EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 27, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Citrus-y hop aroma and flavor. Very little malt aroma... Sweetish malt flavor, with some light caramel and toast. A little nutty flavor in finish and aftertaste. Hop flavor is pretty nice, but theres a somewhat harsh bitterness in aftertaste.

10/29/13: Getting more malt aroma: Mostly toasted malt. Toasted flavor seems more prominent, too... Not noticing the bitter aftertaste.

Iphonephan (6818) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2017
From a 500 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy mahogany with an ecru head. Nutty aroma. Flavors of coffee and nuts. Moderately bitter roast finish

3fourths (9314) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2016 From bottle its clear brown with a lasting tall head. Aroma seems tainted by American hops, making it smell of grapefruit, brined cherry, resin, marzipan, fruit cake, even cayenne powder. Medium bodied with light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Decent savoriness across the middle and into a lengthy finish, where more dusty bread crust notes emerge. Its a shame that character is hidden in the nose, because the malt base seems sounds here. But it seems too affected by misplaced new world hops, which begin to take on a cedar shaving and pet pee odor.

books_n_brews (162) - Baltimore-ish, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Pours dark brown near to black, no head to speak of. Smells of toasted walnuts. Bit harshly bitter, not coffee but just lasting tongue miscues that wont go away. I like darks but Id pass on ever having this one again.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Big bottle at Snowbird. Nice brown body with tan head. Nose is toasty and malty. Quite nice. Flavour of malts too, roasted nuts and caramel and biscuit notes. Good one with dinner.

This one wasnt for me. Pours dark brown, taste of dark malty flavors not hoppy or bitter.

poisoneddwarf (2493) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2015
500 ml bottle. Smells a little old--caramel malt past its prime, perfume, cooked vegetables. Pours clear brown-orange with a dissipating beige head that falls into a ring of big-bubbly foam. Taste is a tad better; its bittersweet, roasty. Im not getting any nuttiness in aroma or taste. Not good. I dont see an expiration or born-on, but I would bet this is pretty old.

deyholla (11161) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle thanks to Secret Santa! Pours a clear deep amber with a brown hue and a grayish brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a decent amount of nuttiness supported by grain and bread notes. Flavor begins starts with bread and nuttiness and has a slight growing sweetness through the finish.

patrick767 (4047) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2014
bottle - Pours dark brown with a lingering tan head and lacing. It smells of toasted caramel malt and taste the same with minimal hops bitterness and a lingering toasted finish. Its medium bodied, robust, and overall a good brown ale.

bhensonb (14956) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle from the Harris Street Utah state store. Pours brown with a slight beige/tan head. Aroma is nutty/spicy/malty. Med body. Flavor is lightly greasy nutty with some moderately dark roasty malt and spicy/grassy hop. Works very well. Nice.

MikeJslc (778) - USA - MAY 12, 2014
Deep copper/light brown, clear, persistent beige head. Aroma of grainy, nutty, bready malt with a little bakers chocolate. Flavor: dark bread crusts, cocoa, nutty and toasty malt, light piney hop flavor, a somewhat grainy finish. Malty in balance, medium-full bodied. Tasty brown ale.
