3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark chestnut brown color with faint mahogany edges and a frothy, one finger off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Toasted dark malt aroma with subtle roasted coffee, caramel, toffee and cocoa. There’s a faint grassy hop presence but the nose is dominated by subtle roast and caramel malt sweetness.
On the lighter end of medium bodies with a flavor profile that’s very similar to the aroma. There is a very delicate, crisp hop bite up front but the dominant flavors here is slightly roasted sweet malt. Hints of caramel, toffee and nut countered by autumnal spice and toasted bread. Not very complex but pleasant enough and easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby brown body with a one finger foamy beige head. The nose is sweet and nutty with some light caramel and a minimal huskiness. The flavor is a little on the thinner side, some weak nutty and toasted malts with minimal bitterness. Light bodied and watery in texture with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the best Brown Ale, this could use a boost in the malt department.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium brown with minimal white head. Aroma of chocolate, toast, nuts. A little light on the body but still I would call it a medium body. Malty flavors predominate as they should for the style. Nutty grain is the chief flavor.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Pretty decent brown. Light flair to malts and a little nutty taste. Easy on the tongue but not overly smooth. Bottle
