3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from Johnís Grocery (Iowa City, IA). Pours a hazy hazelnut brown with a small light brown head that seems solid and doesnít 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 canít 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a brown body with a lighter tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, fruit and earthy. Flavor is that but the flavor also yields the low abv with this delicate malt blend.

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, ícause 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber brown color with a nice head that prevails over time and light stagnant lacing. Aroma is mainly hoppy, but slightly musky with a touch of malt in the end of the nose. Flavor is spicy with a light nutty malt presence, mainly hoppy in this brown though. Not quite to style, but you get the idea. Thanks ClarkVV

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 Bellís.
