JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2006
22 oz bottle. Ugly pour, cola coloured with a head that disappears just as quickly. Aroma is malty, toasted nuts, brown sugar, light toffee and some sweetish chocolate. Flavour is similar, chocolate malt, hazelnuts, toffee, bread and toast. Thin bodies, leafy hops through the finish wiht a moderate bitterness. Okay, but not great.

skoisirius (1905) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 5, 2006
22 oz bottle into a Dimpled Mug glass. Pours a very dark brown that isnít see through. The head is quite creamy and quickly dissapates to the sides of the glass. The aroma is very roasty amd malty with overtones of carmalized malt and nuts. The flavor is actually more roasted than I was expected. It starts off with a tiny bit of a coffee hint that moves into a sweet nutty and roasted malty finish. A hop note kicks in towards the end of the finish. A very solid and very drinkable brew.

Very good beer. Pours with an amazing color and very creamy head. It smelled of caramel, hazelnuts and malt. Very good hazelnut taste with roasted coffee and malt. A little sweet, but a very drinkable beer.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2006
The nut flavor is nicley pronounced. Very smooth. Quite flavorful yet too mild and sweet for my tastes. I prefer the bolder Big Sky Moose Drool Brown Ale Iíve tried.

adrian910ss (2561) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2006
22 oz bomber. Pours a dark sandy brown color with a creamy thick beige brown head. Aroma is of sweet hazelnut cream, malt, fresh caramel and a hint of sweet butter. Taste is very smooth with hints of sweet hazelnut,some malts, chewy caramel and a slight hint of hazelnut roasted coffee beans. Quite enjoyable, but I couldnt drink more than one of these in a sitting.

vyvvy (5470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Pours dark rich brown with a dark tan head. Aroma is rich and sweet malt with a bit of nuttiness ~ velvety aroma. Medium / thich mouthfeel. Very smooth with lightly fizzy carbonation. Starts with sweet nutty malt goodness with some roasted hints and bits of chocolate. Finish adds a spicy hoppy bite. Very smooth beer, probably the best brown beer Iíve had.

Ibrew2or3 (8010) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2006
On tap @ Mellow Mushroom. Clear brown color with red hues shining thru with white head. Full rich aroma of caramel candy. Amazing aroma. Like being in a caramel candy shop. Full caramel flavor like no other beer Iíve tasted. Nice nuttiness too. The beer ends smooth with lingering nut flavor.

Delirium (645) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Sweet aroma primarily of caramel with butterscotch and hazelnut, plus bits of chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, and some general roastiness. Flavor is along the same lines but a bit more subdued---less sweet, but a little more hazelnutty and almost slightly spicy in the relatively short finish. Pretty good.
