Pours a ruby/amber color with a thin lt tan head. Aroma is malty and lightly fruity...not much going on. Flavor is roasty with chocolate notes...decent hoppiness to balance a bit. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty with a touch of chocolate. Not bad but kind of boring... italianjohn (3163) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2012

Draft. Murky brown color, massive thick cream colored head. Aroma of light pine and brown bread. Taste is Christmas fruitcake without the fruit. Not bad. pushkinwow (2827) - Ottawa, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
500ml can from a trade. Dark mahogany with a one finger tan head that leaves a nice thin layer. Malty with some roasted grains, bit of caramel and nuttiness. Smooth with high carbonation that gives a bit of prickliness, moderate body, lots of malt on the finish as it becomes quite dry with light hops. Decent. kaser (6314) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2012

Draught at Churchkey. Brown pour with tints of red, good sized frothy head. Nose and flavor bring touches of caramel malt, bread, and some weird spice and herb presence that just doesn’t work. Not a fan. keepersj12 (3133) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2012
For those that like a malty beer. On tap at Hawthornes in Philly. Nice dark amber with a malt, bread, caramel aroma. The flavor is the same balanced by just a bit of hops. It is light and refreshing. GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Pours dark chestnut brown ith a small beige head, not much lacing.
Aroma is sweet with caramel malts but also has a solid toasted nut character. Light citrus hops and multi-grain bread.
Taste is roasty up front, bread and caramel together. Not a lot of hops but maybe a bit of cocoa powder. Finish is dry and nutty.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated, crisp and clean for a brown.
This is a well-crafted brown with nothing standing out but it’s really drinkable. alobar (3833) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours brown with reddish highlights and a slightly off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, nuts, and hops. Chocolate, nuts,roasted malt, and hop flavor. Nice beer! Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2012
16oz can thanks to blutt59.
Reddish brown pour, lots of tan head. Nose is nutty with lots of bready malts. Even more nuts in the flavor - smooth and malty.
