jamestulloch (3695) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2017
Can from Salt Horse. Deep brown body with a medium beige head. Steady carbonation. Very faint lacing. Aroma of coffee, nuts and burnt sugar. Flavour of earth, caramel and raisins. Thin to medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Simple and tasty. I think a boozier version of this would be sublime.

TeijoA (11) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2017
"Maduro", Spanish for "mature". Canned 23.9.2016, so not too mature. Only very little off-white head on the edges of the teku. Colour is opaque dark brown, almost black. Smell is mostly dark chocolate, coffee and malts. Surprisingly thin body with basically no hop presence. Not much taste, undefinable sweetness, malts, possibly a touch of coffee. Not my type of brown ale.

nearbeer (5081) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 5, 2017
12 oz. canned 12/22/2016. aroma of cocoa, ash, toffee, mild coffee and orange zest. Dark brown body has a thin film of cream. Tastes of cocoa. caramel, toasted walnut, ash, coffee and lightly tart berry. Light-medium body has an annoying explosive carbonation, but otherwise this is a nice one.

hershiser2 (2517) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2016
$1.99 can from Total Wine, West Richmond. Pours cola-colored brown with a soft beige to tan head. Aroma is lightly smoky, definite chocolates, and some coffee. Flavor is incredibly smooth. Lightly sweet hazelnut, light milk chocolate, hints of creamy coffee, perhaps vanilla ice cream buried deep down. Wow. For a brown this is quite complex without being pretentious.

johndoughty (5176) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2016

jjsint (2579) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2016
Can at the Columbia, Ybor City. Deep chocolate fudge brown with a bit of translucency. Large khaki head. Chocolate malt aroma with a metallic note and some caramel/toffee. Sweet taste with an earthy hop backdrop, supplying a medium to long bittersweet finish. Notes of cherry cola and chocolate in the aftertaste. Decent enough brown ale.

BlazerT (745) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Can. Sensoric. Deep brown with moderate, dirty white, semi-thick head. Poor head retention and lacing. Moderate malty aroma (caramel, bread, toffee), lightly roasted (chocolate), moderate toffee notes and light to moderate tobacco and woody accents. Lightly fruity. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately bitter, long and constant. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, finish is lightly bitter, semi-dry, astringent and woody. Summary: Brown ale is not very interesting, neither knocking down beer style, but this one is quite interesting. Rather simple in aroma and flavors, but everything is perfectly paired and balanced. The slightly woody and tobacco accents makes this more enjoyable. Podsumowanie: Niezłe Brown Ale, wyrżniające się ponad inne nutami tytoniu i beczki.
