Draught at Barcade, New York
Dark brown color. It has a quite good aroma combination: balanced chocolate, hop, caramel. The flavor is too dry, with strong chocolate and strong bitterness. Too much roasted malts at the end. Not for me.

Tap at Barcade for the 5th Anniversary Party. A new NY brewer? This was the first Id heard of them. Mildly hoppy, clean, nutty aroma. Brazen and bold. Full flavor, medium bodied, roast and carbonic acid. Kind of fishy. A better than average brown. Ill be looking for more from these guys.

Draft from Waterfront AH manhattan. Poured dark with mild head. Sweet and brown. Right on, more like a porter than an ale.

Growler filled at Consumers in Niagara Falls. Deep ruby brown with a beige head. The aroma is sweet and roasty, with chocolate, hazelnut and a hint of smoke. The flavor starts sweet and roasty, with a smoky side that gets stronger as the beer warms. Lighter notes of chocolate and hazelnuts. Very good. Really more like a lightly smoked porter than a brown ale, but if you want to call it a brown ale, its a damn good one.

The fact that this is a nut brown says it all to me. yes, like others have said, this comes off almost as a porter, it’s thick, it’s rich, it’s got a nuts roasted in chocolate taste with a very smooth finish. You’ll have to like dark beer to appreciate this nutty brown ale.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2008
On draft at brewpub. Poured deep brown in color with absolutely no head or hint of even one bubble. (even when agitated). Aroma of heavy roast, toffee and chocolate malt. Tastes of roasted chocolate, toffee, caramel, and nuts. This one could have passed as a porter. Wishing these had more carbonation.

Nate (4245) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2008
On tap at Wildflower Cafe. Coffee and roasted-burnt malt, caramel and molasses. Mild hop character, even a bit of smoke. Dark brown-black clear with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts with caramel, coffee, and chocolate. Mild bitter grain and some carbonic acidity in the finish. Nutty finish and after. A bit astringent, however.

[email protected] Aroma of chocolate, hint of caramel, deep brown, garnet at the edges, small toffee head. Taste is a chocolate/cola combo, nuty(of course) fine roasted malt notes too. Medium bodied, very well balanced, woody, dry finish. Very enjoyable.
