Mandlbrot (3) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Aroma - pleasant, but simple - mainly chocolate, but some nut, licorice, and raisin Appearance - Orange/Brown. Clear with limited, tan head and minimal lacing Taste - Light sweetness, very little hops flavor I can detect. A hint of sourness at the end. Palate - light to medium body. Thin/dry feel. Good carbonation. Honestly not blown away. A good beer, but nothing out of the ordinary for me. I would drink again, but have other browns i would choose first. Definitely better than Newcastle, but overall simple and no surprises.

355 ml bottle. Med gashåndtag. Dark amber colour with a medium sized lightly tanned head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, nuts, fruits, candid sugar and a lightly toasted note. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes slightly drying with caramel malts and fruits. Liquorice. A nice classical Brown Ale.

kaserov (800) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 29, 2017
Color marrón, translúcido y rojizo si le da la luz, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de tres dedos de grosor (pequeñas burbujas y buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura oleosa. Aroma a malta tostada, caramelo, cacao, frutos secos, reminiscencias herbals. En boca mucho caramelo y menos cacao, azúcar, algo de avellana y nuez. El sabor va ganando profundidad a medida que uno va bebiendo. Mucho fruto seco en postgusto. Brown Ale de manual.

Thick and mild. very heavy in the belly. tastes great but nothing staggeringly fantastic. really it just seems like its made authentic. not a bad price either.

Davros IX (381) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle at the Rising Sun in Smithfield. Poured well with a big foaming head and a nice dark colour in the glass. It was served way too cold and it took a while for the flavours to really appear. Wood, malt, a definite nuttiness and a sweet mouthfeel. As it warmed the aroma really started to appear and there was a definite hint of hazelnuts. A pleasant beer, but by the end the sweetness was a bit too much for me.

Poores dark brown but minimal head. Strong aroma of caramel, chocolate black current and - nuts. Taste is sweet with a good bitterness. Very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (1115) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Pours a clear, dark amber with a medium, off white head. The aroma is a heavy balance of nuts, earthy malts, and floral hops with some weaker bread and vanilla. The taste is a little sweet and dry and unfortunately, kind of weak. Having both toasted and earthy malts, its big on nuts and toffee. Minor licorice and raisin are found as well. Easy toffee aftertaste lingers. Medium bodied, thin in texture, adn average in carbonation. Not bad really. Just not all that special.

Beachmaster (566) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Bomber into a pint. Pours a clear dark brown, with a medium khaki head that lasts, leaving good lacing. Nose is dark malt and nuts. Taste follows, with a long finish and medium mouth feel. Moderately bitter, not at all astringent. Classic British brown. Good stuff, easy drinking.
