JorgeLee (1270) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
Tap at GBBF 2012. Deep brown colour. Slightly boozy malt aroma. Taste is very smooth, malty, caramel, toffee, slightly sweet. A bit fuller of body than some of the traditional English brown ales. Well made and enjoyable, if not super exciting.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Cask at CK. Pours a clear, deep maroon with a dwindling beige head. Nose is twizzlers and white grape juice. Taste is watery, sharper nutty bitterness, cloying white grape juice and heavy cherry juice box. Sugary, bland, odd bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sleepeeg3 (2) - USA - FEB 20, 2012 does not count
Medium bodied, dark, mocha flavored with a little hoppy kick. Very flavorful with a nice head. One of my favorite beers. A shame they stopped bottling it.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 15, 2012
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a dark brown with a small light tan head that has good retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The nutty toffee, earthy hops, and a bit of caramel. The taste has a light sweetness with a bit of nuttiness and toffee. There is also some caramel and a bit of earthiness. The finish has a hint of bitterness and a little sweetness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Descent brown ale. I think I like this one a little more than Tumbler.

Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Light chestnut with off white short head. Sweet caramel flavours straight off, sucrose with a hint of maple syrup. Thin on the palate though. A bit of a strange one.
