UPDATED: NOV 19, 2011 12 oz. bottle. Pours a short lived, ivory head, over a hazy, very light brown (SRM 17) body....nose is very light coffee, cocoa.....taste is light cocoa, bit of coffee, finishing with a light toffee/caramel bitterness....mouth feel light, carbonation makes a fizzy sensation. This beer meets its style, but is pretty much undistinguished, and uninteresting. BJCP 7/3/11/4/6. Upon a further tasting at brew club 11/19/11 this comes in with a much higher rating, because the cocoa became chocolate and hazelnut tones became obvious. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7.

Pours a dark chocolate brown. Smells strongly of chocolate with a hint of caramel. Really thick taste of chocolate. This is a hearty beer that would go good with a delicious steak.

Ratman197 (14360) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Doodler (thanks Scott) poured a clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of cocoa, carmel, light earthiness, light coffee and light vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, carmel, light coffee and a hint of vanilla with a smooth lingering cocoa finish.

daknole (10936) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Brown pour, tannish head. Very malty aroma with a good scent of coffee. Flavor is really weird. Coffee mixed with plastic and nail polish. Smells better than it tastes.

[Tap] Part of a sampler at Lazlos in Omaha. Pours a clear chestnut brown color. Sweet caramel and light toasted bread aroma. Some hazelnut and mild coffee grounds in the finish. Thin in body and rather one dimensional. Easy to drink, but I was looking for more.

Thanks to a77cj7 for sending me this bottle. The beer pours a medium brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is great. I get a lot of chocolate and coffee as well as some toffee, caramel and nuttyness. The flavor is not quite as good as the smell, but it is still very nice. I get chocolate, hazelbut, toffee and caramel. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice English-style brown ale.

12oz shorty bottle. Deep, opaque stained-glass red/brown. Thin off white head laces the glass. Deep, smooth chocolate, caramel, toffee notes. Medium bodied, a pretty true to style example. Rich, sweet, chocolate tones. Somewhat nutty. Refreshing. Well executed.
