3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Brewpub: This one poured a fairly dark brown color. Mine had almost no head on it and what was there left no lacing. There is a nice nose to it. Faint chocolate and nutty notes. Maybe some floral hops. The taste is good. There is a faint nuttiness to it, as well as some chocolate. Medium malt body. Decent and an easy drinker.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at the brewpub. It poured a brownish color. The aroma was of nuts, with a little bitterness and a sharp finish. It was pretty robust compared to a lot of brown ales. A very decent brew.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized dark tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque dark brown colored body. The mild aroma was brown malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of brown malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

GABF 2009, darker brown pour, roasty with somewhat tart sweetness. Lighter bodied with some bitterness. Pretty sure this won a medal here.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown body with a thick, dense and creamy, milky off-white head with lots of lacing. Soft and light aroma of mostly caramel and some dusty cocoa. Little nuttiness and a hint of hops. No real roast to this at all. Flavor is similar and watery until a light roast and hop bitterness kicks in as well as a soft, dark chocolate finish. Decent amount of lingering flavor. Palate is medium bodied, smooth, and creamy. Overall, a fairly decent brown ale. Nothing special or out of the ordinary, but sessionable.
