fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2013
Medium to dark brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy, off white head that has decent retention and leaves decent lacing. Nutty, herbal, pine and light citrus aroma. Flavor is oily nutty sweetness up front, earthy wood, cereal, dark caramel, spice and hints of pine and herbal hops and roast to the finish. Medium body, with a sticky, but slick feel and light carbonation. Not bad, but its a little boozy (especially for 5.15%ABV and bland other than a vague nuttiness, I really had to search for other tasting notes. Still, I could knock back a couple without complaining.

BeerViking (4387) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle from The Best in Hanwell, pours deep brown with a lasting crema, caramel-toffee and a little gingerbread on the nose, malty and dryish with a light bitterness. Hints of earthy bitter herbs, sultanas and toast. Good, but more muted than the label implies.

HuskerTan (1844) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle. A- Blood, iron, watery, dough, malty. A- Rich mahogany color, clear liquid, tan head. T- Dough, watery, malty, weak. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- This one smelled like a ball of dough that someone was baking then sliced their finger and bled into the batter. Besides this it felt like an all around run of the mill brown. Pretty generic.
