bottle-deep mahogony look with a light off- white small bubble white head. very low carbonation especially for this style. hops abundent in the nose but with a huge amount of diacytl as well all over the aroma. lots of peanut buttery notes due to the combination of the malts and the diacytl issue. If this beer didnt have the diacytl, this would be one of the best brown ales out there. I like the fact that this beer is heavily hopped, making unique for such a bland style. Maybe i will have to get another sample sometime.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2006
12oz bottle pours brown with a creamy tan head that stays pretty well and laces down the glass. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, hops and sweet malts. Flavor is nice and blended well. Palate is smooth and silky and very drinkable outside the brewery!

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Bottle. Clear amber color. Off-white head, which dissipated, but not very quickly, and did not leave a clean surface, but left a foam layer on top, then a ring with lace. Aroma was a mixture of wheaty malt, fruity cherry, and spicy hops. Flavor was surprisingly fruity and dry, almost like wine (actually a lot like wine). It was a little sweet, with very slight chocolate tones in the background. Dry finish, medium body. I thought it would be more carbonated when I poured it, but it turned out to be very smooth. Creamy texture to the palate. Different flavor and experience than I expected. A nice ale.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 18, 2006
Expertly poured from the bottle at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London), light brown in colour with a large pillowy head. A subtle malty aroma with hints of cherries. More carbonated than expected, but again a pleaantly sweet maltiness comes through in the flavour with a rich mouthfeel that comes through smoothly. A different take on a brown ale and an enjoyable one for me.

blankboy (7580) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
Bottle. Pours a very dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing light-brown head. Wonderful aroma of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, nuts and hops -- definitely one the best smelling Browns Ive had the pleasure to smell. Flavour follows the aroma -- starts sweet and roasty and ends with a pleasant bitterness. Medium bodied. Wow, Brown Ales are far from being a favourite of mine but leave it to Brooklyn to make a really good one -- I love this Brewery.

HogTownHarry (6563) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Poured deep clear chestnut with an average foamy-rocky diminishing tan head. Nutty/chocolate sweetish roast malt in the aroma accompanied by a surprising amount of juicy citrus west coast hops - maybe the most appealing brown Ive ever sniffed, if not exactly true form. Taste is pretty much the same, sweet grapefruit competing with caramel and grape tartness - the sweet and bitter seem to fight it out all the way to a medium-long smooth finish. Mouthfeel is both astringent and lightly syrupy, moderately lively - this is an oddball but I really liked it - this brewery makes some top-notch easy drinking brews. Ill have this again.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - FEB 7, 2006
The aroma is of roasted and chocolate malts. The color is mahogony with a tan head and nice lacing. At first the flavor is bitter but quickly gives way to a caramel and chocolate. There is a bit of a roasted nut finish on the palate.
