3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a gorgeous Friday afternoon after eating at Hot Dougs, which was awesome. Appearance is a relatively clear copper amber with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly nutty and sweet, faint chocolate notes. Taste is decent, definite cocoa and chocolate notes, light nutty. I’m worried that I have an old can and it’s not really that fresh. Will have to re-rate at a later date.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml can from Tanakaya @ Mejiro. Pours dark brown, almost black - with a thin beige head that dissipates fast. Beer leaves nice lacing to the glass. Aroma is actually quite simple and not too exciting - it has a bit of toffee, some warm alcohol, and soft roast malt. Taste is smooth and full of roast flavours, chocolate, cocoa. Body feels velvety and this certainly is a very drinkable, yet interesting beer. Could session this without any difficulties.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Canned. Dark ruby brown with thick tan head. Aroma has lots of mellow malt notes, nuts, toffee and light rostiness. Taste soft and malty, nuts, roasted notes, light smoke and just enough bitterness to balance it out. Really nice, one of the best brown ales I’ve had
