Ruby red in color with a big, fluffy beige colored head. I really like the aroma of this brown ale. Aromas of roasted peanuts and a hint of chocolate encourage the user to quaff. Flavor is quite pleasent and seems to me to be a bit stoutish. Flavors include coffee, dark chocolate and some hoppiness. This exceeded my expectations significantly.

Nice tan head that disappears fast, brown reddish body. Quite heavy in the aroma, dominated by coffee and roasted malt. Flavor is mostly sweet with a little bitterness in the end. Notes of coffee, citrus and pilsner malt. A nice and easy drinkable beer without beeing outstanding!

Good brown ale that pours dark with decent head. Smells of roasted coffee. Toasted coffee/chocolate flavor evident, but quite subtle. A bit thin in the finish with a slightly metallic aftertaste.

Some kind of taste as the Amber brothe, but off course more malted. Nothing special though. A heavy beer in my opinion.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle] Pours a clear, reddish brown with a thick and creamy tan head. Faint aroma of watered down coffee and roasted malts. Slightly sweet taste with a nice roasty flavor and a good bitter finish. Good amount of carbonation on the palate and warms on the way down. Thanks to Warrior for this one.

Dark, opaque color. Little to no head, fades quicly. Smells sweet. Light, almost watery tasting. Finishes with a refreshing taste of malt and a trace of hops. Taste fades as quickly as the head

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Dark brown color,small tan head that lasted for a short time then faded to a small amount of lace.The aroma was malty and mildly hopped with maybe a slight fruit presence.The taste was much better then i expected.NIcely malty with a slight bitter sweet side and a mild amount of hops coming through.Not a bad brew at all but i know there are better ones of the style out there.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 Deep color, decent head, widely accesable. Tasted on draft and in bottle, farily inexpensive and really good. I really like this beer, and even though it is a bit better than Newcastle, it is much cheaper most of the time.

Dark color, full taste. Slightly smoky flavor. Complimented grilled bratwurst nicely.

3.5
Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2004
This deep red beer is topped by a thin light tan head. The nose is very chocolatey and somewhat earthy/yeasty (reminiscent of an English porter). In fact, the body is along the lines of an English porter, too- this has a nice chocolatey matrix, with yeast and tobacco notes as well. Has a somewhat acidic, tangy aftertaste. I agree with previous reviewers that this beer is very thin-bodied and needs a bit more "weight." However, I enjoy the flavor. This may be the bastard stepson of Fuller’s London Porter. I hear jeers and outrage- I’m not claiming this beer rivals Fuller’s, but it does have the same flavor characteristics.
