Pours a dark brown with a quick dissipating head. Aroma of chocolate and molasses. Taste of burnt coffee with a strong hoppiness. Nice bittering at the end. Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 6, 2013
This is a nice malty brown ale that has great flavor and a dry finish. I have had it in bottles a few times and on tap once and I really like it. It is mild like a bitter and made in an English style. elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 15, 2006
12oz bottle: Surprisingly good brown ale here, thick lightly brown head and deep dark body. Plenty of thickness in the aroma and flavor departments, lots of roasted malty chocolatey goodness. A very tasty brown ale that I would drink more than regularly if given the chance. jimmyh221 (157) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2006
It had a dark brown color with a spare head. However, the lacing was excellent. It had a nice chocolate taste that was very balanced. loubar (157) - Los Gatos, California, USA - MAR 23, 2015
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods. Nose is bland, a little yeast and not much else. Taste of toasted malts with hints of caramel and chocolate. Smooth with mild carbonation. Bready malt aftertaste with little bitterness. Mildly sweet which makes it session-able. Over all, an enjoyable brown ale.

dark brown pour with a nice tan head, smells of roasted nuts, chocolate, and a slight malty aroma, slightly bitter taste with a strong nut flavor with hints of malt and chocolate as well as a slight smokiness, medium body...one of my favorite browns STL_Drew (153) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 11, 2012

Draft at Old Chicago on 8/9/06. Clear. Really dark brown. Nice amber, red hues when held to the light. Thin 1 cm. light tan head. Aroma - Avg. strength - roasty, smokey, almost some coffee. Flavor - Fairly high up front bitterness. Well balanced, towards malty. Really smokey and roasty malt flavors. Fairly crisp finish. Palate - medium, good carb. Overall - really good beer - You have to be in the mood for the malty, smokey flavor, but if you are it’s good. Could be a tad sweeter, but other than that I like it.

Brown colour with whit head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The flavor is nice malty with some complex nut and a bit of raisin and caramel going on in the background. The aftertaste is full and short.
