Brown in color with a thin white head that stays. An almost astringent nutty aroma? Like burnt wood. An average nutty, roasty flavor. They did a great job on getting that "english ale" flavor in there. It’s also watery, like many english ales. A good beer. Definitely not insulting to the palate. antzman (325) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with a large tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was a bit malty with hints of nuts. The flavor is smooth, with bits of toffee, malts and a light hop finish. Decent version of a brown ale. Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2009
On tap at The Beer Engine Lakewood, OH. Pours a medium ruby red, almost no head and weak lace. Slightly watered down raspberry/tangerine taste with a thin mouth feel. Not an outstanding nut brown but it’ll do. Odde (308) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2010
sticky, bitter and a little thick. the hops don’t bode well with the rest of what’s going on. uninspiring. burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2004
The aroma was nutty and VERY pleasant. The light brown body supported a thick, tan head. The flavor was an exciting cacophany of nutty goodness.

Here’s my take: creamy, buttery, and surprisingly a mellow nut plavor, on the back palate, there is a lingering and faint amaretto feel. there’s almost a pudding feel to the ale, perhaps caramel. I’ve sampled a few of the BBC brews thus far, and this places second only to the Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout. I liken the aroma and back palate flavor to that of some of the He’Brew brews. The head is thick and almost khaki. I definitely recommend this beer, as the BBC definitely has found a winner here. it’s not exceptional, but for BBC it is definitely above average. While the hops are noticable, i still think theat if there were a bit more bitterness and hops complexity to it, i wouldn’t complain, but nonetheless it is a good brew. lumpsowers (288) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2009
Dark copper pour, low head, some lacing. Sour grainy aroma. Low carb, woody caramel flavor, with a sickingly sweet taste. Some phlegmy in the throat. A bit of nut, and a low sour artificial flavor, somewhat unpleasant, but doesn’t destroy the beer. Decent.

Pours a clear amber color with minimal head. Aroma is very malty with notes of caramel and yeast. Flavor is an initial clean matly bitterness with a minimal flavor finish. Mouthfeel is average carbonation is good. Overall a decent beer. Stellaaaa (270) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Pours a rich copper with a thick white head. It has a fruity, slightly malty aroma. The taste is of grape nuts/wheat berries and a slightly sweet maltiness. The mouthfeel is pretty watery, which is a little detracting. Speedle (266) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 3, 2007
huge tan head....slight withered wood aroma....some roasted malt...watery mouthfeel...nutty taste with a creamy finish...mediocre brown
