12oz. Bottle: Fain, slightly tart aroma of malts, tart fruit, cherries, and medicine. Poured deep amber/copper in color with a medium-sized tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling to very sparkling. Many tiny, small, and medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly tart and slightly sweet. Tastes of tart fruit, cherries, malts, malted milk, and some cocoa. Medium body. Thin, lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Tart, cherry, malt, and malted milk finish. Much more a sour than a brown ale.

Tea brown, with a fizzy and short lived head. A little trimming of lace left behind. Sweet maltiness, a nice toasting, a slight nuttiness that makes for a pleasant aroma Taste is unfortunately not as pleasant. Quite a watered down maltiness - mouthfeel is rather watery, as well. Slight roasted nut flavour, but almost ignorable, really. If it were a little richer, it would be a decent session brew. If looking for a swigger, it could be a candidate, but there are better out there.

Pours out amber in color with no real head. Aroma is of some malts, slight bitterness and some caramel. Taste is some caramel, sweet malts and hops, mouthfeel is a bit watery. Overall alright, but forgettable.

Once again, Barley Creek fails to impress. Their beers are way to safe. They seem to say, yeah we want to make craft brews, but are really afraid they might not be well received. The aroma was present but not amazing, w/ some malt scent. Appearance was a brown color, thin head. Itís flavor is a bit to watered down, it doesnít make me beg for more. Itís smooth. Again a very forgetable beer. I was hoping for more

Bottle. Dark amber in color, with slight white head. Very little head. Nutty, malty aroma. Slight nut taste to start with a bit of malty. Medium body. Taste builds, then leaves a nice dry aftertaste with a hint of hops.

Bit nutty, toasted and OK. Nothing to write home about, with just something a bit hard to put your finger on that was out of place. Reminded me a bit of Franziskaner Dark that some people call "funky" but itís just a bit of odd chocolate mixed in. Bit murky as well. From a case of their sampler.

Toasted grain nose, brown color. Nutty grain flavors at first, caramel sweetness. Like the Schwarzbier there was a butter note that I didnítlike.
