Bottle, Pours brown amber with thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet eathy malty caramel, coffee, faint chocolate and light hops. Taste is oak woody caramel, toffee, chocolate with a light hoppy finish. Medium bodied beer with good carbonation. Not my favorite style of beer of this is a decent brew.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a beautiful hazy dark amber in color with a minimal beige head. Aroma is bland--slight notes of malts. Malty in flavor with a slightly Belgian taste. The alcohol isnít completely hidden, but itís not that noticeable. Overall, good for a brown ale, but not quite up to the standards that Iíve set for Bells.

Not a big fan of the style. Light brown with a thin head. Very roasty (seems like victory or biscuit malt). Lightly hopped and very drinkable. Not bad

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Pours hazy dark brown with quite a bit of visible sediment and a thin white head. Smell is malty sweet with a touch of cocoa and caramel. Palate is somewhat watery and thin with a good amount of carbonation. A touch of malty sweetness in the upfront taste. Follow through is somewhat sour, bitter hops. A touch of dried fruit and alcohol warming in the aftertaste. Overall, an okay brown ale, but I will definitely be exploring more in this style before giving it another try.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy nut brown with a thick but quickly disappearing head. Mild cocoa and some berry. Hopping is mild, a little bit of a metallic aftertaste. Ok. Not as good as other Bell's brews.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours.. well umm brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is strange.. like a mix of grapes and asparagus. Flavor is mild with some small hints of chocolate, malty and has a nutty finish. Palate is tingly, and leaves a lasting impression on the tongue. Good brew.
