BlackHaddock (6909) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2017
12oz bottle on 4th Feb 2017 at my daughters new place in Laguna Niguel. Nice brown body, beige head: malty lead which carried through to the finish. Aroma had malty molasses and chocolate notes, taste just followed on with semi-sweet maltiness and chocolate flavours.

Dark Amber to light brown color with off white/cream colored head. Aromas and flavors are balanced nicely between nuttiness, caramel, toast, and subtle roast and florals. An easy drinking sessionable brown.

Nut brown aroma with a smooth pole in the body with brown sugar and walnut. A nice and refreshing brown ale.

Panzerfaust (845) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 23, 2016
355ml bottle from Jumbo Costanera Center. Santiago, Nov. 2016 Pours a cloudy brown color with a big off-white head that diminishes quicky and leaves a small lacing. Aroma is a mixed bag of caramel, some cocoa, raisins, nuts and some apples, herbs and berries. More malty, but still some hops there. Taste is a bit uneven and unclean, but still packs a punch of toasted and caramel malts. The acidity and herbal/fruity bitterness doesnt get along very well with it though. Medium body. Fairly drinkable, just not my cup of tea. I like my Brown Ales maltier, woodier and nuttier.

Fukito (1048) - Santiago, CHILE - OCT 20, 2016
Clear dark ruby with a small off white head. Aroma is faint raisins with some dried fruits. Flavor is slightly toast malts, with some raisins and a touch of butterscotch. Medium to light palate. OK brown ale.

HourGlass13 (755) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Pours up a clear brown, and moderately thick, off white head. Light toasted malt aroma. Rich and robust, slick and sublime, lots of dark malts with hints of molasses sweetness round out to a nice nutty taste. The latest batch have been a little more watery than before.

freekyp (2088) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Clean and crisp but lacks the earthy nuttiness and chocolate character of other browns. A bit dry with some powdered chocolate. Mild hops and a nip of tartness shows in the finish. Meh.

nota (47) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy dark-orange/mahogany out of the bottle; minimal off-white head. Weak aroma with maple syrup, toffee, and roast hazelnut. Thin body and the nuttiness shows up later than youd expect. Slightly woodsy and earthy but unoffensive. Not a lot of personality is given up but in exchange its very drinkable.

drjoeng (1057) - SINGAPORE - JUL 13, 2016
5%ABV. Brown Ale. Tapped out light brown. 18SRM. Nose is beery. Some sweet aromas that are reminiscent of honeyed dates and Chinese red-date tea. Some honey sweetness and organic funk. Phenol in the nose. Mouthfeel is watery. Palate has nutty, black bread, hazelnuts. Ton of wheaty phenolic palate flavors. Finish is brief and beery.
