3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlog rating on 11-08-2012 at Club Soda in Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer has a small tan head that is mostly lasting, transparent reddish brown body, soft carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is light roasted malt, yeasty and smoky. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A good quaffable Brown Ale with a good flavor, worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

Very interesting beer. Pours a nice chestnut brown. Aromas are funk, vegetation, and nuts. Lots of roasted malts smoke too. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Dan’s on January 24. The pour is thin, and brown. It’s pretty translucent as far as browns go, but it’s not completely clear. No head to be found. The aroma is has some malts, some nuttiness to it, and a light note of caramel. The flavors mimic the aromas perfectly. The mouth feel is really thin, to be expected for a brown, and the after taste doesn’t hang around. Not bad, but browns are a bit bland for me

Tap. Pig and fiddle. 12 oz tulip. Dark reddish brown, hazy, with nice creamy white head. Little aroma. Dark fruit sweet and sourness. A bit of fig flavor. Malty and tart at the same time. Nice, better than expected.

Tap at Beer Study. I enjoyed this one a bit more than the other brewpub exclusive, Le pianiste, but only slightly more. Light smokey notes, more bread and caramel, some light wood and toasted grains. Okay, but nothing I’d ever seek out.
