Decent brown pour w/ a thin tan head & some lacing. The aroma is quite nice - a bit of a hazlenut thing going on. The flavor doesn’t really live up to the aroma but this is a solid brown that I would drink again!

Bottle. Pours dark brown white head. Nose/taste of grape, oxidized fruit, dark fruit and cardboard caramel - medium body. Maybe the bottle was too old?

Malty nut aroma. Brown body with a reddish hue. No head. Sweet thick malt spice taste. Leaves a roasted spice malt in the finish. Hints of a dark raisin.

GIJOE (1220) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Pours dark brown with a reddish glow in the light. A foamy, beige head fades to a ring in a minute or two. Moderate lacing. Nose is malty with hints of cola. Taste is sweet, but the hop comes through nicely. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Nice brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Big bottle from Mike. Aroma of chocolate bar and malts. Pours brown and gritty with a nice medium white head. Taste is chocolate, malt, malt, and more malt. This is a deliciously frothy malt bomb of a brown ale. Really enjoyed this one.

3.2
nuplastikk (6312) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Filtered ruby amber-copper color. Thin, soda-like head. The aroma is mildly nutty, with lot of caramel sweetness. Leaning into what I’d guess it amber malt a little too much..there are cherry vanilla tones that I don’t really want or expect from the style..but as I sip, it grows on me. It is balanced, with a nice spicy hop accent. Not really nailing it, but an enjoyable beer, sort of antiquated.
