12 ounce bottle from Steve’s (University Avenue) in Madison, WI, served a little colder than it should be in a Zywiec glass. Deep, translucent (almost opaque) chestnut color with a frothy, pale beige head that decays slowly and laces heavily...sugary-sweet nose - brown sugar and honey, faint touch of nuts (pecans) and a subdued floral motif...body is sweet also though not disgustingly so, and that nutty oiliness shows up in just the right strength, with just a slight dryness and alcohol presence towards the finish...very full, almost syrupy, decadent mouthfeel, light carbonation. Can’t remember the last time I had a brown ale this good - maybe they all should be 8%? Anyway, well done. Carlisle (882) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Draft at the Milwaukee brewpub. Pours clear brown with minimal tan head and lacing. Caramel malt upfront with a somewhat peppery finish with a slight touch of alcohol. Thinner body than expected.

Taste: Rich, malty, roasted beans, brown sugar, caramel notes. Same with the nose. Dark brown in color, clear, with a smaller head and lace. Medium body and smooth. Patrickctenchi (6832) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Cola-coloured, with a small beige head.
Brown sugar, earthy caramel malt scent.
Caramel malt, chocolate, brown sugar.....a little booze in the flavour.
Heavy, almost sticky body....really rich....and good. emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Pours deep brown, tan head. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, malt, and roasted nuts. Taste is very nutty, caramel and sugar. Very good.

On tap at a Madison beer fest. Too many beers to take the time to type out a description. BrewMstr (194) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Draft at milwaukee location. Mild aroma and reddish brown color. The malt comes through along with a alcohol punch, though not hot. A very solid, high octane drink! shigadeyo (3856) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2015
8/19/2015: This is quite good, but sweet and malty more than anything else. It’s a good sipper that is flavorful with notes of caramel and brown sugar, is thick on the tongue, and smooth going down with no alcohol presence shown. I like it, but thought that the Ale Asylym HuMMMane had way for character and complexity. madvike (3308) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle - Dark brown pour with a foamy tan head. Nose is pretty boozy, with a dry dark bread maltiness and a sugary sweetness. Taste is the same--dry dark bread with a sweet finish. Light burnt bitterness on the finish with some boozy notes. Slick and foamy body. Meh. shrubber85 (11771) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle. Alcohol, brown sugar, malt, and straw aroma. Chestnut brown with small head. Sweet nutty brown sugar, caramel malt, and moderately bitter herbal hay/alcohol flavor. Nice body. A bit boozy but pretty nice.
