Beer5000 (6325) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Bottle @ Patricks. Dark reddish brown body with a moderate off-white head. Strong aroma of chocolate malt and nuts. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, fruity bitterness and nuts. Medium to strong body, nice aftertaste. Definitivly decent but not extraordinary, a bit plain in flavor.

bottle, thanks zvikar, medium stable dense head, crystal clear very deep red with brown taints, yeasty vanila aroma with some coffee and fudge creeping in, flavour of coffee and bread, with smoked notes, brown slightly burned sugar and a hint of dried fruits, medium pleasant bitterness, quite nice.

r464 (2350) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Brown with a humongous tannish head that foamed all over the place. Nutty, malty, smooth, and a bit sweet. Just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Nice and not too heavy.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - DEC 17, 2011
Very dark orange, dark brown in the glass. Some kind of autumn beer. Spiced, earthy, slightly some sourness. Not totally my thing but drinkeable.

Jow (3821) - New York, USA - DEC 17, 2011
On tap at brewery. Pours a wonderful deep brown. Tastes of toast, coffee, earth, and nuts. Rich texture and nice mouthfeel. Enough bitterness and malt to be interesting brown

BillKismet (3991) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Dark wood brown with adequate, but thinnish, lightly caramel brown head. Neutral oak woody aroma within the presence of softened brown malt. Again, the body is of a rather neutral oak woodiness, though there is some tannic bitterness as well. Brown malts provide nice backbone and flavor, but the experience is smooth and lacking any harsh roastiness. Dry oaky finish.

kabsetter (103) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2011
My least favorite from C.C. so far. But remains one of most popular. For me, it didnt have the flavor and subtle nuances of flavor I come to expect. Maybe the 5.5 abv made it seem weak as I been enjoying 9+ abvs this month. Failed to impress me.

hotstuff (5078) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Bottle purchased on Dec. 7, 2011, at Total Wine & More (Naples, FL). Pours a small semi-frothy, fizzy tan head that mostly diminished. Fair amount of lacing, opaque body and a reddish-brown hue. The aroma is malty, sweet, chocolate, roasty, and nutty. Ditto for the flavor along with some bitterness. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, a very tasty brown ale that is worth trying and a beer that I would definitely drink again.

olsvammel (6848) - rebro, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a hazy brown liquid with a small pale brown head. Milkchocolate on the nose. Malty taste with chocolate, not as strong as the smell. Nice brown ale with lots of milk chocolate.
