Pours a clear deep amber with a medium lt tan head...nice lacing. Aroma has light roastiness...almost chocolate and even coffee but very faint. Flavor has chocolate, coffee, and roasty caramely notes. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty with notes of dry leaves and earthy bitterness.

Aroma: Brown sugar sweetness with hints of roasted malts. Appearance: Dark mahogany with tan head that dissipates quickly but leaves lots of lacing. Taste: Medium sweetness balanced by medium bitterness. Palate: Medium body, soft carbonation, slick watery texture, roasted finish. Overall: Nice, soft beer with a mellow, roasted flavor. Perfect beer to curl up by the fire with.

Very good brown ale. A little on the sweet side with hints of chocolate, carmel and nut. Had this on tap at Victory.

On cask at Victory. Nice color. Good dry aroma and flavor. Very nutty and complex. This is a northern brown ale. Apparently so is Newcastle. Having them back to back, I donít think I could tell. Maybe itís just really great warm on cask, but I think people are shooting a bit low.

JAXSON (527) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours a rich caramel brown. Nose is roasted nuts and coffee beans. Mouth is dry, yet full profile, lots of roasted coffee beans, cashews, a light leafy hop. Medium body. Tried this next to Victory Village which was interesting, this has more roasted malts but less upfront coffee.

Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear red-brown color with a medium creamy off-white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, raisin. The taste is toasted malts, chocolate, nuts, herbal hops. Medium bodied, quite drinkable. Nice beer.

Shag (2598) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2005
A dark copper apperance with little head. The aroma was mainly caramel. The flavor was very nutty with some caramel and chocolate notes. The palate was a bit thin but it wasnt too bad for a brown ale.

Goodgrief (1782) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 5, 2007
The brown ales are my favorite beer type, so maybe Iím overly harsh. It wasnít a bad beer, smallish head but nice lacing, nice appearance...but lacked a little in the taste department. I definitely didnít detect much of the "nutty or caramel" taste that others have noted. Good, but unremarkable. The other 3 people in my party really liked it alot, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

On the second day of Christmas. Pours chestnut brown with a tan head. Aroma is nutty, caramel and hints of chocolate. Taste is sweet with some very light bitters. Medium bodied with a smooth texture.
