Draft at Churchkey, courtesy of Eric - thank you sir! Murky medium brown color, large brown head. Aroma and taste of black bread and Nutella. Amazing body for a 5% beer! Good stuff.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Poured into a mug. 3.5 A: Dark brown color. One finger of creamy tan head with below average retention, but some spotty lacing. 4.5 S: The nose is very nice. Lots of toastiness with a nearly as strong earthy nuttiness. Toffee secondarily along with a touch of molasses. Not particularly complex, but very harmonious. 4.0 T: Taste for the most part follows the nose. Lots of toastiness, dry roasted nuts, earthy muskiness, just a touch of toffee and molasses for sweetness, and a weak hop bitterness. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Could be a bit creamier, but otherwise quite smooth. 4.0 D: Pretty good beer. Lots of what I like in a brown ale. This would be a hell of a beer if it was a bit sweeter and creamier.

Hansen (8545) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2011
Dark brown and clear. Has an off-white head, medium duration, looks good. Aroma is roasted, toasted, slightly burnt, almost like a schwartzbier. Sweet flavor, moderate bitter finish, creamy texture.

Beer5000 (6320) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2011
355 ml bottle. Clear, dark brown body with a small, dense beige head. Aroma of malt and light roasted caramel. Flavor is malty, caramel, chocolate, bread and hint of roast. Relatively light and very pleasant bitterness. Aftertaste is long and malty. This beer shows that there is still hope for brown ale. Lovely.

screigh (700) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pour more like the color of a weak stout than a brown ale. My pour had no head at all. Aroma is sweet and reminds me of fruit. Taste starts very sweet with an almost vine like character. Some nuttiness.

dmac (6032) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2011
12 oz bottle courtesy of jtcockwork, thanks James. Poured a dark brown clear body with an average sized light beige head. Aroma of raw chocolate cake bater, slight vegtables, brown bread and wet toffee. Medium bodied with very light almost nonexistant carbonation, granted this one was open for a bit. Flavor of well done toasted brown bread, green leafy vegtables, hint of chocolate towards the end. Nice even with some vegtable notes in the flavor/aroma.

12 fl. oz. bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV not mentioned on the label. Very dark brown colour, nearly black. Big to moderate tan head. Nice malty aroma with notes of caramel and brown bread. The flavour is distinctly malty with notes of caramel and brown bread again, without becoming too sweet. Low bitterness. Nutty finish.
