Bomber into a pint glass. Pours mahogany, with a dense tan head that lasts. Good lacing. Nose is hops and malt,and the taste follows. Malt up front gives way to moderate hop bitterness. Not what you’d expect from a brown ale-hoppier than the norm. Pretty good, but not outstanding. swanmann (778) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Deep dark brown color with a touch of burgundy, about an inch of tight tan bubbles that evaporate pretty quickly; piny aroma with some dark chocolate, pecan shell. The flavor is fairly hoppy with a touch of toastyness, a bit of mild chocolate sweetness. The carbonation’s a bit prickly, the mouthfeel’s just south of heavy. It’s delicious but not a typical brown at all. More like a malty pale ale. AgentAle (1809) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2016
Aroma is roasted malts, fig, clove and light tart. Taste is medium roasted makes with hints of caramel, toast, fig, and nuts. Finishes with light clove bitterness. Appearance is a dark amber with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well. pluginbaby78 (16) - ITALY - JAN 15, 2016
Buonissima interpretazione americana di brown Ale. Molto luppolata e abbastanza ruffiana. Non stanca mai.stephenco (54) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - JAN 11, 2016

1 pint 6 fl oz (650ml) bottle from HK Brewcraft. My first double brown ale. Pours clear medium brown with thick brown head. Very hoppy with high ABV, but well balanced.

Consummation: A spicy and very malty brew.
Adjunct: A touch of skunk, bitter ending, long lasting creamy head. fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle from Spirit of Mt. Seymour, North Vancouvertysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Brown color with medium sized head. Good dark malts, some chocolate, roasted nuts, correct bitterness, a bit breadish.
Just too hoppy. Not a big fan of overly hoppy beers. More of a malt guy. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Dark brown with a huge white head. Aroma of malts and caramel. Smooth body, taste of caramel and dark malts, sweet at first than balanced by hop bitterness. Very good ale. bulldogops (2907) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 Rating #1165 - 10.07.2014 - Bottle from CBI, enjoyed in a water glass at the Super 8 in Saskatoon. Dark brown pour with a weak bubbly tan foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong roast malts, hint of nutty sweetness. Taste is bold roasty, light sweetness, dominant roast malt, well hopped character with a slightly bitter finish that is quite pleasant. Superb.
