triplehopped (65) - - AUG 16, 2013
Pours a deep chocolate brown with a small tan head and small lacing. Aroma is a roasty malt with a very subtle hint of hay. Taste is medium sweet. Medium bodied with average carbonation, sits smooth and finishes clean with a slight, pleasant bitterness. Overall, a satisfying brown that would have accompanied a steak or burger superbly.

Tap. Medium orange brown with a tall off-white head. Caramel, slight earthiness, and pasta. Taste is moderately sweet. Medium body, foamy feel.

Got on tap at the local Old Chicago. Pours brown with light brown head. Not too sweet, not too dry. Has a bit of a nutty aroma. Was hoping the taste would follow, but not much flavor to speak of. Very mild and light. I may have gotten a bad sample as I finished off the keg. Will have to try again.

On tap at Lazlo’s in Lincoln. From Notes 9/29/2012. Pours a brownish color with white head. Nutty, malty, toffee flavors. My favorite Empyrean beer I’ve had so far. At my travel site, 50 miles northwest of Omaha, I am always hoping that they have this one at the bars. When they do, I’m relieved to get something both local and 10 times better than Bud.

BillHick420 (469) - NORWAY - FEB 1, 2013
Pours clear light brown with an off-white head. Thin mouth feel, decent aroma of coffee, hints of chocolate and caramel. Not to bad, but feels like a stout/porter knock-off.

Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is berry, toasted malts. The flavor is chocolate, roasted malts, yeasty, berries, slight woodiness. A well made brown ale. Reminds me of the chocolate covered jelly sticks.

A solid brown but nothing special. Pours a somewhat pale brown with a fizzy head that quickly fades. Malt and a hint of nuts.

uhclem (430) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Not a bad brown. I would like to see a longer-lasting head. Also, mouthfeel was on the thin side - needs a little more body.
