Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is lightly chocolatey and nutty. Flavor has more caramel than chocolate...also nutty. Mouthfeel is light/medium and lively...finish is nutty and roasty.

On tap at The Liberty in Charlotte. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma is of toasted, nutty malt, prunes and plums. Light, smooth, quite thin body. Taste is of some toasted malt and some dark fruit. I’m not impressed with this brew.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown, thin brown head. Aroma is strong chocolate like a brownie. Also some basement aromas. Taste is mild sweet roasty chocolate. Medium body, higher carbonation, mildly bitter lingering fizzy finish. Overall an OK brown ale.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2011
Dark brown to black coloured beer with a small off white head and some little carbonation. Slightly roasted malty to almost chocolaty aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is malty, chocolat roasted with a light creamy ending. Nice taste but misses some character.

Pours dark copper brown with one finger of light tan head. Nose shows chocolate and roast with some sweet grain and leafy hops. Lots of chocolate in the flavor, interesting brown ale.

Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2011
Reviewed from notes. On tap at the brewpub. Pours a chestnut color with a light tan head and a small amount of lacing. The nose brings some light toasted malt, caramel, and a bit of a nutty characteristic. The taste is pretty tame, with some bread, caramel, toffee, and nuts. Feel is good with adequate carbonation. Nice and smooth. Drinks well enough, but nothing special. Fairly sessionable. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-29-2010

Aurelius (5257) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Mild toast and light caramel aroma - nice, but subtle. Poured from a growler retrieved by LuckyDog from the brewery. A bittersweet cocoa bite, not overly hopped, toast, some caramel and nuts. Effervescent, but with a solid mouth. Long roasty finish with just a hint of creosote. A decent session brew.

Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a medium creamy/bubbly off white head. Aroma of nuts, toffee, caramel and hints of chocolate. Flavor of the some. Getting some metallic notes. But overall a nice brown ale. I would hop it more...but this is a solid version.
