After two attempts, I’m done with Bayhawk. Nothing more to report. Not worthy of further explanation at this time.

22 oz bottle from BevMo. Oak comes through at the end. Has a pleasant sour note. For five bucks and change this is worth trying.

Cannot believe the poor reviews on this one -- this beer is a STUNNING brown ale, and perhaps my favorite. Nuttiness on the nose carries through with dominance in taste. Chewy malt base, and some spiciness to round things out. Solid A in my book.

A decent, but kind of empty tasting beer. Pours a nice black with a tan head, and a good amount of sediment. Smells awesome, like vanilla, cinnamon and gingerbread. After the smell, you'd expect the taste to be as interesting, but sadly, it falls a bit flat. Starts off smoky, but then there is nothing past that. A hint of molasses, but almost watery after the initial bite. Easy drinking beer. Had in the bottle.

~Light bready roast aroma with a hefty dose of caramel and chocolate. Slight buttery diacetyl.
~Pours a dark brown with reddish tints. lasting off white small creamy head.
~Bready caramel flavor with roast and chocolate. Slight sourness in a good way. Somewhat watery.
~medium bodied, slight slickness, medium CO2, roasty bready finish.
~Decent brew. Not much else to say about it. Would want to move on to something else after drinking this one.

Bottle at Aaron’s. Thanks man, I think. Pour is murky brown with a small cream-colored head. Roasty, bready, light coffee, earthy, vegetal, and grassy aroma. Taste is cocoa, bready, malty, slightly tangy, espresso, graham crackers, and weird tang. Light body with high carbonation. Meh.

Bottle @ home, via some trade. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Spicy minty, dark fruity, mild chocolate, a bit piney aroma. Tangy cherry garbage flavor with a hint of meat drippings.

Bottle: caramel brown with medium-sized off white head. Getting a light caramel aroma. Flavor has a tartness with some caramel and chocolate. Ok flavor, not much there however.

Dark brown color, frothy, oily feel, medium body, heavy cloying sweetness, medium sourness. I wish there was a little more bitterness. I rarely throw out beer but I couldn’t finish this one. I couldn’t get over the sourness combined with the hint of rancid flavor. I told myself I was imagining the rancid, meaty flavor but it kept coming back. I tossed out half. It had some interesting flavors too. Certainly wasn’t a boring light beer. But won’t be drinking this one again.
