Bottle. Nose showing etoh, otherwise caramel and spicy grain, a little honey and sweet chocolate malt. Very old, dulled copper penny color with a dense but short beige head. Taste is sweet, a little ashen roast sliding in under slippery malt, some caramel and laid-back chocolate, heavy without being aggressive, alcohol well-integrated (which I did not expect right out of the bottle). Faint tang, faint hops, little bit of a pilsner squeal, hint of floral notes. Medium-full body is not flat, but the taste is. Not quite sure what this is aiming for; strict style adherents would reject this straightaway, but I see it as more of a ditzy, confused Brown Ale. Jrwhitney6 (506) - - FEB 23, 2013
Pours brown with very slight head. Not much of a nose, but what there is consists of a nutty malt aroma. The nose carrier over to the taste - nutty, caramel malt present, with some bitterness on the finish. Pretty good.

Pour is dark brown with a light tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is of bready malts, slight earth, and sweet toffee. Flavor is of caramel, roasted coffee, and brown sugar with a dry/bitter finish. Medium bodied. pdery (6) - - FEB 14, 2013 does not count
Beer of the month selection. Great overall beer. Malty, slight chocolatey flavor. Goes down smooth. Would definitely drink it again queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle. Woody brown sugar malt and light alcohol aroma. Clear deep chestnut with a moderate beige head. Earthy roasty malt flavor with a long herbal bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Draught at the Gingerman NYC sept 2012. Dark brown (with some redish notes) beer with a small creamy beige head. Malty aroma. Malty, licorice, some tar flavour. Rather boring thin beer. SudsMcDuff (8496) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2013

(Bottle from Con). Pours a deep brown complexion with long-lasting tan head and persistent lacing. The flavor is malty with a bit of alcohol. Dry with mild bitterness. A decent English style strong ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Christpuncher (3251) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Really heavy beer full if flavor. Has a nice aftertaste and a crisp finish smells great and I would definitely get again.

Bottle. Woody toffee malt aroma. Chestnut with small head. Oak, light toffee malt and moderately bitter dry hay hops flavor. Tasty.
