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 (815) - 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.

Caramel malt, chocolate, brown sugar.....a little booze in the flavour.
Heavy, almost sticky body....really rich....and good.
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 (3795) - 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 (3302) - 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 (11666) - 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.
