Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany color with small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and nuts. Taste is slightly sweet of brown sugar, nuts, hops and caramel. Finishes a little on the bitter side with the flavor of most other nut brown ales.

Pours a nice dark brown, with a soda head that disappears quickly. fizzing just like soda. Ugh. Aroma is sweet and malty, slightly perfumey (can’t pinpoint why). Chocolate and hops pepper also. Flavor is initially sweet, some dark fruit, then an excellent nutty midsection, and a warm, bready aftertaste with medium hoppy bitterness. Other than the bizzare carbonation/head situation, I find it hard to dislike this beer.

Interesting grain,malt field hop aroma, sharp grain and nut malt taste,with a touch of hop in swallow,has a strange hop tang to it. Drinkable but not memorable

I was rather impressed by this beer. Deep brown color, smooth frothy head and a very rich malty taste, that develops smoothly after the initial bitterness. It’s not as nutty as Samuel Smiths (nor as good) but is a good beer nonetheless. I recommend it.

Dark color with a nice head. Fairly decent flavor, but it’s also a bit thin for my taste. Taste of nuts, malt, slight hop bitterness. Could be a much better brown ale if it wasn’t quite as thin. Overall, flavor is good but the mouthfeel is lacking, still not a bad session beer though.

Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Rich dark color seems to be hebrew’s signiture, or strong suit. Very carbonated, like the Genesis, with a smokey aroma. Head large and airy, disipates rather quick. The Bad: flat and watery. the Good: balanced, fairly dry and sharp with nuts/caramel/hops/vanilla. in other words, flavorful. Not bad.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma is sweet and malty. Hints of cookie dough and roast. Scent not that hoppy or strong. Poured nutty dark brown. Large, tan, creamy head lasted. Flavor is malty and medium sweet. Hints of choclate, nuts, and brown sugar. Finish is slightly bitter to start then sweet and chalky. Light to medium body. Thick. Lively carbonation. Overall, an ok Brown Ale, but not this brewer’s best beer.

Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a dark, opaque, chocolate-cherry color with a small amount of tan bubbles mostly around the edges of the glass. Aroma and taste are of rich malt and mild hops with some molasses and dark fruit. Medium carbonation. Short, malty ending.

Dark ruby tinted brown. Soft, medium cap of fluffy tannish foam thats fastly dissolved to its skim and collar. Lacing is minimal in a few spots and strings. Aroma is tenderly sweetened with a light roasted caramel/toffee with notes of vanilla, maple, and molasses. Taste is solid with a firmly smooth maltyness of touch and go roasted hints under some fantastic solid tones of toffee, caramel, molasses, nuts, cocoa, and maple. Very firm and boldly set along the palate. Lengthy with just a breath of citric, piney hops towards the finish and lingers nicely with a moderate coating of toasted nuts and caramel. Firm, smooth, medium body thats very fitting and easy going with a slick malty texture that screams to be drank. And by the pint full! A very solid brown.
