4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Limelight. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is mild but mostly chocolate with a touch of roasted malt. Flavor is dark chocolate with some mild bitterness and a nice roasty character as well. Medium bodied with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Overall this was a really good brown ale!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours dark brown with ruddy glints and a creamy beige head. Smells like a very chocolate brown ale. Flavor is extremely chocolate. So much so that the grungy aspect of a typical brown is covered over. Finishes dry and chocolate. Amazing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20 ounce sample on tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe (a few weeks ago). Lightly husky aroma with toasted hints. Mild sweetness also presents itself with some metallic and chocolate hints. Moderately transparent mahogany body with a smallish light tan head and ok lacing present. Starts a little spicy with some hop flavors. Becomes quite roasted and kind of burnt in the middle. Almost like a burnt popcorn character. Finishes with a lot of dryness and some tannin character. Not bad.
