Commercial description has it about right. That said, the 6.7% abv did a very good job of hiding as I found it very hard to detect. Hops subdued for mine whereas the toffee and malts was very obvious.

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2014

mjs (4821) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2014
(Keg at Kaisla, 20141222) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had caramel, molasses and something metallic. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, grass, caramel and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A harsher brew that I would like a brown ale to be.

rondphoto (2301) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 18, 2014
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear amber brown with a beige rim head, stripes of lace. Taste is solid malt with a backbone of floral hops. Carbonation on the swallow, then both sides move 50-50 to a finish that first blooms, then rapidly dies out. A pretty solid brew.

Christpuncher (1401) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Super malty brown ale. No roasted malt it but flavor in this one. This tastes like a poorly made pale ale. Pours copper in color with a thick tan head. Had a bottle pour at home ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tekstr1der (23) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Pours a deep copper with small, fast-disappearing head. Smells of malt with a slight metallic tinge.This comes through in the taste which seems a little mineral-ey, but well-balanced with notes of caramel - not too sweet though. Great body makes it very smooth and drinkable.
