2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a medium brown/red with a small off white head. Aromas of slight roasted malts, caramel, rasin?, and some earthy hops. Flavor is watery and thin. Much of the aroma comprises the flavor but much more subdued. Ehhh boring and not that good, i’ll pass

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The body looks like coke, but with a huge tan head of foam that lasts a long time. Aromas are pleasant chocolate, bread and vanilla, but with some unwelcome rubbing alcohol. For all its promising beginnings it’s actually pretty disappointing. Really not much here except a little sweet malt and a little bitter herb. Thin and watery body is also a let down. I guess if you get one of these just pour it, look at it, smell it, then walk away?

Bottle. Nose is sweet with a little earthen dust and a goodly amount of roast and slighter chocolate, airy. Pours deep red with a rather large and fizzy tan head. Taste is very sweet, very airy and fizzy without being crisp; light acidity but seemingly not infected, more in line with coffee-type acidity and the present roast. Malt and hops are hidden under the overcarbonation, waiting only allows more booze to come out.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy, off-white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of sour bread, nutty malt and some chocolate. Body is medium and tangy. Taste is very astringent, toasted malt, herbal hops not very pleasant. Finish is long and astringent. It seems the bottle is way past due.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear amber brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, earthy notes, a hint of chocolate, the nose is a bit better than the flavor as the flavor gets soft mid-palate to the finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Best By 06/07/14. Handsome looking mahogany brown pour with decent clarity even through its opaqueness. Off-white head that fades. The aroma is malty, sweet, and nutty like a good brown ale should be. The body is light to medium. The taste is malt forward with a mild bitterness at the end. A nicely done brown ale.
