yngwie (16983) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled at RBESG-06, GTN. Hazy, brown beer with an orange hue and a beige head. Mellow roasted aroma with caramel and sugar. Roasted and caramelly flavor as well, with spces and notes of dried fruits. I could use some more body. The finish is roasted and bitter in a pleasant way. (060826)

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2006
(Bottle) Pours brown with a good-looking beige head. Sweet malts dominate the flavor, but it is by no means cloying. Relatively high level of carbonation. Rich mouthfeel and pretty smooth as well. Definitely a great beer!

Bottle. The best brown ale I have tasted in my brief career. Hands down more body, flavor, taste and aroma than other browns. Very sweet, very nutty, very malty. Delicious - a must try!

BeerloverEJ21 (131) - Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2006
I really enjoyed this beer. On the pour, creamy with a small head. Very dark and translucent. Aroma of carmel, coffee, nutty, and toffee. Initial tastes are slightly sweet, a complex mix of carmel, toffee, little bit of chocolate, maybe some fruit in there. Slightly bitter on the palate, but very refreshing. The flavor is incredibly balanced, and delicate. I dont agree with the posts that say this beer is overpowering or unbalanced, because its not. This may be a drink that youre average beer drinker wouldnt like, but I think its great, and well deserving of the 95% it received.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2006
It was dark brown and cloudy with a quickly disappearing head. The malt flavor seemed stronger than a classic brown and the hops were about what I expected in brown. The overall effect was unbalanced, perhaps influenced by the uncompensated nut sweetness

morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2006
22 oz. bottle from THE beer store in Jacksonville: Total Wine. Pours a nice dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is sweet, with a hint of hops. Flavor is KICK ASS. Nice taste of chocolate and hazelnut. Finish is nice. Without a doubt, THE best brown ale out there. They should put this in a six pack.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head on top. Aroma is malts, hazelnut, brown sugar, and hints of hops. Flavor is nutty, hazelnuts, cappucino, sweet malts, and hints of hops to bitter out just a bit. Definitely enjoy the twist with the hazelnut in there. Defniitely gives the beer great taste. By far the best brown ale out there in my opinion.

emacgee (4671) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Poured a dark brown with a pronounced reddish hue. The head was tan and short lived and left no lacing. The aroma was fantastic, notes of floral hops and complex malt. Tasted lightly of hazelnut, light hops, and sweet malts. As close to a perfect balance as one can get. The palate was a tad thin, but nothing major. The finish was perfect too, a fantastic balance of finishing hops and malts. A fantastic beer.
