(old notes, no date) A standard at triumph, this brown is on the sweet side. Dark brown pour, nutty aromas, and sweet. More like a Moose Drool than a Sam Smiths. Nuts linger and a very light roast; maple, molasses. It’s good, but not very satisfying, not sticky, kind of thin. Brown ales are a weird style.

I’m hoping this comes back around again soon at either location. It’s been awhile so the memory of the taste isn’t super fresh in my mind, but I want to give it another go.

Cask-conditioned sample at the New Hope, PA location. Reddish-brown, clear, smallish drying head. Lovely almond-hazelnut nose, decent nuttiness and cherry-vanilla notes thorough the flavor profile, but unfortunately quite watery at the finish. OK.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Cask. Brown in color, with a nice tan head. Aroma is roasty. Flavor is dominatred by special grains, such as chocolate, roasted barley, crystal and amber malts, giving a lttle more roasty and almost cloying flavor than I expected. Almost more like a porter. Drinkable and OK.

Really nutty and roasty in flavor. Tasted more like a porter, than a nut brown. Good beer but not one Triumphs best beers. Dark brown in color with a lasting head. Enjoyable.

This looks to be a beautiful dark red/brown beer with a classical head. The beer is smooth, but a bit flat. Unfortunately, I found this beer a bit boring with little overarching character or distinct flavors. Bitter ending, in more ways than one.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 One of the best browns I've ever had. Extreme nuttiness on the back of the tongue. Moderately hoppy, but the malt rules here.
