3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep mahogany colored beer with a medium foamy light tan head. Fairly sweet nose even for a brown ale with candied nuts, caramel, and milk chocolate. Flavor follows with some medium roast coffee, peanut brittle, and brown sugar finishing with a mild bitterness. Good beer, if a little sweet.

Muddy brown ale. Slight malt sweetness smell to it, no distinguishing smell. Roasted flavors but not very over powering.

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.
