3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I lived in Boulder for 4 and a half years, and I didn’t try this until I moved to MI. Kind of disgraceful. At any rate, this was a tastey brown ale. Well suited to drinking with a nice burger with Worcestershire souce.

Transparent brown/mahogany. Creamy head disolves quickly. Nutty sweet malt aroma. With a very strong nut taste almost too much so. Finishes very clean and crisp.

Auburn ruby color, small lacing & head. Nose of toffee, butter & light hops. Malty body with a light bitter balance. Tastes more watery but easy drinking & full bodied. Finishes smoky.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown color with medium size head. Slight chocolate aroma with nutty rasted flavor in the mouth. Weak kind of plain finish that leaves your mouth dry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2005 Tastes a lot like Old Jubilation to me with less hops on the front end. A tasty brown for sure. Lots of nutiness. A tad dry on the palate is the only real negative. Having said that, I’d drink it again.

On tap at Andy’s. Deep brown in color with a nice tan head. Chocolately and nutty aroma. Full bodied. Roasty. Finish is clean. Vanilla like flavor. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This looks good. Fairly dark, brown with lots of red to it. Thick head of light tan that peaks and falls ovet the top of the beer. sheets of sticky foam on the glass as it recedes.
Sweet and nutty aroma, suggestions of a nice Porter.
This has a flavor of dark toast after it has been in the mouth and the enzymes have converted the starches to sugar. More roast flavor than most Brown Ales.
Nice fading finish has a bit of hop bitterness to it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
For a brown ale, this had an unusually large, soapy head atop a solid medium-brown body. Lots of carbonation. The aroma is chocolatey and nutty. The taste is caramel with allot of chocolate, nuts, and vanilla. Clean finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ve passed this over on the shelf many times thinking I had already rated it. I was wrong. Pours a dark brown ruby color with tan medium-sized head that lasts a while. Not a bit of carbonation. Leaves considerable lacing. Aroma is a variety of malts along with some hops. Flavor is roasted and nutty but not as much as a stout. A very decent brown ale, even though I’m generally not a fan of the style.
