A richly colored ale of character... Mildly aromatic with the richness of dark, German malts to support the dryish English hops, this brown ale has both substance and character. You'll find the subtle flavor of dark, baker's chocolate, with it's cocoa, nut-like taste, in this complex, but mellow ale. Draft only for March COMPOSITION Malts: 4 types of imported German malts Hops: British East Kent & Styrian Goldings hops Alcohol by Vol. 5.4% AVAILABILITY Draft only for March 2005

    Poured a typical brown-orange color with a normal head and with a touch of lacing (although, nothing impressive there). The flavor was only mildly nutty and was dominated by a caramel type malt. The hops were too strong for this style. The mouthfeel was properly carbonated and medium bodied. Would have another, but there are better brown ales out there. Also had the "cask" version and that one was much more out of character for the style. Served at a warmer temperature and with more carbonation, the hops were much imbalanced with the malts, which isn't my idea of a brown ale (more like an amber ale on cask).

    A dark copper apperance with little head. The aroma was mainly caramel. The flavor was very nutty with some caramel and chocolate notes. The palate was a bit thin but it wasnt too bad for a brown ale.

    The brown ales are my favorite beer type, so maybe I'm overly harsh. It wasn't a bad beer, smallish head but nice lacing, nice appearance...but lacked a little in the taste department. I definitely didn't detect much of the "nutty or caramel" taste that others have noted. Good, but unremarkable. The other 3 people in my party really liked it alot, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

    Poured a reddish brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, caramel, and light citrus (oranges) hoppiness. Taste was nutty and buttery, caramel, light roast, with a resiny, lightly bitter finish.

    This was the first beer I ever had at the Victory brewpub. Their website says it's only available on draught, in March 2005. I guess it came out early! It has dark brown in color with a small head and a little lacing. Aroma was pretty subdued and average for a brown ale, even after it warmed for quite some time. It had a nutty, slightly sweet taste, and a little acidic with a dry hop finish. Fairly mild for a brown, but well balanced and nice. A good beer but not one of their best.
