Nice rich brown ale. Darker than most brown ales. Just turning the corner from brown to black ale. Slight sweetness to start followed by roast malt and a bit of smoke. Ends with very slight bitter. Mixed half a glass with a sour red. Quite nice actually!

Poured into a pint glass. Lots of roasted malt, chocolate malt, and a tinge of grassy hops. Sweet, slightly hoppy on the finish. Solid, but not Avery’s best effort.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nutty aroma, nice sense of caramelzation. A little banana but kinda liked it. Pretty good medium carbonation. Extremely drinkable. Nothing really outstanding but good beer none the less. Would drink again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a brown with a medium tan head. The aroma is malty without anything really standing out. It has caramel, bread, nuts, and undertones of chocolate and vanilla. Taste contains caramel and nuts with some mild chocolate. Its kind of sweet, and there is some tartness as well. Slight chocolate aftertaste. Light in body, with a thin, almost watery texture, and being about average in carbonation. This one isn’t all that special.
