rauchbier (3882) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2006
Bottle, DBF 2005. Chestnut, thin off white head and moderate condition. Sweet caramel aromas, gentle toffee and caramel in the mouth with a balancing bitterness that lingers into the finish with a touch of roasted barley also making it through.

This is a good beer. Great depth and taste for a brown ale. Lots of chocolate, nuts, and a subtle hoppiness on the finish that lingers nicely. JonnyC22 (164) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 19, 2006
Dark brown, awesome immediate chocolate impression. Great carbonation. More hoppy than most browns. RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Pours a deep, dark brown in color with a light brown head. Aroma is kind of brown, too ... or at least similar to other brown ales I’ve had: a soft maltiness with touches of caramel. Flavor is slightly darker than most browns ... dark, sweet malt wih a lightly dry hop finish. Very pleasant overall. mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby-copper body with a medium-sized soapy brown head with sparse lacing. Sweet malty aroma - cookie dough, caramel, potpourri spices (mint), and toast. Creamy, soapy body with mild/subtle flavours. Caramel and bread but somewhat medicinal nearing the finish. Noticeable sharp carbonation.
Grovlam (4222) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2006
Bottle. Brown and clear like colour a sparkling look. Initial appearance of head was medium. Aroma was like the Brooklyn Lager and IPA very hop flowery and spicy, yeast in the sniff. Some notes of malty caramel and roasted notes can also be felt. It has some dry catachrestical but not as much as the other two that we could compare it with. Favour was light bitter-sweet. Medium bodied with a light bitter sweet finish. In some ways more balanced between the bitter and sweet notes then the Lager and IPA. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2006
(Bottle, BB 02/07) Pours a mahogany body with a moderate beige head. Aroma of cola, toastiness, and caramel. Flavor of nuts, dark malt, caramel, and toastiness. An easy drinker. DrewTaylor (154) - Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2006
Dark brown with a deep red hue. Darker than some of the other brown ales from the area. Lots of hops lead to a strong tasting ale with lots of flavor. Good Beer. tmad (93) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2006
Dark brown with a dark red tint, medium beige head. Nice chocolate, coffee malt flavor, this is what you would expect from a Brown Ale. Very good beer. cab (866) - DENMARK - NOV 25, 2006
