Tasted 9/24/09. Draft from The Bottleworks. Dark brown amber hue with a clinging off-white head. Aromas of toasted malts and molassis with a touch anise. Mild fudge undertone. Medium bodied with smooth malts and a slightly bitter finish. Tangy esters mix very nicely with the nutty brownie flavors. The malts are dominant with a smooth and mild finish. Good session.

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2009 Served at the Schlafly Bottleworks location on 9-5-09. Dark born/blck color, thin off-white, filmy head. Almost non-existant aroma, very light brunt note with some toasted malt hints but really not much else. Flavor is a mixture of chocolate malt and maris otter giving it a pretty toasty uniqueness, not much hop or sweetness but a light grassy hops note with a slight ashy ending. Mouth feel is light, low carbonation and light lacing on the glass. Overall this is just an okay brew. A pretty unique flavor but not too sure how well everything worked in conjunction with one another in the brew. 10-9-09 Cask Aged American Brown Pours a brown-ruby color with a tan/off-white head that is pretty thin. Aroma is a smooth light toasted malty note, light chocolate hints, light Fuggles-type hoppiness and a grassy/weedy hops ending. Flavor has a very toasted malt note, some Maris Otter maltiness, light chocolate, light nuttiness, grassy hops as a whole. Low carbonation, warm and clear. Overall a good brewthat works well for dry hopping witnin the cask, much more grassy than the normal, non-cask aged version. Aroma=5 App=4 Flav=6 Pal=3 Overall=13

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Firkin tapping at Party Source. Poured a hazy brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, nut and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Solid toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

Roast stale coffee. And I mean really stale. Indistinct roastiness in the aroma too. Lively carbonation. Fits the brown ale style pretty well with plenty of roasty malty body. Some smokiness too. Very tasty.

Miksu (5047) - 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 (3256) - 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.
