[2015 Backlog] Sampled at Paul’s. Pours a dark, hazy brown body. Nose is cocoa, toast, caramel malt and roasted character. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and crisp on the palate with notes of light malt, toasted bread, burnt caramel and soft grains. edsspoon (905) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2015
Can - ruby red with a foamy light brown head which gradually bubbles away to a thick ring. Light lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, mint and lemon, hints of cacao nibs and orange. Pretty much like smelling fresh Goldings hops. Taste of mint leaves, grass, lemon balm and a little coriander leaf. A little rose, orange and spice with a light bitterness to finish. Medium body, medium carbonation, soapy body. crazy_cat_lady (765) - - SEP 19, 2015
On tap at brewery. Bermondsey beer mile stop #1! Very dark reddish brown. Thin head. Bitter mouth feel, lingering biscuit in the afternoon taste. Aroma of toasted biscuit. ARH (1141) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2015
On tap under the name "Beartooth," poured into a shaker. The aroma is most notably, and expected, coffee with some dark fruits / figs that strengthen later, but there’s a very unique and unexpected note of lemon zest in there with some citrus blossom. It pours a deep, rich molasses brown with a light tan, small suds head that leaves a moderate retention and lacing. The taste is a malty, medium bittersweet; perhaps a bit on the bitter side of balanced. The texture is thin and oily with a smooth carbonation. The medium body hits the palate with a nice roasted grains, oranges, and figs blend with a caramel malt supporting note. The finish is a smooth blend of chocolate and nuts leaving a dark chocolate aftertaste that’s mildly cloying with some burnt nuts as well. jamestulloch (4466) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Can from Deeside Drinks Emporium. Deep ruby/brown body with a thick beige head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of copper, twigs, chocolate digestive biscuit and orange peel. Flavour of flat Coca-Cola, earth, wood and roasted malts. Thin to medium body with a smooth texture. Soft fizz. Not as hoppy as I hoped it would be, but this is a decent Brown Ale.

Aroma: The aroma of this one has a solid mix of hops and dark malts, dark fruit, chocolate
Appearance: Brown pour with a lighter brown/tan colored head
Flavor: It tastes pretty similar, good balance between the flavors, very solid
Palate: It has a fairly soft carbonation, slightly thin feel, with a light dry finish
Overall, I thought this was a pretty solid one. Not an amazing beer, but something I’d drink again.
Canned from Rheged Penrith. Pours a deep and murky chocolate colour with an off White head. Lovely spruce hop aroma, which is a pleasant surprise. Underneath that is a subtle smoky and woody rich malt flavour - the two combine really well to produce a cracking beer and my favourite from Four Pure so far. j12601 (13472) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2015
