3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 12 oz. can poured to snifters, showing a clear, mahogany brown color, with a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was roasted, with mocha notes, and caramel & toffee sweetness. A little less than medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste added just a hint of smoke/char, and moderate, earthy bitterness that partnered with some dryness for the finish. Decent basic flavor notes similar to the aroma’s, maybe a bit light in texture, but then, it’s a Brown Ale, not a Stout.

12 oz can purchased at Lukas Liquors in Martin City, Missouri. The pour is a dark brown, hazed, with an off white head that was fizzy and falls quick. The aroma is roasted malt, nutty, some softly sweet cracker and the oatmeal that is toasted and clean. The taste is the roast, oatmeal, earthy faint nutty sweet and a gentle mineral in the back. Nice melding of flavors. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation, and a silky finish with the oatmeal. Easy drinking brown, my kind of beer.
