3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The chocolate lab on the can is perfect image for this beer. Transparent brown pour. Aroma is of roasted nuts and malts. Taste follows with nice warm and sweet malts and then a bitter chocolate after. A bit much on carbonation I thought, but still was very drinkable.

Aroma is amazing. Nutty, roasty, boozy, and a cognac scent. Nice brown and reddish color. Taste is a bit watery but still nice and roasted malts. Can

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
5.5%ABV. Brown Ale.
Poured out brown. 36ļSRM.
Nose has nutty fullness. Milled chestnut flour. Some residual malt funk.
Mouthfeel is light soupy. Palate has roasted chestnuts, black bread, browned wheat toast. There is always an element of old leather in the palate and in the aroma for me whenever I taste a brown. Light hops in the finish.
Finish is beery.
Good brown ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
DATE: July 31, 2016... OCCASION: Just enjoyed a nice evening with Judi and Jeff Grow... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... pours a dark brown, almost cola black body with a fleeting two-finger off-white head that rings to a string of filmy bubbles... sugary maltiness mingles with chocolate and vanilla to suggest a flavorful first sip... black licorice, light bread and molasses also leave hints... an incredibly drinkable beer, with a medium-bodied mouth feel that kicks the experience to life... soft, smooth, and apologetic as it leaves--the aftertaste is slightly lactic and brief... vanilla, cocoa, sweet sugars, light hazelnut and cola make for a confident, appetizing experience... Avery delivers on its goods, and this is no exception...

Pours up a murky dark brown, with a dense tan head. Nice sweet aroma, with molasses, caramel, and mild leafy herbal hops. Creamy medium body with soft carbonation. Molasses, caramel, and mild hops on the palate, soft finish. Itís a winning choice in my book.

Malty, cocoa, chocolate aroma. Taste is a malty brown with chocolate notes and a good amount of hops balancing the malt. Full flavored, well made brown. Not overly malty or hoppy. Well done on a normal style by Avery. Really nice brown.

Hmm, more nutty in flavor than your typical brown. Decent brown pour w/ thin head & good lacing. The aroma has a very nice dark malt & nut scent. The taste is somewhat dry for a brown & slightly uninteresting. There isnít much chocolate or sweetness to properly balance it. Itís still rather drinkable but not at the top of itís class!
