Clear brown. Aroma is malty and roaster. Light bodied with not too much flavor. Malt profile with a good amount of carmel sweetness. Not much going on. Ok.

Pours a massive, unstoppable heap of dense off-white foam. Underneath there is some brown liquid, but I can’t quite reach it. Trying harder, i get to the rather bland nutty and metallic flavor - like my first attempt at home-brewing a brown ale so many years ago. Big fan of their coal porter, but this is not quality.

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.

Good middle of the road beer. Pours deep brown, no head. Slight nut aroma, smooth and easy drinking.

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.

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.
