Pours a nice copper brown from the bottle with a thick tan head and good lacing. Aroma is sweet and roasted malts, with a bit of alcohol. Taste is the sweet caramel and nut malts with a slightly hoppy finish. Well balanced and clean; nice american brown ale, similar to a dutch. Palme (4812) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2012
From 0.355l bottle @ Ølfestival København 2012 . Pours a light cloudy nutty-brown body with a small sidesticking beige head that’s quickly fading. The aroma has some butterscotch and sweetness from malts with a hint of both dark fruits and chocolate paper. It’s average carbonated and it has a oily to sticky sticky texture in the mouth. The flavor has lots of caramel - almost burned caramel actually - with nuts and some branches. There is also a light mild metallic tone in the background that’s a bit confusing for the old buds. Still, II fond this to be a tasty brown ale. 10.05.2012 RedSox2004 (1951) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Hazy redish amber brown with a nice beige head and sticky lace. Strong caramel malt aroma with hints of figs, raisins and nuts. Malt sweetness up front, with chocolate and ripe fruit in the middle, and a slight hops kick in the back. Medium body, minimal carbonation, slightly sticky on the palate, and a pleasant finish that features the caramel malt sweetness.

Bottle from Alexander Wines, Coventry. Dark ruby pour with a tidy yellow-beige head. Enticing, sweet, milk chocolate coated vanilla and fig aroma identical to that untraceable sake I’ve got in the fridge. Slick and malty with a satisfying, layered sweetness hinting at Allsorts, muscovado, black cherry and fig. Maybe a trace of floral hop- after you’ve been on the extreme chilli houmous, at least. Proper brown ale, no doubt.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 I enjoyed this. The pour was a nice dark mahogany color that foamed nicely, yet thinly laced. A sweet oak and hint of molasses aroma. Great bold taste, similar to Brooklyn but a little too thin on the palate. Overall it is one I will drink many more times. Better than Bells! Borup (14982) - Albertslund, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2012
