2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells of caramel, malt and coffee. There is a semi biter taste but mostly a coffee and malt flavor. Interesting brown.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: pours with a medium light tan head that retains well, the beer is a very dark black, some ruby hues are visible around the edges when held up to the light
Aroma: coffee, lots of coffee, dark roasted malt
Taste: lots of coffee flavors, has a coffee bitterness on the finish too, not a sweet porter at all
Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste
Overall: I like this beer, a good strong porter that isn't sweet and has a sessionable abv, not very complex but executes well

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de menos de un dedo de grosor. Poca carbonatación. Aroma a lúpulo y café. Sabor lupulado primero, con regusto final a malta tostada y café. Interesante, pero nada que no haya visto antes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice deep brown coloured body with a thick, very fast-dying tan head, about four centimetres at start and goes down to absolutely nothing a few seconds later. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, caramel, toast, grain and wood. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong rich malty flavour with a good deal of caramel, toast, nuts and earthiness. Aftertaste shows some toast, caramel, earth, grain and a touch of candy with a little malt and not much else. Overall, a pretty good brown that borders on a mild ale with some nutty and sweet flavours and little else. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from the Kona Wine Market in Kona, Hawaii [Island], Hawaii on 10-August-2016 for US$6,30 (not cheap) sampled all the way down on the NorthWest corner of the island of Mo’orea in French Polynesia at my hotel on 16-August-2016, for perhaps the first time an ATG beer has been sampled down here!

can. Brown with one finger head. Firstly, the can is pretty hilarious. Medium body with dark chocolate roast and light coffee. I’m typically indifferent about brown ales, but this one really is outstanding for the style -- very smooth and flavorful.

9th July 2016. Can shared at Rosses I Torrades with the RBESG guys. Chocolate and coffee flavours dominate this dark Brown Ale that pour out with a full beige coloured head. Some sweetness in the brew along with a light bitter hoppiness late on. Liked it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a very dark brown color with a huge frothy foamy orange-beige head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was toasty and roasty with nut, wood and a hint of coffee. The flavor was bitter, woody, toasty and malty with a bit of roasted malt and nut. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.
