YOU NEED TO LET THIS BEER WARM UP SOME! 22oz bottle. This beer pours like a brown should. Not much head. When cold, it smells of rum, way more than it tastes of it. When it warms up, the rum blends nicely with the Brown Ale aroma. Looks like any other Brown Ale, with less carbonation. The taste starts out a mellow rum flavor that unfolds into the brown flavor. Finishes a little dry, prolly the alcohol doing that. The palate is starts out dry and fizzy. The aftertaste is very rummy. Overall, this beer is much different cold than warm. I didnít really find it that good before it warmed up some. I am going to try and find another bottle of this to age, but remember...LET IT WARM UP for the best flavor and aroma.

LtDan (1796) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Appearance: Pours a dark iced tea brown with a swirly white film a top.

Aroma: Fruity floral tea, sugar, bubble gum.

Taste: Cola, brown sugar, licorice. Mild hop bitterness. No nuttiness or traditional brown ale notes. Didnít find anything particularly boozy about the taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied fizzy.

Overall: Well above average, and exceeded my expectations for a Brown Ale. Widmer along with Karl Strauss try not to go too extreme with their barrel aging, but I would like them to take a chance and make something with some more barrel character, meaning keep the juice in the barrels longer.

You can really taste the molasses and rum on the finish despite the front being a smooth brown ale flavor. Good beer but not amazing

22oz bottle in an English pint. Pours brown with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel and a little chocolate from the malts, rum, molasses, and floral hops. Flavor a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

22oz bomber. Pours with medium head. Sweet aroma. Slightly alcoholic with molasses background. Tastes like black run and English brown ale. Some diacetyl present but acceptable for the style. Finishes with alcohol warmth and maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright red/brown pour with a short tan head. Pretty spicy on the nose with licorice and toffee. Tastes a lot like Christmas: dates and spice. Finishes really quickly.

Fatehunter (1400) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Poured a finger of tan head on a dark brown body. Looks great. The aroma is wonderful: molasses, dark chocolate, coffee and brown sugar. The taste starts off lighter: vanilla and nuts. Then moves to a sweet profile: brown sugar, malty and a black licorice and alcohol heat finish. The texture is a little sticky with low carbonation. Itís a great beer and interesting... but at quite a price.

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Draft at Grumpyís downtown. Pretty faint aroma. Need to breathe in deeply to get anything. Dark, hazy amber with yellowish light tan head. Nice lace. Initial mouthfeel is hot. But it quickly mellows into a caramelly sweet flavor brought on by the oak and palm sugar. A really nice brew.

Bottle was a gusher. Pours a hazy brown with fluffy tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of sweet molasses, caramel, toffee, toasted barley, and a hint of booze. Taste follows, but no real booze burn at all. Nice, nothing awesome, but solid.
