AleRider78 (897) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2016
On tap at Glebe Brewpub. Pours an average size brownish head, a bit foamy and goes away after a little bit. Has a dark brown appearance with red hues. Weak lacing. Aromas of coffee and dark roasted malts. Flavours of mocha and some coffee, a bit of chocolate. Also a bit smokey as well. Hints of caramel. Somewhat bitter on the palate but not too offensive. Still goes down pretty easy.

gildnerk (198) - Dsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 29, 2014
Rather normal brown ale. Dark brown colour with a decent off-white head. Malt and barley aromas with some hops in the background. Rather nutty, malty taste with very little bitter, some chocolate sweetness. Little aftertaste. Low carbonation and a somewhat thin body. OK.

solidfunk (8278) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Very pedestrian brown ale here. Pours a syrupy looking brown aroma of barley, nothing else. Faint nip of hops in finish but this tastes more like an RAN than a brown. Average carbonation. Tap at brewpub.

BreWedge (512) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
On tap @ Clocktower Ottawa. Pours a virtual opaque brown with a mid-size, creamy, mocha head. Aromas are nuts, wood, and caramel. Tastes are coffee, semi-sweet chocolate,and roasty malt. Medium body, good carbonation, and a medium bitter finish. This beer may be a little on the robust side for a typical brown ale but I believe the rate-bee rians (rate-beerites?) have sold this beer a little short. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Roast chocolate, nut, rasing and flowery smell. Medium brown with a little red hints with a thin lasting white lacing head. Light thin body witha little tingle - Goes down very smooth. Bitter ash start, grapefuit, nut dry malt with a bitter clean finish. Not bad. Their porter is better.
