marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Dark reddish brown color with tan head. Roasted malty flavors and aroma. Light bitter finish that dries out a bit. Flavor is dominated by the roasted flavors of the malt, which are good. Mild palate, even with a good finish. Good.

Tastes of yeasty roasted malts, caramel and cereal with a little spice and some hops. Not my favourite class of beer but this was pretty good.

Pours medium dark brown, chestnut color. Head dissipates rather swiftly. Nose is fairly weak for some reason. Palate is rather surprising, a whop in your face after a dissappointing nose. Big roasty flavors with a suggestion of brown sugar are present. Finish is medium to short. Makes a nice refreshing beer during the warm months when you’re not in the mood for a heavy winter warmer, but still would like to reach for the darker side of things.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle at Novare Res. Pours a lovely brown with reddish clear body. Well the bottle was gone in like 5 minutes so they’re doing something right! Supremely drinkable, i’d wager this would be a killer session beer. Aroma is roasted malt, sweet brown sugar, and caramel. Flavors are very comparible. Sticky sweetness at first, with a nice mild finish. One of the best unflavored browns i can remember having!

AnG_BrgNor (645) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 12, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown colour, small head. Aroma is chocolate, some malt and some roasted malt. Taste is dominated by chocolate, like a cheap chocolate pudding almost (weird for a beer I think), some malt and some licorice. Not impessed.

Huge thanks to jayg for sharing this one with all of us at the Orlando gathering.

Pours a brown body with ruby highlights. Off white head with medium lacing. Aromas of nuts, sweet malts, dough, roast notes. Flavor is very nutty and sweet, with a nice malt background. Finish is medium lenght and sweet, thin palate but not watery. A nice brown ale, and one I enjoyed more than their IPA.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Black pour with some frothy bubbles forming for head. Sweet thin nutty and biscuit aroma. Also some floral aromas coming through. There’s a yeasty, nutty flavor with some faint hops in the finish for the flavor. Fairly thin and very refreshing. A great session beer.

500ml bottle. Aroma: Surprisingly roasty in the aroma. Toasted nuts, caramel, light chocolate, and some biscuit and bread notes. Appearance: Deep reddish brown in color and clear. Light beige head was full and foamy with good retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: The roastiness continues into the flavor. Roasted malt, toasted nuts, caramel, cola, and chocolate. Some light hops into the finish. Medium-light bitternes and a medium-dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Nice brown ale. Roastiness was really nice. Easy drinker.
