Bottle. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown. Toast, a bit of nutty malt on the nose with some touches of roasting coffee. Medium bodied, smooth and sweet with a nice amount of malt to it. Nice mouthfeel, creamy and soft. Finishes up with some nutty malt and a nice toasty bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2011 Pours a reddish brown with small off white head. Smells of toasted malts, chocolate and molasses. A nutty, malt flavor with some bitterness. The body is light to medium with crisp carbonation. Overall, a decent brown ale.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Wow, some really nasty looking stuff at the bottom of the bottle. Almost looks like cream of wheat. Strong head of fine bubbles. Roasty and nutty aroma with some molasses. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Slightly bitter flavor but is dominated by roasted flavors. Some light grainy notes and tea leaves. Lingering roasty and bitter finish. An ok brew.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Slightly hazy deep brown body with a wispy thin lightly off white head. The nose is the expected rich toffee and pecans. There is also a hint of apple. The taste has black tea and old caramel. There is also a strong malty bread dough character. This reminds me a lot of Newcastle and they nailed that style of brown ale. Actually, this is pretty nice for the style, but the carbonation is a touch harsh for me.

On tap @ Lure’s, Crownsville, Md-Brown pour w/a tan head. Some chocolate on the aroma. Slight flavors of roasted malt, some chocolate, some interest... Boring example of a boring style, only tried it as a free tick when a friend who likes browns got a free sample from the bartender. I know I’m not thrilled w/this style, so I sure wasn’t gonna buy it!

thooper41 (548) - BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2010
12oz bottle: Appearance is medium brown with off white head, aroma of pale and roasted malts, flavor is again with pale and roasted malts with hints of chocolate. For being a more generic brew I kind of like this one.
