on tap at brewdog birmingham. great concept here and something i beleive they should continue trying. on this occassion its just a bit underwhelming. pours dark brown, smells of dirty hops and fresh bread. taste is smooth if a little thin. like a hazlenut latte. overall drinkable and would have again but i think the people could have chosen something better.

A very nice brown ale. Pours DARK brown with a tan head that vanishes fairly quickly. jamestulloch (4330) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Aroma: Brown sugar, treacle and chocolate.
Tide (4361) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2013
Appearance: Dark brown body with a faint beige head, no visible carbonation and no lacing.
Taste: Sugary, malty flavour. Wood and treacle in there too.
Palate: Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation.
Overall: I’m not a huge fan of this one. Very sweet and full of roasted flavours.

Bottle from Dunnottar Wines, Stonehaven. It pours deep mahogany brown with a thick beige head. The nose is wood, earth, chocolate, leather, nut, coffee, touch of soy sauce and toast. The taste is wood, earth, caramel, burnt toast, faint resin, touch of alcohol, nut, cocoa and coffee with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Decent malty brown ale. Not much else to say really!

Pours pretty much black with low tan head. Aroma of chocolate, brown sugar, light smoke, roasted malt. Taste is initial sweet, almost like milk chocolate before the bitterness kicks in. Dark chocolate, coffee, and actually some vanilla. Body is medium, creamy, with soft carbonation.

Bottle split with JF at his gaff - the 60+ insect bites tasting, thanks to he, 09/06/13.
Very dark mahogony brown with reddish hues in the light, medium tan head.
Nose is dark malt, light roast, caramel, hazlenut.
Taste comprises toffee fudge, nutty tones, brown sugars.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light roast in the finish.
Ok drinkable brown affair but lacks depth for a 7.5% beer.
