"Solid brew for a brown ale, but nothing too exciting. Slightly better than the average brown...decent body and carbonation, aroma and flavor slightly more robust than the norm. Malted chocolate, light nutiness, earthy hops, and a touch of bittersweet in the finish."

madsberg (11762) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2004
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Head is light beige. Malt, light spices, sweetness in the aroma. Malt and some flowers in the flavour. Vague bitterness in the end. Boring.

shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle. Brown sugar malt and acidic aroma. Dark brown with small head. Molasses and chocolate malt flavor with moderate hops finish. Very nice.

hopscotch (11049) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Crystal clear copper ale with a small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Cirrus lacework. Malty, sweet aroma. A bit floral and chocolatey. Maybe a note of vanilla and a hint of port. The well-balanced flavor is lightly chocolately and roasty with a suggestion of buttermilk. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, crisp finish.

daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2008
brown pour, small tan head. Malty, nutty, and pumpernickel aromas. Flavor is malty and pretty watery. I am not impressed with this brewery again.

j12601 (10955) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a medium to large sized browned beige head. Soft malt on the nose, toast and a touch of cocoa. There’s a faint bit of paper behind it all, lurking in the background, gaining prominence as the beer warms. Medium bodied, toasty and warm. Soft roasted malt, a bit of cocoa and chocolate. Finishes up with some more roast notes, a touch of nutty malt. Overall pretty decent.

DocLock (10652) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2005
Burnt sienna pour with aroma of big roasty malt, chocoff, some hops. Tastes malty, with chocoff, nuts, and brown sugar elements. Smooth and silky.

adnielsen (10605) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Argonaut Denver. Pours a deep brown appearance with a brown head. A bit tangy, buttery caramel malty, nutty, toasty aroma. Roasty malty, caramel, chewy nutty, a touch fruity flavor. A bit watery. Bleh.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Dark brown pour with a smaller cream head. Aroma of dark malts - nut & caramel. Medium to a slightly thinner palate. Taste is nut, caramel, a touch of dark fruit - pretty nice nut brown.
