lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2006
Pours dark brown with barely any head. Aroma of molasses, chocolate, and slight nuttiness. Not as strong as I would prefer, but this has a nice roasty flavor that complements the aforementioned malts. Nice floral hoppiness in the finish. Extremely drinkable.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2006
somewhat odd for a brown, yet somewhat appetizing...aroma and flavor are of roasted notes, with definite pale characteristics (including strong floral hops)...alcohol present...decent palate

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2006
Fine creamy head, medium to start turning into a thin but heavy coating that left stickly lace all over the glass. Kind of a sweet chocolate like aroma that is balanced by some roast. One of the better browns I have had with a lot of complexity. Caramel and roast malt flavour, finish gently bittering hops. Well done, flavourful and complex.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2006
[Tap @ Sunset Grill 4/8/06] Looks great, smells kind of sweet and malty. Tastes great- complex malts, kind of woody tasting, but with just enough sweetness. Finishes with a nice light hop aroma. Excellent.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 5, 2006
Pours a reddish brown amber with an average off white bubbly head that left some lacing. Aroma of caramel, a light woodyness, coffee, chocolate and some nuts. Flavor was a mix of the same. Some roastiness going on as well. Hops there but subtle. Not a favorite style of mine, but this was well done.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Firkin on the bar at The Old Toad. Beer tastes better when poured via gravity. Body is stained wood - ruby light shines through if held to a lightg. Nose has chocolate, cherries, nicely hopped. Flavor is cocoa, cherry, caramel, some wood. Spicy finish with lots of fruit, a hint of alcohol. Great body - only slightly carbonated but still a pleasure.

I enjoyed this beer on hand pump which keep the carbonation down and the flavor and temp up. This added to the rich malty flavor as well as the subtle hop flavor.

henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2006
Bottle - Thin and simple malty nose; Ordinary body, quite thin with medium+ carbonation; Short, thin, bitter, acidy finish where a little very milky chocolate appears. Very pleasant, Yes, but incredible boring.
