Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2014
On tap at Llywelyn’s Pub in St Charles. Served a dark brown color with a thick head that faded to nice lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of caramel and light touch of grain. Taste of malt, caramel sweetness with bit of garin in the background. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Medium body, smooth and a bit creamy. Nice beer, for the style.

It looks pretty. Now for the rest of the story. Horribly over-hopped. Hops aroma completly masks any aroma of malt. The same goes for taste-- all I get is hops, hops, hops, with a very long, resinous-bitter finish. I had three friends do a blind taste test, and not one of them identified this as a brown ale. Two actually thought it was IPA! If you like IPA, you might like this. If you are expecting the character, flavor, and aroma of a brown ale, you’ll be disapointed.

wxman (1474) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2013
Pours a clear golden copper with a big full antique lace head that goes a little flat after a couple of minutes. Aroma is dry grain and floral spiciness. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttery biscuits and a little hop bitterness to finish it off. Good product.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Tap at Paradiso dupont. Pours a clear cola red. Medium tan Foam. Spots of lacing. Nose is hazelnut, praline, cookie. Taste is really nice peanut butter chocolate cookie, woah, hazelnut, almond, praline, Toblerone. Surprisingly good. Worth finding. Palate finishes with a harsh metal twang typical of Paradiso’s tap system. I’ll ignore that.

jandd1983 (2753) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 18, 2013
On tap at Llwelyn’s in St. Charles. It poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma was a little hoppy with citrus and a touch of maltiness. The taste was slightly grainy, a little citrus hoppiness, since it was dry-hopped, but lacks depth and backbone. Not bad.
