harrisoni (18226) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle drunk at home thanks to MartinT. A top 10 brown ale, wow thanks a lot Martin. Dark brown clear colour with a thick tan head. Suggests it’s over carbonated from how it pours. Very malty. Brown malts. A touch of spiciness. Quite a lot of hop on the finish. A very tasty full brown ale with some American hop on the finish. Some liquorice. It’s good. A bit heavy for me. OK.

mcberko (16936) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours a deep dark brown with a large beige head. Aroma brings out roasted malt and harsh hopping, more like a black IPA. Flavour is full-bodied, with lots of roasted malt, piney hops, and bitter dry cocoa. One of the most flavourful brown ales out there. Excellent.

Lubiere (13667) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2015
A clear brown ale with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, a nice nutty caramel malt with light roasted notes and grassy floral hops, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet roasted caramel malt with light coffee notes, floral resinous hops lingering, very nice and hoppy interpretation. Bottle at Festibiere de Gatineau 2015.

Sammy (11968) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Unique brown ale, fresh bottle from Veux-Tu. Pours mid-brown color with lots of retained head, and leaving a lace sheet.Happy and woody aroma. Lots of roast, tobacco finish, a little cascade hop. Sediment is citrus concentrated hops. This is somewhat of a black IPA reborn in a wood barreled ale.Lots going on.

j12601 (10266) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep brown bordering on black with a medium sized tan head. Big toast, toasted sesame, a touch of roast. Medium bodied, roast, cocoa, a nice amount of toasted sesame comes through again, with a touch of roast bitterness. Long slow toast and bitterness into the finish.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 My Bottom Line:
Earthy hop resins, flower petals and hazelnut caramel gel from aroma to aftertaste in this gorgeous American-style Brown Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tenacious head of foam covers the deep mahogany-hued brown.
-Malts also offer roasted touches. as well as some rye-like angles (Cararye?).
-Hops share citrusy tips before adding more earthiness.
-Body is not thin, not heavy. A beautifully rendered mouthfeel.
-Drinkability is quite high for a 7% brew.
-There are so few world-class Brown Ales out there that this one always comes as a surprise. A superbly tasty one at that!

czar (8895) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2013
pours hazy brown with a very nice light beige head, excellent retention and lacing. piney, sprucey, spicy and nutty malts, dry caramel malts, herbal-grassy, leafy green and citrus, earty, peppery, grainy. soft carbonation, medium body, nice grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. hoppy browns are not my favs - not that refreshing of a brew, but very nicely done!

[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a murky amber-brown with a large lasting frothy tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is hoppy and toasty, quite nutty and a bit chocolaty. Flavour (7+) of toasted malt and lots of hops along with some cocoa. Medium bodied. Really good Brown Ale, nice and hoppy.
