    Not sure how long this one was sitting on the shelf but it tasted like it has been for a while. Pours a dark mahogany colour with more of reddish tint near the top. Head is weak, tan coloured. Aroma is like old stale peanuts with a little bit of toffee. Taste was dirty, a little chewy in fact- again stale peanuts with a hint of toast.

    This brew has a strange aftertaste of which I cannot ID. But it's kinda funky. I had three of these and the rest are sitting in my reefer. I'm not recommending this one.

    Received as part of a Winter Brew package. A decent brew and a good winter brew. Strong aroma and taste are its key features, but I would probably not purchase this beer again.

    Decent brown. Medium bodied for the style. Decent roastiness. Deep brown pour. Malty and easy drinking.

    Eclipse black color, small head. Burnt coffee aroma. Thin tasting brown ale. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee flavor reminiscent of a stout. Slightly spicy. Balancing between a brown ale and a winter warmer, this beer sort of splits down the middle; but, NOT is a good way. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty.

    Well says this is a "chesnut brown "ale..its actually a lot darker..dark garnet in colour in fact ( almost like a Scotch ale)..with a small tan coloured head..I would have given the appearance an extra point had this not been out of style. Pleasant but weakish aroma of malts ..milky , creamy scent also. Nice enough tasste of the sweet malts..mild hop below..smooth This is strange on the palate..its creamy and smooth and at the same time well carbonated..weird. A nice drinkable ale..not excellent..but a good enough to quaff a few I dare say.

    I wasn’t expecting too much here but I was pleasently suprised. An deep nutty and caramel aroma. It poured a dark brown with a moderate beige head. The flavor is a bit on the bitter side but it does have a good malt profile. I taste chocolate, fig, raisins, and nutmeg. The aftertaste is also somewhat bitter. Wow this was a very good brown ale and one I would recommend for some session drinking.

    Deep brown color with a modest head and fair lace, the body medium and the carbonation moderate. Nose is a toasted grain, the middle slightly sweet, the finish is hop bitter and somewhat dry. Robust yet clean, and quite drinkable, another winner from this most exceptional brewery.
