Bif (2237) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle- Pours an amber color with a tan head that fades slowly with good lacing. Aroma is sweet and a bit nutty. There is some caramel and fresh grain in the background. Initial sweetness of caramel and some dark fruit. A fairly clen finish with a lingering sweetness. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Nice balance but a bit too sweet. Smooth and goes down easy. Hard to drink more than one due to the sweetness.

It took a while to get into the brown ales but it finally Ďgrewí on me and this is a nice beer to have on those fall days beside a roaring fire. Itís reddish, copper color sports an off-white foamy head which settles down much more quickly than I would like. It has a nice caramel aroma with a creamy, smooth body with a faint grainy finish. I enjoyed it for a couple of beers but anything more than that and the flavor really begins to decline.

smaynard6000 (1152) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Pours a dark brown color with a thick white head. Aroma is a bit earthy and a bit of caramel, too. A bit on the fizzy side with some sweet flavor. Average.

This one didnít do it for me, lifeless in the glass, nutty and caramel notes in taste and aroma.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a very light brown with a small, foamy off-white head. The nose has some stale hop notes, a slight vegetal note, some nuttiness, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is a little English in style with a bit of butter and caramel. There is a light undercurrent of fruitiness and stale, papery hops. This one may be a bit past itís prime, but itís still not terrible. Medium bodied with average carbonation leading to a medium, lightly fruity finish. I actually think this brew comes across better than the ratings belie.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 19, 2011
Deep russett coppery brown with caramel and crystal malt sweetness prevalent on the nose. Thereís something amiss with the nose though. Itís not vegetal or appley, but a little bit earthy. Maybe it didnít travel particularly well - this is 8,000miles from home after all. I donít know, itís just a bit... meh. Sweet and nutty as a brown ale ought to be, a bit bready. No major flavour faults, but not a lot else to comment on. Pleasant enough but not especially memorable. A touch astringent an smoky on the finish.

wlajwl (6748) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2011
I had this several years ago and it was average in every way. A little bit of malt and not too sweet but nothing really flavorful. Not really bad but much better brown ales out there, although I am surprised to hear it isnít made anymore.

3.2
BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Pours reddish brown with a foamy off-white head that lingers briefly. Aroma of raisins, malt, wheat bread, and faint herbs. Palate is a little thin, with average carbonation and short finish. The sweetness of molasses and maybe caramel defines most of the taste, but it tapers off quickly with a hint of hops in the finish. A good session ale.

brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 10, 2011
A: The beer pours a dark amber color with a finger of off-white head sitting on top. S: Intensely sweet on the nose with a big time dark fruit character, possibly prunes and raisins. Some toffee, caramel, and brown sugar gives additional sweetness as does the hint of chocolate. T: Sweet toffee and brown sugar are present all the way through. Some mild dark fruit notes and perhaps a hint of nuttiness and toasted bread. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: A little too sweet and not much else going on.
