A brown beer, nice, but a bit harsh in the finish and so not super drinkable. Brown coloured, no head. Very malty and rich aged malt aroma.

Draft at Capones in norristown, PA. Pours a dark copper color with amber edges and a one finger off-white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Sporadic streaks of lace left behind. Mild aroma with some candy sugar, dark fruit notes and mild spice. Pretty tame though with minimal malt presence. Some caramel and toffee but the sugar and vinous fruit notes are overpowering. Medium bodied with a slightly tart yeast presence along with some peppery spice, candy sugar and vinous fruit flavor. Dry with subtle funk, pepper, clove, candy sugar sweetness and licorice. Again, the malt presence is minimal with subtle caramel, toffee and biscuit followed by more grape, raisin and dark berry sweetness. Decent but leans heavy on the Belgian not enough on the brown ale side for my preference.

more a brown ale that happens to have belgian yeast than a belgian ale that happens to be brown, if that makes sense. a nice crisp, malty sweet american brown ale base, subtle hops make a showing. as it warms the interplay between the dry, spicy belgian yeast and the malt is really nice. good brew."

hopdog (10255) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle - Scratch 80. Poured a deep amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, dried pile of raked leaves, caramel, toasted bread, and some yeastiness. Tastes of caramel, toasted nuts, cola, and yeast. Somewhat on the thinner side.

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Tap - @ RHP. Pours clear caramel-brown, nice medium fizzy whitish head, fully disappearing. Nice aromas of caramel, malted chocolate, roasted nuts, and dark sweet fruit, plums and figs. Tastes of malted vanilla, nice dark fruit, touch of bananas and other esters. Medium-full bodied, rather lively (belying its appearance) with long finish. Good brew. Belgian in ancestry fer shark.

This is a dubbel. Nutty, toasty, semi sweet, light fruit esters... Overall a solid brew but nothing too great.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle from PUB’N. Pours a great shade of ruby with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is rich, complex, a nice figgy and berry-fruity nose with hints of spice, hops, and yeasty malt. Tastes malty, spicy, rather dry, with a lot of Grand Cruey fruity notes, figgy, cherry, spicy, and cobwebby old-aley esters. This one is outstanding, and I’d love to see this introduced all year round. I discovered Scratch 4, and I discovered this one, which I would call Musty Dusty Old Ale.
