2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grabbed this bottle from a "create your own six pack section". Some aroma of sweet malt, but also an unusual aroma, almost like wet tobacco. No born on date on this bottle so can’t confirm how old it was. Nice deep brown color, head is off white, holds well. Sweet roasty malt is the first taste. Has a metallic off taste that I quite can’t pin point. Cereal like taste also. Finishes with a balanced bitterness and notes of dark chocolate. Will try again with a "for sure fresh sample".

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a great nutbrown, and my favorite from WI brewers. Not overly complex, but it always has a fresh, clean taste. Taste and smell is malty, with little hop bitterness.

Definitely love Ale Asylum. This is a great change of pace for them. Dark, clear pour. Not nutty in aroma, but nutty & earthy in taste. Great cold weather choice!

Bottle. Pour is dark brown, with thin mocha head. Aroma is nutty and caramel. Taste is roasted malt, mild nuttiness, some caramel sweetness. Not as robust as wanted.

Maybe infection or under attenuation. Super sweet and tangy mess not a fan of this.

12 oz bottle brought back from Wisconsin. Nice clear deep chestnut brown with a thin white ring. Big rich nutty malty aroma. Not too sweet but woody and malty and smooth. A little brown paper bag flavor at the end.
