I should preface this by saying: I’ve had it a few times which is impressive because I usually hate brown ales.
Brown pour with minimal head. Smell is caramel and some hops that aren’t typical of this style. The flavor is nice - it’s still a brown ale so it isn’t my favorite but the hops definitely shine and make this much more drinkable than I usually consider this style to be. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Brown pour. Thanks Ernesto. Loved this. Creamy, soft, just hoppy enough, light nutty flavors. smaynard6000 (1295) - Apopka, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours brown with generous beige head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt and cereal grains. Mostly sweet flavor with caramel malt notes. Bit of chocolate and roastiness as well. Bit of hoppiness barely present in the finish. Bold and well defined flavors. Medium bodied. A very well done brown. SudsMcDuff (8566) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2016 pretty weak attempt at a brown ale, has a gritty roast to it, some bread crust and hair .. . mouth is weak, gritty bitter finish, surprised how much i didn’t care for it .. . . had another bottle, even worse, so gritty and plain. badly made brown ale.Ferris (18245) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Don’t be like that dad, there’s a war on.
Oh, I wondered what the noise was.
Bottle - Leafy hops, tea leaves and a nutty brown notes. Dirty brown with a light brown head. Dark roast, bitter and some light chocolate notes. Bitter and roasty, maybe too much for a brown.

750 mL growler. Originally reviewed 5/6/2013.
Deep amber. A few big bubbles. Nothing on the surface.
Smell is nutty and chocolatey. Moderately hopped. Nice.
Taste is hoppier than the nose implies. Nice nutty and chocolate flavor. Simple but nice. Just a bit of bitterness.
Medium body. Rich flavor. Medium low carbonation.
Quality beer as always. Nothing out of the ordinary but an excellent brown. Johnsense (1850) - - NOV 7, 2015
Dsrk brown pour, huge rings of lace. Aroma of citrus fruits, chocolate, roasted malt. Bitter Hops up front gives way to huge roasted malt, dark bread, chocolate. Mr_Abner (389) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown with an off-white head that leaves behind lots of messy lacing as it recedes. Aromas of caramel malt, some chocolate & cocoa, scant alcohol. Taste has a moderate sweetness balanced with a moderate bitterness. Medium bodied with less than average carbonation. Smooth and a bit "chalky" for lack of a better deScriptor. Flavors last well into the finish. kermis (15415) - Amsterdam-ish, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours dark brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of overripe dark fruit, nutty notes, raisins, roast, cardboard and light oxidized notes (though it’s a new bottle). Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. ametras (1888) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2015
