badwhale (420) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
On draft @ their brew-pub. Poured a dark brown, prett much opaque & sparse head. Their list says hints of chocolate & malt, and that’s exactly what I got from it. Smooth & drinkable.


3.4
solidfunk (8949) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2014
High caramel with some roast. Black pour with ok head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Decent balance, but leans a little too much towards sweet side for me. Tap at brewpub.

3.5
ibrubeer (383) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Draft. Typical brown ale. Malty aroma, and nice smooth malty flavor. Middle of the road, but nice.

2.9
stevoj (5036) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Kind of dull and uninteresting, flat. Some nuttiness and roast grain, but overll, less than impresed.

Tap at Nodding Head, PHL, 26/11/13. Extremely dark mahogony brown with a moderate light tan covering. Nose is dark toffee, dark malts, nutty tones, light cocoa, vanilla. Taste comprises orchard fruit, earthy, brown sugar, brown bread dough, nutty twang. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry mellow finale. Harmless.

2.4
GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Pours brown with a taste of chocolate, nuts, and caramel. A pretty decent brown ale.

1.9
NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Draft at Nodding Head. Pours a deeper mahoggany. Nose is terrible. Toasted malts, super estery with plastic. Subtle malts and distant hops. On tasting, more plastic and sloppy notes. Really not a good brown ale. Minimal structure to the malt, lacks balance and the toastiness. Some faint hops.

3.4
BeerandBlues2 (13307) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Tap at the source. Pours clear dark brown with a small, fizzy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is chocolate, nutty and cookie malt with dates. Flavor is moderate malt, light hops and bitterness with dark fruits and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.3
callmemickey (4543) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Medium brown body, large tan head, soapy lacing. Toffee, caramel, some milk chocolate, and light earthy hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, quaffable.

3.4
Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Malty aroma and palate. Interesting, yet unremarkable. And I don’t get the name of it
