mohawksin (187) - Nebraska, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Brown with small off white head. Smelled of toasted malts. Chocolate and vanilla flavor blend proved to be pretty nice. Tasted much better upon warming a bit. Malt flavors changed with temperature also to be more nutty than chocolatey. Very enjoyable drink.

Very light and sweet for a brown ale. Almost an amber lager with artificial citrus. .

superspak (5418) - Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, plum, pear, apple, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/roast malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, plum, pear, apple, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/roast malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice English brown ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready/roast malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

HuskerTan (2145) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle. A- Malty, slightly roasty, peat. A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, beige head. T- Malty, bland. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Pretty damn boring and not much going on at all. Like I couldnt even come up with any half decent descriptors. Ive officially decided Empyrean is the worst brewery in Nebraska.
