Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Interesting dark amber and quite translucent color for a brown ale. The aroma is rather disappointing with some slightly metallic notes with grassy hops. Much more reminiscent of an amber ale than a brown. Flavor is mild, somewhat sweet and nutty. Hop finish is try and refreshing.

3.6
kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2007
A very tasty medium bodied ale that poured to a medium brown color with decent carbonation and an off-white head that left okay lacing. The nose was a very pleasant roasted nutty malt, and the flavor followed suit. Although only 5% in alcohol, this left a sweet, tasty, somewhat warming finish.

3.4
cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Dark brown with slight head. Nutty aromas, burnt chocolate, caramel, light vanilla scents as well. Nutty flavors persist, but are met by a balancing hops brigade, which evens out the brew nicely. There are sour fruit notes developing towards the finish and they dominate over the roasted mocha and coffee flavors.

3.2
VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Clear brown body with a beige head. Malty aroma with a light nuttiness, light caramel, and some grain. Medium sweet malt flavor with a little caramel, lightly earthy, and faint nut. Aftertaste is sweet malt and a bit of roast malt.

3.1
Quevillon (3094) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2007
Bouteille de 22 oz, procuré à J. H. Butterfield’s (Bar Harbor, Maine). Brune caramel foncée, peu de collet. Arome de malte caramelisé et de fruts sûrettes simple. Goût faible de noix malté, avec un peu de petits fruits et de caramel.

2.4
argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 16, 2007
(22oz bottle) Hazy copper/brown body with large fluffy beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, nut, some metallic. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some chocolate, nut/salt, light roast, sourness, faint earthy. Light-medium body, light acidity.

3.4
MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Thanks to mkgrenwel for the bomber. Clear brown with a large head. Aroma of grains and caramel with a bit of dust. Flavor was a little thin; caramel, some chocolate, grains and nuts. Fairly good taste, but the texture is just too thin.

2.5
Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Tried this one a couple of times - most recently was a 4 month old bottle that had been kept in a dark fridge - surprisingly oxydated. Sweet bready malts, slight nuttiness, hops both times had a metal taste to them. Maybe the bottles just don’t hold up well.

3.1
dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Ruby in color with a large off white head. Sweet and malty with a light hint of grainy breadiness.
