A dark malty beer. Smooth and round session style beer. but perhaps lacking complexity necessary to make it stand out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza. This is a malty brown ale with nice dark fruit and heavy spice complex with being too overbearing. Perfect wintertime ale.

Bottle. Pours a muddy brown with small head. It has a nice malty aroma. The flavor is malty and slightly nutty. Very drinkable and good all around.

Pours bright mahogany into a Sam glass. Bright micro white head with little retention recedes to skim rim. Sour caramel aromas. Thin with sweet molasses and toffee upfront turning to bitter dried fruit in the lasting finish.

Une bouteille achetée à Richford, VT. Une robe brune sur laquelle on observe un mince col mousseux. Un nez qui est fait de chocolat, de caramel et de fruits foncés. Un goût qui est construit autour des malts grillés et caramélisés. Des flaveurs de noix et la présence de houblons épicés. Un corps moyen-mince bercé par une bonne effervescence. Une texture qui n’est pas aqueuse. Une finale qui propose une certaine amertume vraisemblablement propulsée par les noix et par les houblons.

Pours a deep brown with reddish highlights when held to light and a huge fluffy off white head that persists forever. Smells of caramel and light chocolate with a hint of earthy hops. Not much of a nose on this one. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Caramel, brown sugar, and a hint of chocolate with a touch of earth and mineral water. Medium to thin body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick and bubbly mouthfeel. Old ale is a real stretch for this brew, but at 7.4% I never noticed the abv. This drinks more like a brown ale but even at that its really bland. Nice to try, but I doubt I’d pick it up again.

ben4321 (3564) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 11/13/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly light, with some malty notes, caramel, and a bit of earth
Appearance: It pours an amber-brown color with a small, fizzy beige head
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, heavy malty, and a little bit bitter as well
Palate: The body of this beer is medium, it has a mediocre at best feel, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This one is not a great beer. It feels flawed, doesn’t drink that nicely, and just isn’t all that good...

BroSpud (1596) - , Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2012
12oz bottle from Julios. Pours a medium brown with a very thin white head. Typical flavor and characteristics of an english brown. Caramel and fruit flavors with a slight sourness. Nothing great here.

Bouteille achetée par Patrick, encore une fois merci. Bière de couleur noisette avec une mousse beige peu durable. Le nez est quelque peu de bière commerciale avec une touche de caramel. La bouche est toute aussi commerciale mais une amertume en fin de bouche désagréable gâhce la sauce.
