08-JUN-2012, draft @Bishops Arms.
Brown, hazy, lasting lacing tan head.
Roasted with chocolate and hops.
Quite bitter and earthy hops.
Creamy and really nice brown ale in an American style. Though normally not my style, I like this. Rasmus40 (20639) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2012

Bomber from Finger Lakes Beverage(?), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. mkel07 (5963) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2012
App.: Very deep brown (black?) with a fair light mocha head.
Aroma: Lots of strong, rich roasted malts, sorta fruity, chocolate all over the place, some molasses and hints of soy sauce, borders on an Impy Stout in some ways, a bit of licorice, big and rich.
Palate: Medium+ body, fairly relaxed effervescence, a bit powdery/astringent.
Flav.: Really big, rich roasted flavour, molasses, chocolate, a bit of coffee, borderline briny (Impy Stout territory), a touch fruity, quite big and inky; dry with fair bitterness and a long, chocolatey finish.
650ml bottle. There’s a big deep fluffy white head of latte coloured foam atop a dark tea coloured beer. Big chocolate and roasted malt aromas are very nice as is the flavour with a mild bitterness and bitter dark chocolate flavours. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2012

En arôme, les houblons fruités prennent une place surprenante, oranges, abricots et fleurs contenu par un mur de torréfaction. En bouche c’est moyen avec un fini très floral pour accompagner le caramel et sucres denses. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Over carbonated pour. Chestnut brown body with a huge, frothy off white head. Nose is very nutty which is perfect for a brown ale this big. The main feature though, is caramel biscuit and light floral tones. Very nice nose to it. The large dose of nuts is portrayed in the taste with a lot hop bitterness coming into play. Toffee underneath it all. Nice. Would be great if it wasn’t for the oxidation Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle from Jeckyll’s Beer Lab. Dark brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is bread, chocolate, and roast. Taste is nutty, astringent, and bitter with a little roasted nuts on the finish. ccex (1313) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2012
22 oz bottle pours a clear brown with big frothy tan head and good lacing. The label looks more like an early 1970s album cover than a beer label. Nose has banana and grapefruit. Aroma is quite different and fairly complex: lots of nuts and roasted or caramel malts. Taste is neither sweet nor bitter; I can detect a little brown sugar and some hoppiness. and body is at most medium. Slight carbonation and slightly slick mouthfeel, but easy to drink. I enjoy porters and stouts, so this was an unusual and good one which I will revisit. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a lovely dark brown with tan head. Nice lacing. Nose/taste of mixed nuts, burnt and roasted malt and some caramel notes. Some juicy citrus mixed in on the mouth feel. Finishes a bit dry. Medium body. Nice beer.
