12oz can - pours a very dark brown with a med light tan head. Good roasty coffee like aroma with a subtle nuttiness and maybe a hint of hops. Rich flavor for a brown ale - light roasted grain, chocolate, hearty bread, light coffee and a hint of earth.

stevoj (4956) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Can from Boise Co-op. Was expecting more of s winter warmer, but this a straight up brown ale, nothing too exciting. Dark, clear brown, adequate foamy head. Pretty solid lacing. Mild roast grain aroma, mildly sweet. Taste features the roast graind, with some sugary sweetness towards the back. Long lingering bitterness finishes it.

Pours a dark brown with some beige head. Smells of roasted malt, bready, sweet, caramel, and smokey. Taste is a lot of smoke, some rye, cloves. and caramel. Light carbonation. Sightly bitter. Nice to drink. I’ll have more.

Dark brown color. The aroma is bready, with roasted malts. The mouthfeel is not weak, but quite dry; nice flavor of roasted malts, some dark chocolate, rye, maybe a touch of smoke.
Nice, solid.

3.6
ZodiacM (1140) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2016
Uit grote fles (0,5l) geschonken. Bruinrood bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur van mout en gist. De smaak is een stuk complexer: mout, gist, licht rokerig, hop, zoet-bitter met een grassige nasmaak. Het bier heeft een wat dunne body, maar is voor een brown ale heel smaakvol.

mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
On tap at Fremont, pours a reddish deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, some dry cocoa, and leather. Flavour is quite rich for a brown ale, with notes of cocoa, leather and toasted malt. Medium residual sweetness with a rather thick body for the style. Very nicely constructed.
