Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2006
1 pint draught, Stout NYC. Small head, but one that clings to the glass leaving a nice lace around the glass. Sweet malty toasted aroma. Mellow roasted flavours. Aftertaste is slightly dry from hops and a litlle roasted and nutty malts.

OlDirtyBrewer (11) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Pours a dark brown with a small head. Aroma is fruity with a slight vanilla touch and sweet malt. Flavor is the same and the hops jusr hang out quietly in the background. Body is middle of the road with a slight fizziness and carries over to the aftertaste. Mine was a bottle but I prefer the draft version. Il take this over Newcastle any day.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2006
On tap: Aroma is nutty with some chocolate and light citrus hops. Dark amber with a small white head. Chocolate, caramel, and roasted nuts up front with a light citrus hopped finish. Not a brown ale fan, but this was rather tastey.

jrob21 (3549) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Looks good and dark. Smells malty and strong. Tastes like roasted and chocolate barley but it just fades into nothingness. The taste starts so well and finishes so weak. As for the style, I like this beer the best. Maybe it is the style that I am not so thrilled about.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Pours a medium dark amber color. Aromas of caramel, floral, and maybe a hint of fruit. Flavors of floral, sweet malts, and some mild hop bitterness towards the end.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 out of the bottle pours a beautiful cherry wood hue, but unfortunately is not complimented by as nice a head. a fizzy bubbly cream-tan head that is minimal to none. first impressions are that it tasted WEAK and that I expected more. Sour cherries, plum and butternut. Has a viscous, greasy palate and texture that is uncomfortable and gross. Aftertaste is like a dirty, yucky nut.

Christian (13124) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Red brown, with a disappearing tan head. Fruity aroma, citrus hops with plum and port. Sweet malty flavour with some chocolate and coffee, and plenty of hop flavour and bitterness. Gave me a rather Belgian impression.

omhper (24322) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Cask conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark brown. Evident roasty malt aroma. Medium sweet with rounded mouthfeel and firm malt character. Its dominated by the roasty malt, but there are hints of licorice and perfumy hops as well. Medium bitterness.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 3, 2006
In all fairness to the fine folk at Brooklyn Brewery; this bottle was designated to be best enjoyed on or before 11/05. I would love to try a fresh sample, but Ive got to work with what Ive got. Splendid nose of dried fruit and flowers; however, it drops off quickly as the brew breathes. The brew pours a clear garnet. The frothy bone head is mostly diminishing with fair lace. It is the LOUDEST head Ive ever encountered, sounding like a bowl of rice crispies. Im not making that up. This brew is very well balanced if not terribly complex, and would make a very noble session offering. The light fizzy body is very dry.

(DAgostinos, NYC) Smooth beer. Slight wooden flavor with a coffee aftertaste. If it werent for the coffee, Id really like it.
