AirForceHops (7792) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2014
4 oz. Draft [email protected] Amesbury Ale House. Dark brown, mahogany in color with thick head in the sample glass. Aroma is piney hops, earthy nuttiness and light chocolate. Pleasing aroma.

Very hop forward Brown ale. Pine and earthy hops upfront with some moderate roasted notes in the center. Light chocolate and burnt nuts gives the brew a nice balance of the blast of hops in the front end. The finish shows herbal hop notes with a decent amount of pine resin. The body is medium with the carbonation giving a mild creaminess to it. The drinkability is really high for a brown. I could drink more of this and for me I could session at 7%. Really nicely made.

Pine, subtle purple grapes, toast. Deep dark ruby with a mostly fading head. Bready, fruity, piney, bitter, subtle cherry cola notes. Medium bodied, chewy, sticky.

Dogbrick (13748) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Sample at Station 2. Pours a hazy chestnut color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roast malt, pine and hops in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, resiny hops and citrus. The finish is sweet with a cocoa and malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

Possibly my favorite brown ale. Not too sweet with good use of hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jredmond (8626) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Draft at Valhalla. Pours a deep blackish brown with thin brown foamy head, less than one finger. Aroma is light and faint but super fresh hop. Mouthfeel is light and bitter upfront and finishes smooth and thin; notes of fresh clean hop, melon and very light rounded malt character. Almost tastes like a very thin bodied black IPA. Really, really nice sessionable brown ale.

3.4
solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Smells like citrus hops, some roast in here but mostly like a thick hoppy beer and not so much a brown. Finishes with medium bitterness. Pours cloudy brown. Tap at Rustico, miscalled Left Hand The Deuce.

BrewBoxer (2664) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Draft at mudville9. Pours a deep brown color with a light head. Very flavorful and slightly fruity. Not bad

Scopey (15652) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle-can from BrewDog. It pours deep brown with a medium beige head. The nose is earth, toast, toffee, light spice, cocoa, light coffee, umami notes and wood. The taste is earthy, roasted malt, pine, varnish, peppery, toffee, toasted brown sugar, peanut, citrus peel, cocoa and some alcohol warmth with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Nice depth of flavour, well rounded and good bitterness. Another winner from Oskar Blues.

Acknud (1082) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Well rounded brown. Aromas come together with roasting nuts and malt. The hops really come through, Medium carbonation.
