaffed with a tart quality from the yeast. Calling this a brown ale does not do this justice - it has little in the way of chocolate malts and is damn impressive.

JDBaker11058 (1366) - Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Appearance: medium amber brown, short light tan head, creamy but quickly fading. Aroma: brown and candi sugars, belgian yeast, some caramel and chocolate, bit of unripe banana. Taste: malty and sweet, with raisin, fig, a bit of caramel and chocolate, a bit of leather, and strong yeasty character. Finish: lingering yeasty notes, with lasting leather, tobacco, and candi sugar. Notes: A nice enough brown ale. Pretty prominent Belgian characteristics, and well-balanced. Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida.

Bottle @ THT November. Pours a clear reddish beer with a small ring of off white head on top. Aroma of some Brett (?), grapes, chocolate and some roasted coffee. Flavor is lightly sour, even some peppery burn in the back. Thin mouthfeel, good drinkability and good stuff.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 Bottle. Pours dark mahogany brown, tiny but very nice beige head. Aroma is fruity berries, marmalade and caramel. Slight toasty malt. Taste is medium sweet, caramel and toasted. Some nuts too. Really smooth texture. Medium to low bitter finish. A good fruity brown. Reminds me of studentermix.
