Big bottle from Mike. Aroma of chocolate bar and malts. Pours brown and gritty with a nice medium white head. Taste is chocolate, malt, malt, and more malt. This is a deliciously frothy malt bomb of a brown ale. Really enjoyed this one.

12oz bottle. Filtered ruby amber-copper color. Thin, soda-like head. The aroma is mildly nutty, with lot of caramel sweetness. Leaning into what Iíd guess it amber malt a little too much..there are cherry vanilla tones that I donít really want or expect from the style..but as I sip, it grows on me. It is balanced, with a nice spicy hop accent. Not really nailing it, but an enjoyable beer, sort of antiquated.

Brown color with small tan head. Aroma of malt and grass. Medium body. Flavor dry malt, a little nutty, pleasant and not complex. Nothing particularly bad, or good to say, decently average overall.

Kind of oddly sour and malty sweet without too much else going on. Another boring brown that doesnt do it for me.

Nut brown ale - a bit of hop at the start then a malty finish. Finish isnít very long but this is a nice session beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Nose is strongly roasty, chocolate and lots of burned notes, with an oily malt slick and some mild rotting fruit. Deep chestnut body with ruby highlights and a tan head. Taste is above average in sweetness with ash and roast, some burned notes -- reminds of a Schwarzbier, really, with some additional chocolate and nutty notes. Crisp light-medium body with a bit of a smoky finish. Hops are minimized. Alcohol is perfectly controlled, but itís too sweet for me. A good flavor and well done on the whole.

Pours a dark, translucent copper with low turbidity and a thin, white head that quickly fades. Moderate lacing. Roasted, nutty aroma. Light, slightly effervescent and thin mouthfeel -- a little richer than a Newcastle, but not as full as a Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. Nutty, caramel flavor. A good representative of the style.
