Pours a dark amberish brown with a thin light tan head. The nose has notes of chocolate and licorice that includes a bit of hop aroma as well. First sip is malty and roasted moderately with coffee and chocolate flavours. Rich and malty with a bit of a sweet overbearing flavour. The finish has nutty and chocolate notes as well as citrusy hops and a smooth finish. bulldogops (2491) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
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. Really really light in body for a brown ale. Taste is bold roasty, light sweetness, dominant roast malt, well hopped character with a slightly bitter finish that is quite pleasant. Superb. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle poured into glass. Dark brown color with a thin head. Pretty much like your standard brown ale: malty, slightly sweet with roasted nutty notes. I liked it but it didn’t blow me away. TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Nut brown with tan beige head. Nice hoppy flavour. A good ammount of malt sweetness. Chocolatey. Roast malt bitter finish. Quite good. fidelis83 (2438) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Pours dark brown with a tall, chunky tan head that has great retention. Aroma is toasted nuts, sweet malt, brown sugar, a touch of sweet caramel and floral, herbal hops. Flavor is brown sugar, toasted nuts, toasted butter, sweet, crusty, white bread, a touch of roast, light chocolate and herbal, citrus and grassy hops. Palate is medium bodied, dry throughout and (a little too) highly carbonated. Pretty tasty brown ale, though a little high on the boozy burn and a bit to dry, I’m guessing lots of brown sugar was used.

Bottle at ChrisO’s Back in the UK tasting, 22nd May 2010. Reddish amber with a strong pineapple nose. Light, fresh palate. Flavour is a fierce clash of sweet malt and some intense hops. To my mind, this is a dark, dry IPA rather than a brown ale. There’s a woody note in there too. Interesting beer. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 4, 2013
22oz bottle. Clear deep brown with a rocky tan head and lacing. Aroma of doughy malt, chocolate, citrus and pine. Flavor is rich and malty with a firm hop bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Medium body with a fairly dry mouth feel. This is a really nice beer, lots of hop flavor and bitterness balance out this big brown. Excellent. portableparty (2350) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours brown with a off white sudsy head that fades to a soapy collar. Aroma is roasted malt some coffee. Taste has subtle hops and spice/pepper notes and a strong coffee and roasted malt flavor all around. Palate is medium somewhat slick and finishes dry. Solid brown ale with strong notes of what counts, in my opinion! legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2011
