Delicious and very likable beer. Sweet and malty brown. I’ve had a lot of tinny beers lately so this one was a refreshing change. BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - APR 17, 2002
This was the beer that kicked me off as a beer reviewer. Look where I am now, 50 lbs heavier and my wallet is too. Revisited this one with a friend a couple of nights ago and was pretty impressed. Much fuller body than an English brown but still fairly easy drinking. I think we call these beers porters in England. Chocoalty and nutty while a hop presence provides excellent balance throughout. A beer I'll definitely be recommending to anyone who orders a Newcastle. TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2003
Nutty, yeasty, sweet aroma. Moderately thick and full body with minor hints of blandness. Light nutty taste on the tongue and a generous nutty flavor lingers in your mouth like listerine after you swallow it. Possibly the darkest brown i've ever had. Peachy keen.

Opaque brown beer, almost black, with a quickly dying toffee head. There's a definite roasted nut aroma here, and an unsurprising nut flavor to go with it. It's a bit light on the mouth, perhaps, but otherwise an excellent American nut brown. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2004
Draft. Very dark brown, almost to a porter level. Nice earthy hop aroma. Hops and balanced malts in the mouth, citrusy and earthy flavors move back and forth, with a bitter finish. Very good for the style, hoppier than was expecting.

Poured into a pint glass. Color is dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is nutty with roasted coffee. Flavor is similar with a primary emphasis on the roasted flavors. Palate is smooth. Overall a nice brown ale. ADfan (870) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 1, 2011
Still one of my favorites, dark brown color with tan head. Aroma is nutty with some other roasted flavors. Taste is smooth with some caramel, toffee and maybe some dried figs, Easy drinking with a smooth finish. verdizzy (18) - - JUL 8, 2012
Pours dark brown with a finger thick off white head. Hazy. Aroma is strong floral hops. Taste is complex. Floral, chocolaty, earthy, slight hops at the end. Mild bitterness and crisp. Love the balance of this beer!
