Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2009
Draught at Helsinki Beer Festival 2009. Mahagony color with creamy head. Chocolatey, nutty, toasty and slightly coffeish aroma. The flavor follows the aroma with medium to firm bitterness. Slightly astringent nutty and chocolatey finish. Burps american hops (centennial?) but does not otherwise have a lot of hop aroma or flavor. The aroma and finish is better than the middle part.

rederic (3222) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2008
On cask at the Tap Room, brown color, with a white head, faint toasted malt, but with an impressive floral hop leafy, grassy nose, with kind of a hint of lavender flower, with some citrusy in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a toasty, faint roasted malt character but with a good dry hop leafiness, grassiness accent, embracing a juicy resiny, coniferous mouthfeel, with some grapefruit and lemon peel citrusy, leading towards a well floral hop leafy bittering finish. The beer seems overpower by his hoppiness rather than his toastiness.

Braudog (6041) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2008
Cask pint at the Tap Room. Pitch black (dark for a brown), sudsy head that totally clings. Nuttily bitter, tightly wrapped in a smooth, drinkable brew. Light body and mildly carameled. (#3360, 3/29/2008)

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Served in an imperial pint glass. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, touch of maltiness. Taste is slightly grainy, very citrus hoppy, as it is dry-hopped, but lacks depth and backbone. Average, but the hops make this much, much better.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUL 7, 2007
On tap at the brewpub; served in their imperial pint glass. Pours a beautiful deep brown with garnet highlights and a creamy, off-white, diminishing head. The aroma is fairly muted: dark roasted and caramel malts with a piny hop backing. It doesn’t smell like a typical brown. Light to medium-bodied and slick on the tongue, it ends bitter and dry. This tastes more like a malt-forward pale ale than a brown. Perhaps the name comes simply from the color, as the flavor is a roasted, almost burnt, malt front with a distinctly unbrownlike dry hoppy finish.

vyvvy (4777) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Pours brown with a reddish hue. The aroma is nutty with toasted malt and coffee with some stale-ish notes. Medium body with soft carbonation. The taste is nutty and woody with toasted / roasted malt - a bit harsh and lightly sour. The finish goes heavy on the woody and coffee aspects and is quite bitter. A fairly aggressive version of a brown ale.
