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.

Had this both on draft and in the bottle today and the draft definitely is a little smoother than the bottle. A decent brown; would be much better if it was a little smoother

Brown pour at dogfish in Portland Maine. Brown sugar and burnt leaves - mild and easy drinker. Pretty good

Light & drinkable brown. Has a decent palate but lacking in flavor. Quite mellow & malty. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is nut with a touch of sweet caramel. Highly active off white head that starts enormous and is reluctant to come down. The body is rich but clear mahogany. Mild nut and spice taste. Malt character is smooth and clean to finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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