Draft@ Concentric Cafe. Clear dark amber with a frothy tan head, nice lacing. Nice malty caramel and toast aroma. Very smooth medium body. Nice easy drinking flavors of caramel malts with some lightly toasted bread. Not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from John’s Grocery (Iowa City, IA). Pours a hazy hazelnut brown with a small light brown head that seems solid and doesn’t noticeably dissipate. Aromas of sweet dark malts, some fruity notes, a nutty feel, and a mild hoppiness. Initial taste composed of nuttiness, sweet and toasty darker malts, and a pleasant sweetness that I can’t really put my finger on. Touches of cocoa and smoke also. Finishes nice and bitter but great as the hops come into the picture. A really good medium bodied brown ale.

Blue Max Liquors, Burnsville, Mn - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sediment filled dark orange to light brown with a thin, but sticky mocha colored head. Delectably sweet, chocolately aroma with some burnt marshmallow notes in there as well. Delicous nutty flavor some caramel, roasted marshmallows and a touch of bittersweet chocolate. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Another winner from Bell’s.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split with Pat and Tony. Pours a amber, brown body with slight off white lacing. Aroma is delicious caramel and vanilla. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth and soft. Taste is a bit of a let down after smelling the delicious aroma. Still a solid brown, and probably one of the best browns.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2005 Kind of a flat brown ale. I was disappointed, ’cause the Kalamazoo folk turn out some fine ales. The coloring was a clear light brown, but there was little carbonation and almost no head. The aroma was neligible and the flavor was dull and uninteresting.
