Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Amber pour with a small head. Loads of caramel. Hot cross buns. A bit of cocoa. Taste is overly carbed. Loads of cola, nuts, caramel. Chocolate malt. Brown toast. Meidum body. Carbonation takes away from it a bit.

jjuf1853 (1241) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle - gift from family after their recent trip to Williamsburg. Pours a dark, muddy brown. Minimal tan head during the pour that quickly fades to nothing once it settles in the glass. Absolutely no lacing along the glass. Aroma has some roasty, nutty notes to it with just a touch of spice. Flavor is moderately sweet up front with some hop bitterness in the finish. Lingering roasted malt notes on the tail end. Nice, enjoyable brown ale.

hallinghansen (2085) - Odense S, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2014
Bought in the visitor venter in the old town in Williamsburg, VA. Hazy dark amber body with a small light brown head. Coffee, caramel, nuts, malt. I had no expectations to this beer, but it’s actually quite good.

kidobutai (400) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Poured from a bottle. A beer that smells better than it tastes. Short lived 1 finger Brown head, nice whiskey aroma, but the low ABV means it tastes watered down.

eaglefan538 (2902) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 21, 2014
Poured a dark color with tan colored head on draft. Aroma of chocolate and ash. Flavor followed maybe some licorice. Smokey too. Body was full and lightly carbonated some creaminess too. Nice porter / brown ale.

Braudog (5870) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Dark brown and fairly "regular" looking fro an American brown. Nutty and caramel all the way, but evenly spread, quite drinkable and unoffensive. Creamy mouthfeel. The finish is a bit shallow and a let down; otherwise a good beer. (#5341, 11/23/2013)

FROTHINGSLOSH (5039) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Mom brought this one back from a trip to Williamsburg. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with faint orange highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty molasses, nut and wood. The flavor was malty, dryish and a bit bitter with notes of wood, nut and pretzel. Medium length bitter finish with lingering wood an nut. Medium body. Meh.
