argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 29, 2003
Copper body with minimal beige head. Aroma is mild sweet, nutty, light caramel, roasty. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, some roasty, light caramel. Watery finish detracts from the otherwise solid flavor. Medium body.

jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2007
on tap-pours a light tan head with bubbles and brown color. Aroma is smoky, medium malt. Taste is smoky, medium malt-molasses/caramel, nutty, secondary slightly bitter hops. OK/mild carbonation. Not quite my style but nice.

3.9
shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Bottle. Sweet butterscotch malt aroma. Cloudy reddish brown color with small head. Slightly sweet butterscotch malt flavor but not nearly as sweet as the aroma would lead you to expect. Very light hops finish with smooth buttery aftertaste. A interesting brown ale - I really enjoyed it - but as the other ratings state - if you don’t like butterscotch - avoid this beer.

3.7
hopscotch (11051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Bottle… Hazy, burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nutty, malty bouquet supplies biscuit, cream soda and toasty, chocolaty notes. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with stinging carbonation. Although malt-forward, chocolaty and nutty, the flavor is well-balanced. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter.

daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle. I do believe I got this while in Atlanta last year. An amber/brown pour. Small light tan head. Aroma is very benign with some light nutiness and malts. Flavor has caramel, nuts, and a light finish of floral hops. Ok.

crystal clear dark amber, big frothy beige head, streaky lace, dark caramel malt aroma with a fresh bread character, rich malt flavor, nice caramel sweetness, light nutty chocolate character, touch of roasted, the sweetness with the chocolate starts to take on a nice milk chocolate quality,

chocolate is getting a lot stonger in the flavor along with the nutty character, caramel sweetness is playing a supporting role to bring out more chocolate character,
