On tap at the Barrington Brewery. Nice dark brown, so dark it’s almost black, color. Kind of bitter, but otherwise no real perceptable taste. Very watery!

Has a dark reddish color with very little carbonation and a roasted smell. Taste is smooth roasted malt and finishes with little bitterness, but is a bit too thin for me. Overall it is a good brew, but I prefer heavier dark beers.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells better than it looks. Brown beers are generally one of my favorite styles, but this one is weak and thin. Bitter - no hint of caramel like the description promised.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Strong coffee aroma and flavor. Some nutty flavors, smooth bitterness, and definitely maintains its positive qualities after a few pints.
