Pours rich medium brown, with thin tan head. Malty, toasty, spicy aroma. Taste cocoa malts, some spicy hops. Dorkenstein (557) - - OCT 22, 2015
Nice aromas of bready malts, caramel, toffee, some plum/fig. Taste is toast, toffee and caramel. Some astrigencey and bitterness in the finish. Msdrbeat (780) - East Lansing, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Nice and drinkable. From a can. Not overly nutty which is just great for me.

Really nice winter ale. Not sure how brown I consider it but still damn good. Malty and nutty with a slightly bitter finish. Great stuff as always from Bells.

Hazy deep mahogany amber with a thin light beige cap. Nutty and semiearthy sweet nose. Smooth autumnal flavors on the palate with maple leaves, brown malt, hazelnuts and almonds, gentle earthy chocolate, and a touch of toasted biscuit. Really nice brown, admittedly. Could do with more chocolate but I love the nuttiness so much I’m willing to forgive it. jcnielsen (3412) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with white head. Nutty, malty, toast aromas. Malty, roasty, nutty, toffee flavors. One of the best brown ales I’ve had in a long time. TH28 (464) - - OCT 2, 2015
12os bottle. 8/21/15 package date (41 days old). Appearance: Brown with reddish tint, murky, with a thick mousse like tan head with great lacing. Head holds for a long time.
Aroma: Toast, caramel, chocolate, with a hint of toast and resinous hops. Hop/malt combination gives off some caramelized pepper aromas.
Taste: Rich toasted bread, with some roasted chocolate and hints of licorice. Moderately strong bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light body, almost thin, with a moderate carbonation.
Finish: Malty toast and roasted flavors linger. Malt forward.
Overall: Amazing appearance with the mousse foam head that never dissipates, and a really nice complex aroma. Taste is on point, mouthfeel a bit thin.

Pours a rich copper color with a slight sweet malt aroma. Taste is clean, smooth, easy drinking. Flavors of light caramel, toast, a bready aftertaste that lingers on the palate. A minimal bitter aftertaste, felt I had to really concentrate to discern it.
