Medium red brown with a thin off white head. Raspberry, soft chocolate, malts, and graham crackers. Taste is moderately sweet, but fades to a dry flavor. Body is a little heavier, but the sharp carbonation offsets this. Really tasty, almost like dessert. bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint.
Rich, somewhat dark brown with an orange-red hue. Small off-white head forms with spotty lacing.
Milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Very nice malty smell overall.
Semi-sweet malt backbone of caramel, toffee, chocolate, dark fruit and molasses. A nice nut flavor helps cut the sweetness which turns slightly drying at the end.
Relatively low carbonation, medium smooth body, slight dry finish. Just a nice pub ale feel overall.
Both full flavored and easy drinking at the same time. One of the better English Brown Ales I have had.

This is a great brown ale. Nutty, chocolate taste with a hint of raspberry. Damn good brew. I have yet to be let down by a brau brother beer. MeadMe (1683) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2010
A: Pours a nice dark nutty brown with amber tones showing through. Nice tall tan head that dies to a big bubbly ring. Nice chunks of spotty lace left behind as this one is consumed.
S: Wonderful sweet malt aromas. Bold brown sugar and caramel. Nuts and toffee. Mild chocolate as well.
T: Now this is not an extreme beer lovers dream, what it is though is a real nice brown ale. Wonderful brown sugar sweetness. Notes of chocolate malt with wonderful roast. Lots of almond and pecans.
M: Medium in body, smooth, almost creamy.
D: Wonderful, tasty and damn drinkable. Did not even know this brewer existed. It’s a win for me, and I am usually not a fan of malty brews. mmmbeer (1429) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Guerde- thank you! Served in an old mug- poured a transparent brown with amber hue, medium and lively carbonation, no head. Aroma of malt (partially wheat?), butter, and notes of toffee and caramel- highly interesting. Hits the mouth with a high- medium body, very wide, malt is there 100%, nuts with cream come in the middle, finish is hearty, lingers, and nothing but pure delight. It may be the lack of beer lately, but this one, the last one from Guerde, was nothing short of awesome!

From a 12 oz bottle,Brown in color. Chocolate,Malt,Raspberry , Nutty notes.A Great Rasepberry Brown Ale RyanMM (416) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Pours a dark ruby-brown, little head to speak of. Aroma is heavy with nuts, fruit, and biscuity malt notes. Smooth, creamy, low on the carbonation but without coming across as flat. Nice sweet nuttiness up front, finishing with biscuit and chocolate notes, without much in the way of hop bittering. Pretty damn tasty and not at all what I’d expected from the bottle. My first from these brewers and certainly won’t be my last.
