Taster pour at Powder Keg Beer and Chili Festival. Appearance is cloudy dark brown, with finger-width beige head with good retention, lacing. Aroma is vaguely sweet, caramel, nuts. Taste is surprisingly fruity (grape?), and bready more than caramel; nuts. A little odd for a nut brown. Palate is medium bodied with watery texture, flat-to-soft carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, a pretty "unique" (or odd, depending on your perspective) fruit quality but otherwise the usual suspects are here. Fairly average. Drperky76 (38) - - AUG 13, 2017
My bottle was a bit flat, but flavor was great. Would likely buy again but make sure it was consumed quickly.

Treated as an American strong ale due to ABV, this was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a rustic burnt orange to brown color with a deep haze around the body and a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Slim lacing running all around the glass.
The aroma had some brown sugar, nutty malts and toffee blending decently with some light expected booziness to it.
The flavor leans to the sweet side with the previously mentioned aromas blending nicely. Sweet boozy nuts in the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sipping quality to it. Carbonation feels good for the style and shapes a fair stickiness about it.
Overall, good as an American strong ale, but not as a brown ale. Still, I would come back to. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
Une dégustation offerte par Frank. Thx! Un liquide qui a la couleur d’un porter. Une feuille comme construction mousseuse. Un nez de grains rôtis un peu acides et de jus de torréfaction rendu froid. Un goût noir touché par une saveur cendrée. Un corps mince et flagada. Une finale courte et inoffensive. Rien à voir avec une brown ale. Pas catastrophique mais pas reluisante. 5/10. mcox90 (2159) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with some ruby edges. Fairly frothy 2 finger beige head & some lace. Nutty, malty nose. Flavor is semi sweet with nuts, a hint of brown sugar and a dash of brown sugar. Mostly nuts though. Moderate to thin palate with active carbonation. Basic brown ale.

Bomber on 8/16/13. Pours medium to dark brown with little to no head. Not much on the nose, faint maltiness. No hops. Taste is toasted malt, malt sweetness, bready, a little vinegary. Very under carbonated. Picking up alcohol for a 9.5% beer. Was pretty excited for what appeared to be an imperial nut brown which I haven't come across much but was very underwhelmed.

Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a large, frothy tan head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is nutty and caramel malt, toast, dates and figs with spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation. jimhilt (2634) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Pours a two finger dark cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace, some yeast left in bottle. Hazy mahogany color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light roasted coffee nose and flavor is roasted coffee. Higher ABV totally hidden, is this really 9.5% ?? $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Market Basket Concord, NH.

22 oz. bottle from the brewery. Color is deep brown with quickly falling, tan head. Light lace. Nose is nuts, adjunct malt and some sort of yeast. Perhaps lager yeast? But a aroma I can’t quite place. A lot of nutty flavor is present throughout the sip. Medium in body. Good moderate carbonation. ABV is only slightly noticeable in the finish. An easy drinking Brown Ale but what I’m a bit upset about is the price. I paid $8.99 at the brewery, guess I’m the sucker one this one. Volgon (2761) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bomber: Pours a clear orange with a medium off-white head, huge caramel and rich malts in the aroma, starts and ends lightly sweet, medium bodied with a malty ending.
