3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out a deep brown color with a frothy, almost nitro-like head. Lighty roasty, almost smoky aroma. Flavor is deep and malty. Roasty, a little smoke and not sweet. Flavors are well balanced by the hops. Some earthy and chocolate notes. Smooth and very drinkable, like a good brown ale should be. Slight bittering finish.

Nice beer. Nothing out of the ordinary but nice and solid. Tastes like a good old fashioned beer. Malty with a hop bite, nicely balanced. Good stuff.

355ml bottle. Pours a nice brown leaning toward copper colour with a small eggshell head that leaves a little lace. Sweet cereal grain and a slight sugary quality on the nose. Mostly roasted malt on the palate with some of that cereal grain coming through. Dry shortish finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 22 fl. oz. bottle with no expiration date or lot code. It pours a decent looking brown with good clarity but little in the way of head. The head is about a finger thick of silky tan but it dissolves quickly. It comes with a good malty and slightly nutty aroma very typical of a brown ale but more enticing. The taste boasts a likeable nuttiness with a good dose of malts and a much thinner dose of hops. Overall, a likeable beer.

Bottle. Brown with a thin off-white head that settles to a ring. Faint aroma but malt and nut found. The flavor had nut, toasted malt, and a slight hop undertone. Light body and a light hop aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bottle from Canals Hainesport. Pours a deep dark mahogany brown with a small to average sized head. Aroma of wet bread, d honey, stale chocolate, old caramel and crushed old flower petals. The body is thinner and bubblier then I would have liked. Flavor is bitter sweet with notes of stale chocolate, weak honey, grassy dry hops and rotting orange fruit. Meh its drinkable, actually thought it was better but with a little warming this one is dropping off.

Deep brown, almost porter-like pour. Nutty aroma and a rich, nutty, malty taste to match. Quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow, really minimal head from a pretty vigorous pour. Dissipates very quickly and leaves a few scattered bubbles. Roasty and spicy aroma with some smoked malts, dark fruit and a bit of molasses. Color is the truest brown I have ever seen in a brew. This is truely a brown ale. Smooth and malty flavor that starts a bit fizzy and ends pretty dry. Some tea leaves, cinnamon and roasted malts and a bit of vanilla. Somewhat more complex than your typical brown ale. Finishes dry and spicy. The brew is much spicer than I expected. Decent.
