DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2015
12oz bottle, thanks to shrubber85/phaleslu. Dated 12/10/2015. Red / brown color, with lots of yeasty chunks in the body. Thin off-white head. Fades to a minimal ring. Dark fruit up front. Caramel malt, very mild nuttiness. Touch of papery oxidization. Touch of chocolate. Moderate bitter taste, lighter to moderate sweet. Bit of a bite to it. Just a touch of tart. Mild drying finish. Medium-plus body. Lighter carbonation. Hint of coffee comes out later. Seems a little rough and off though. Didnt finish.

Patrickctenchi (6477) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle: Pours slightly hazed mahogany with a creamy, light tan head. Caramel, chocolate, bark aroma. Creamy, nut and chocolate malt flavor. Roasty, a little oily, maybe some cola notes. Smooth, simple, straightforward...... Really pleasant and rich....nice.

shrubber85 (11224) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle. Nutty chocolate malt and herbal hay aroma. Medium brown with moderate tan head. Mildly sweet nutty chocolate malt and mildly bitter herbal quinine/hay flavor. Okay but a bit harsh.

vikingguy (1096) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Reddish brown with pillowy head. Dark fruits on the nose. Taste- toasty malt, honey, nutty and caramel. Mellow and lightly hopped. Not bad but this serves to remind me why I don't drink brown ales much anymore. Just kind of boring but again, a decent decent brown ale if you're in to them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with a finger of foamy, tan head. Nose is bready with slight fruity notes and a hint of caramel. Taste is slightly bitter on a malty-sweet backbone. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I thought this was a little hoppy for the style. Still an easy drinker though

Smooth and a bit creamy/thick feeling. Lack of any real aroma. Molases notes are really awesome. I woulf rank below, but near to, New Castle.

felsenpils (170) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours a dark brown with a good deal of yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Good shelf life on this beer. The aroma is clean with some dark roasted notes. The flavor is a typical American micro ale with a thick mouthfeel due to the use of a high percentage of caramel malts. All in all pretty good.
