dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2010
Aroma - caramel, roasted barley. Crystal clear dark brown, med head that lasts. salty bitterness smoothed out by a little sweetness. light body, lively carbonation and a slightly astringent in the finish. I tend to like more bitter and less sweet beers but this one I really enjoyed.

Bill Becker (1365) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Bottled 199th day of 2017. Pours brown, great head of foam and lacing. Roasted Brown Ale nose with a citrus bitterness and booze. The underlying Brown Ale, I like. The intense bitterness and intrusive alcohol, I don't. No problems or complaints aboot the mouthfeel. Not for me. Not this fresh at least.

Quite bitter, only medium body. I think this beer is a barley wine effectively. Overrated on ratebeer.bottle on Berkeley ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 Deep ruby red brown, decent but short lived head and drippy lacing. Black cherry, strong bitterness for brown ale. Dry finish with a lingering taste. $4.49 22oz bottle at Binny's, River Forest, IL

oobawa (1656) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Nice giant brown ale, big on dark malt goodness, possibly even bigger on the piney, resinous hops. Giant doses of chocolate-laced caramel are backed up by the slightest hint of Lagunitas orange marmalade hops, underscored by a slight red apple yeastiness that helps balance out the clingy, IBU-flinging finish. Modest notes of dried apricot and raisin lie way, way underneath all the crazy malting, but mostly this beer’s like sipping a candybar pinecone milkshake. Okay, not really, but it’s still pretty damn good.

Emelie (172) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2017
Klar, brun, beiget skum. Doft: Torkad frukt, syrligt, metall, bränt socker, coca-cola. Smak: rund och maltig, råg, ganska mild, beska och papper i eftersmak, aningen vattnig och spretig.

Samuel214 (1353) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2017
Flaska från SB, ca 1 år gammal? Provning med ölsällskapet. Kastanjebrun med gräddigt beiget skum som lämnar lite rester längs kanterna. Knäckig och nötig doft med karamell, brunt socker, lätt rågsyra, molass, blöt kartong. Len medium/lätt kropp. Smak av knäck, karamell, nötiga toner, grädde, kakao och en matt maltighet. Fortfarande markant beska som balanserar upp de maltiga tonerna väl. Riktigt trevlig!

Florya (2027) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 12, 2017
How: bottle Appearance: brown with a medium tanned head. Aroma: chocholate, caramel, cocoa, hay, toast. Palate: medium to full body, soft carbonation.
