A bit of a flat taste, but not bad flavor. Good dark amber color. Not overly carbonated, which is always a good thing.
A solid brown ale with nice milk chocolate notes and some roasted walnut. Pours a dark brown with a short head.

Lands halfway between an English and American brown, full of caramel, chestnuts, and hazelnuts, but also with an admirable U.S. hop streak, not dominant but enough to fight off any cloying esters. Mild chocolate comes through underneath, leading to a general malt parade of a pint. Decent pour, coming out a healthy red-brown with a slight off-white head and light lacing. Nose is pure caramel malt, nothing else. Texture’s right, full but brisk and creamy. Extra hops would be nice, but a solid brown as-is. SG111 (1820) - New York, USA - JUN 27, 2017

Bottle sample at a tasting at Lior D’s place. Thanks Stas and Max. Murky brown. Old chestnuts and some old chocolate aroma, sweet, slightly bitter, nutty taste with lots of chocolate milk. Medium body, fizzy, long chocolate malt and slightly alcoholic finish. shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2017
12oz bottle. Mahogany pour with a wispy head of light tan cream. Rich nutty aroma is full of complexity. Flavors are also complex, with just a hint of alcohol. Full body. This is a monster brown ale.

A dark brown with a beige head. Aroma contains coffee, chocolate, toffee, and nutmeg. The flavor is slightly sweet and dry with some caramel, chocolate, toffee. The finish is nutty like me. Overall a good brown ale. DSG (14764) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 26, 2017
