BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a tan head that fizzed out quickly. Coffee, roast, and some grain in the aroma. Subdue malt flavor of coffee and roast. Light body with a slight carbonation tingle.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Poured from a 12 oz bottle a deep brown with a slight reddish tint and a small tan head. Aroma was of roasted malts and hops. Flavor was roasted (almost burnt) malts with a good hop finish (coffee like) as the beer comes up in tempature turns more towards a bitter chocolate. Overall not a bad brew.

MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Very nice reddish-brown body. Pleasant aroma with a uniquely delicious nut-brown ale taste. Hop finish that was not overpowering, but heavily prevalent. Caramel flavors were also present. I was pleasantly suprised with this one.

jercraigs (10145) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2006
Bottle. Ruby tinged brown body, small tan head. Malty aroma, touch of a nutty brown ale bite to it. Sweet malt has plenty of earthy nutty notes as well. Average palate. Not bad. Brewnosers Meeting.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2006
Very dark brown in color, just some red, with a thick, tan head. Aroma is milk, chocolate powder, caramel, and a nice, warm nuttiness. Flavor is not as good as the aroma. It is unidimensional and there is a chalky, hardwater character that distracts from the palate and flavor profile. Softer water could make this exceptional.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Aroma has a decent roated malt backbone. Black body with decent head. Flavor is malty and somewhat weak. Malted water. Somewhat of a coffee aftertaste. To much malt not enough balance.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Medium head. Very dark crimson, clear with worthy carbonation. Aroma is slightly sour, metallic. Taste is caramel, bitter leafy hops, subtle dark malts in the background really round out the palate. Finish is metallic, with caramel notes still hanging around. Nice flavor up front, the rest was a little off.

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle. Pours deep coffee brown with a half inch tan head. Nice lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma of grapefruit, malt, and some hazelnut bite after it warms a bit. First taste nice and malty. Malt is bold and rich. Pear, apple blossom, and maybe the slightest hint of toffee. Finishes with more of those rich coffee/toffee malts, light hop bitterness. Great texture: the consistency of 2% milk, with subdued carbonation that leaves noting but the flavor. Well, they certainly got the malt right. The hop side of things is nowhere near as interesting, though the whole package is pretty well balanced. Yea, I could have another. Not quite sure if I’m offended by the shtick (probably not) which is both cute and slightly creepy at the same time. I’m sure Adonai could care less.

bottle - Amusing marketing campaign... I’m going to assume the brewers are Jewish as I’m not sure anyone else could get away with it. Now on to the beer. It’s got a medium head with some legs. Flavor is malty with a dry finish that’s really quite nice. Unlike many here, I like a good brown ale once in awhile and this is a good brown ale. It won’t blow you away, but I don’t think it will disappoint either. Huzzah!

red when held to the light, dark brown at other moments. puffy cream color head with a touch of yellow that clings. tootsie roll note in the otherwise vacant aroma, and by tootsie roll i mean wax paper included. fruity strawberry flavor with a rich brown sugar note. very watery. thin chocolate in the finish. caramel is present too. this is like a darker michelobe amber bock.
