This was a solid beer. And the color was amazing (reddish brown). I will admit I was anxious about it being a brown ale, but the taste was so malty and delicious, I got over my misconceptions and superstitions and just enjoyed the flavor of NYC. SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2005

Pours medium dark brown. Malty Aroma. Small off white head. I picked up a fruity notes, and carmal notes from this brew, Smooth, easy finish no aftertaste at first. Bitter toward end. Very drinkable.
Jax Beer and Wine - Atlanta, Ga - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper with a thin, but persistent white head. Faint, but fresh toffee aroma. Flavor is slightly subdued with hints of coffee and chocolate and a slight caramel back end. Pick up some furity notes in the aftertaste. Decently thick mouthfeel. A decent brown ale.

One of my B-day beers. Very dark with a tan head. Way too hoppy for my taste. Way too bitter also.

Almost dirt brown in color with a good light tan head. Good aroma with a slight fruit hint. Pretty bitter brew with a bitter finish on the palate Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Pours a dark brown with beige head. Aroma of sweet but a little bland. Flavor is chocolate, smoke. Roasty. Acidic aftertaste. Finish slightly sweet, slightly bitter. NachlamSie (3600) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2005
bottle. Pours a rich, deep brown with a full lasting head. There’s a sweet yeasty aroma with some hops. The flavor is fairly robust for a brown with a good spicy character and a small chocolate roast. Quite a tasty brown, indeed. Sigmund (8031) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2005
355 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. Deep brown colour, large light tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark and dried fruits and caramel, hints of chocolate, tobacco, oak and leather. Nice malty and nutty flavour with some caramel but not too sweet, well balanced with sufficient hops, hints of spices. Easy drinking, refreshing, decent mouthfeel. Moreish. leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2005
Brownish color with notes of red and a small tan head. Malt, caramel, and roasted nut aroma. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors of caramel, chocolate, nuts, and malt. Followed by a gentle hop finish. Easy drinking.
