Bottle 22fl.oz. @ chrisos Back In The UK Tasting.
Clear medium orange amber color with a small, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, wood, sugar, moderate hoppy, overripped fruit, leather notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long duration, dry. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. 
Pours brown wit a tan head. Smells roasty with some spicy hints. Tastes of spice, bitter, some roasty hints. Bordering more on a black IPA than a brown ale. Braudog (6900) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2011

Thanks to Blankboy for picking this up for me in Buffalo. Appearance: Pretty black, small white head. Aroma: woody and nutty, rye bread, a hint of nutella too. Nice. Flavour: Malty, lots of smoke and nuts, quite wood like again, tons of hops with a good floral feel to it, lots of carbonation with a hoppy malt finish. Quite nice.

22 oz. Bottle bought near Boston. Calling the tan head does not do it justice. Massive and gushing are better. A nice nose of dark fruit and rich malt. Flavor is cocoa to begin and then dark fruit blends with it. At the finish some soft floral hop notes emerge and the finish is more sour and citrusy. A nice brown.

Bomber, bottled on 06/21/2011 and consumed at just 3 weeks out. The pour yields a mostly clear to very slightly hazy mahogany body with an ample, spongy head of khaki froth. Slowly settling into a bubbly ring, the foam leaves thick swaths of craggy lacing all over the glass. Pretty brew. The nose is quite intensely hopped for a brown ale, showing notes of pine, fresh grass, and green herbs over a malty base of toasted cookie dough, scorched brown sugar, and mild chocolate roast. Flavors are just as well balanced, showing nice attenuation on the toasty brown malts, with plenty of biting, resinous pine and floral hops for peppery bitterness. Biscuit and cookie are common themes, but they’ve been toasted to the point where much of the residual sweetness has dissipated, which I really appreciate. The palate is substantive, but not at all sticky or cloying. Steady carbonation provides some excitement, and it also serves to clear the palate of most (but not all) of its lingering sugars. Mighty fine brew in its fresh state. Definitely check that born on date and enjoy some hoppy brown goodness while you can. joergen (29598) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2011

(22oz bottle from Total Wine Desert Ridge). Pours a clear (when held to light) dark brown/mahogany color with chunky 2 finger tan head that leaves some lacing. Active carbonation. Aroma has some nice chocolate, caramel along with some pine and citrus. Taste is semi-sweet with some light, but up-front bitterness that is almost smoky. Thin bodied with an oily texture. Bitter finish. Not bad at all. I wish it were a tad sweeter, but it still works for my tastes. Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2011
