Bottle. Decent American brown. Toffee and nutty notes. Medium to lighter bodied. Not a huge fans of brown ales but this is a decent one Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Heavy aroma of cocoa beans and coffee. Reddish cola appearance. It’s nutty and sweet, but surprisingly bitter and astringent as well. Thin, with the consistency of warmed syrup. Typically American brown ale.

On tap in The Ginger Man, July 2012.
Dark brown with a small head. Sweet aroma and with nuts, toffee, some light roasted malt. Nicely drinkable, descent stuff.

Chocolatey, nutty brown ale that drinks easily and smoothly. A little thin, though not out of style.

pours a rich dark brown color with minimal tan head. Aroma is leather and chocolate. Taste is dark malt yet not overly sweet offset by a bit of spicy hops. It then turns chocolate as the taste lingers. micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Cloudy and hazy mahogany color. Not much head formation even after an aggressive pour, but has good carbonation.
Mostly malty aromatics with some chocolate powder.
Simple tasting nutty and malty and a bit dry on the palette.
Plain jane beer. ben4321 (6422) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle, 5/17/12
Aroma: This one has a sweet nose of caramel, nuts, dark malts, roast, and coffee
Appearance: It has a mahogany-brown pour with a small-mid sized light brown head and spotty lace
Flavor: It tastes of sweet malts and roasted malts, lightly bitter coffee and earthy flavors show up later
Palate: The body is fairly light for the style, but not particularly watery, and it has a slightly acidic finish
I have no idea where this one came from, but thank you to whomever left it in my fridge! This one is a pretty solid offering. It has some nice nut brown-like components to it, and overall it drank pretty decently. It may not be a top-of-style offering, but I have no major complaints either.
