3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. #7 of 31 US Beers for <a href=http://www.americanbeermonth.com>American Beer Month. Rated live, and this was picked up at the bargain rack of a store with no AC, so let’s see. There’s a rich, malty smell upon opening that can come with sitting around. Head thins out quickly and it looks a little like a barley wine. Yes indeed, nutty, with a brown sugar and honey sweetness to the taste. There’s a bit of hop bitterness on the tongue after the first few sips. Light raisin and plum fruitiness. Not easy drinking; this demands your attention all the way down. But nice to contemplate at each sip.

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. 36şSRM.
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. It’s a winning choice in my book.
