Bottle. A nice, drinkable brew w/ a huge caramel/brown ale flavor. Pretty good. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle, courtesy nbutler11. Dark cherry red pour, thick creamy white head and very thick lacing. Raisins and dry berries in the nose, dry fruits and some chocolate. Sticky dry raisin flavors, sharp hops, some slight roast. Interesting, not sure of the style exactly but it’s good. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Pours a murky amber red color, with a small off white head, decent lacing. The heads leaving! Aroma is salt water taffe(Sp?) fresh hops, tinging on the nose. Flavor is sweet smooth, with a nice hop bite, lots of booze bitterness with apple in the finish. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Tap. Pours dark brown, almost looks like a porter. Aroma of toffee and caramel, with some dried fruits. Taste is dominated by alcohol, then the sweet malt and caramel flavors come through. Earthy finish. Decent beer, don’t think I could have more than 2 at one time. Ty5592 (1024) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2008 Bottle from cbkscubert. Dark hazy amber color with nice tan head that vanishes quickly leaving good lacing. Aroma of malts and grape juice. Taste was malty with rasins, plums yeast, soy, and plums combined with a sour funk. Slight sour/ bitter finish. Funny, this beer smelled better than it tasted.

12oz bottle. Cherry-mahogany color, tiny irregular head, small collar, semi-adhesive. Very slight aroma, nutty. It’s sort of similar to Belgian Dubbels I’ve had, but it’s more bitter without being hoppy. Kind of burnt taste, some dark fruits. Definitely not bad, I’d like to try it on tap. hapjydeuce (1005) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Sampled on tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Didn’t see the label and assumed it was a barleywine before drinking. Surprised that’s for sure. English brown ale it said in tiny font below the tap list. Clear bronze color with minimal head. Caramelized brown sugar, light molasses and a faint hop character in the aroma. Straightforward flavor of more brown sugar and caramel malts. A bit spicy on the palate. Quite drinkable, light body. Not too shabby. AR (1002) - Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2013
This beer has a definite English flavor with mild caramel. Slightly bitter with subdued malts. It is very drinkable. Naven (1001) - Poway, California, USA - JAN 20, 2008
12 oz bottle. Nice looking dark amber color. No real aroma. Flavor is very much malt-forward, with no real hop presence. Strong, flavorless beer. Where’s the hops? KUEric (979) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2006
12 oz Bottle: Pours a deep dark reddish-brown/amber color. A rather small dark brown head that leaves only a ring around the edge throughout most of the beer. Aroma is strong of coffee and roasted malts, there are some faint touches (though not much of anything really) of prunes, alcohol, and brown sugar. The flavor is sweet and finishes hoppy. Some notes of toasty roasted/burnt malts, prunes, caramel. Gets a little sweeter and brown sugar as it warms. Has a little bite to it.
