Ferris (15475) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2013
Draft - Brown sugar and malts. Muddy brown with a thin head. Nice simple malty brown beer. Back to basics. Decent brown with a bit of bite.

3.5
bhensonb (15251) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Aroma is not typical. It’s smooth roasted caramel with grassy or floral hop. Very dark garnet color with a smeary white film for head. Full bodied with mild and creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted caramel with floral sort of hop. It’s a bit darkly bready, but not overly sweet. Sort of an overachieving Newcastle Brown. Character it’s got. The finish is much as the beginning. This ale is arguably in a class by itself.

Bottle sample at a beer festival in kibbutz Maabarot, May ’08. Clear brown with a beige head. Lots of hops in the aroma with some caramelly malt notes and some nuts. Sweet malty flavor with a nice nutty character, some fruitiness and a bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied.

3.9
djd07 (14655) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very dark amber color with a small off white head that diminishes very quickly to nothing. The aroma is rich malt with chocolate, and roasted nut. The taste is similar to the aroma with a rich roasted malt with a lot of coffee flavor. Easy to drink and a very good brown ale from Brooklyn.
