Bottle. Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, caramel, notes of nuts and hops with citrus. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is bitterness with notes of sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Love the label deScription. Not Stone long with small writing but still gets a point across. Pours a red-brown. Woodsy hop aroma in the nose. Nice little fizz to it. Bitterness hangs around at a low pleasant level. Quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at CPK with Scopey, Mes and MadMitch. Clear, light brown-gold pour with a filmy head. Classic brown ale nose, lightly roasty and very malty. Alright flavor, light to medium in sweetness, with notes of faint roast and mild cocoa. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with light brown sugar, some cocoa malts, a bit of dryness. Some hops come through nicely in the finish as well. Good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s red-brown with a creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, nuts, light chocolate and fruit. The flavour is moderately sweet with a dry bitterness, that surprises me in a BA. The notes are citrus, grass, light caramel and chocolate, and the finish is dry and bitter. It’s nice, but maybe too hoppy to be a BA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2011 Pours dark chocolate with a bit of a reddish hue. Nice beige head that leaves lacing throughout. Aroma is roasted nuts and chocolate-caramel. Very pleasant aroma. Pretty light bodied with a decent amount of carbonation...was to be expected from an ale like this. Nice, sweet, nutty toffee flavor that finishes with a good amount of hop bitterness. That was a little unexpected. I was interested to try something new and different. This is one I will try again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Rating #47. Nice light sweet malt aroma, no off aromas at all, no hops that I could discern (not that I was expecting any). Very dark brown in color with some red highlights and a light tan head that clung very nicely to the glass. Light toasty bitterness that was enhanced by some nice hops. Nice little aftertaste and a real nice brown. (1498)
