3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer is a very dark brown with a 1" head of off white foam and has some nice lacing.
Lots of sweet malt and cocoa in the smell, which I’m digging.
Same for the taste...definitely English style with very little bitterness and nice levels of malt and cocoa, slight nuttiness.
Medium body goes well with a lightish carbonation.
This is a very good Brown Ale served from my Growler.
Can. Tastes like caramel and toffee, nutty, cocoa, sweet doughy malt, and mild hops. nuplastikk (6476) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 29, 2017
12oz can. Kind of caramel forward, syrupy. Brown ales are subtle creatures, and this one misses the mark. Smells like extract, all around a cheap, homebrew feel to it. Drinkable and not off I suppose, but a pretty weak offering. szampapal (53) - POLAND - AUG 22, 2017
Wholemeal bread, kvass (bread drink) aroma.
Amber, red colour.
Sweet, low carbonated, little bit sour aftertaste. Beige head, nice lacing.

Pours chestnut brown from the can. Off white head. Aroma of dusty fruit, cereal, weak floral notes. Taste lightly sweet, a touch sour. Feels like a brown that’s gone off. Medium body. Finishes lightly sour. Not impressed.

Sample from can at the Omaha Beer Fest 2017. Poured light brown with an off white head. Aroma was roasted malt, nut. Taste was sweet, toasted malt, nutty. chinchill (5343) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2017
12 oz can in Idaho. HuskerTan (2403) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Pours brown but so dark as to be opaque in the glass. Decent bone colored head.
Appealing aroma with hints of coffee, roasted nuts and caramel. The flavor also has these traits, as well as hints of dark chocolate, with the roasted nut aspect particularly noteworthy.
Smooth, medium-full mouthfeel with near medium carbonation.
Can. tmoreau (4678) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2017
A- Malty, nutty, subtle caramel.
A- Brown color, dark liquid, beige head.
T- Cocoa, malty, mild burnt caramel, slightly earthy, slightly nutty.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, nutty finish.
O- Decent brown. No iron taste or thin bodied like so many others. Fairly strong nutty flavor and arom with lots of dry cocoa.
Shared 12 oz. cans poured to snifters showing a clear, mahogany brown, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan froth, and foamy spots of lacing. The nose was slight toast, with touches of caramel, taffy, & cocoa. The taste was similar, light to medium bodied, with a little spritz to the average carbonation, light tanginess, and subtle bitterness. Not altogether exciting, but decently sessionable.
