For a brown ale, this one had a lot of flavor. Not terribly malty but plenty and a good mouth feel. Not watery like many weak Brown Ales. Some hop but not much. I like it better than most brown ales. Nice deep Amber color. More character than what I expected. Pleasant surprise! tekstr1der (491) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 2, 2015
On tap. 2nd favorite brew from this establishment. Pours brown with a tan clingy head. All malt and caramel in the nose. Flavors are the same – sweet, smooth malty goodness with a characteristic common to most of their brews that (others have noted maple) really works for me. Finish leaves me wanting more. This is what I pick for a growler to go. BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2009
12oz screw-top bottle from the local Hannaford. Pours a translucent dark brown body with a quarter-inch of light tan head. Butterscotch, caramel, brown sugar dominate the aroma. Tastes sweet, with caramel, butter, and chocolate notes. Flavors are definitely understated, which is not uncommon for the style. Light in body, bordering on aqueous, with moderate carbonation. Fairly middle-of-the-road as far as drinkability is concerned, quaffable but doesn’t go down as easy as it could. Overall a solid English Brown. matthewpet (28) - USA - DEC 18, 2006
From the bottle... Great color, rich malty aroma - sweet caramel notes. Pleasant medium body with slightly bitter front end and crisp moderately sweet finish. Great Brown Ale. halfonit (1370) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2010 This is one of my favorites. Whenever I go up to NH I always pick some up. Very smooth brown ale with a good aftertaste. This stuff is excellent on tap. Recommended.

Great brown. Malty, no hops on my tongue, no bitter just agreeable malt. Brown as it should be.

Draft. Pours deep brown mahogany with lite white head that lingers. Cocoa aromas with mild carbonation. Malty chewy brown ale with some hop and coffee flavors

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 By far the best the Woodstock Inn has to offer IMO. Dark copper brown color. Tastes and smells lightly sweet, coco, a hint of roasted nuts. Nice malty taste, don’t notice the hops as much. Sweet after taste that lingers. Very nice beer except for my big complaint- the alc% 4.3 is kinda lame but that should take away from enjoying this beer.
1/12/08 - I just tried a 2nd bottle and it was so awefull i had to throw it out, i have no idea why the difference, it was in my fridge the whole time, i will have to buy another pack for a third try and to re-rate.
