4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
OMG....maybe the best brown i have ever had, besides buffalo brown by shooting creek brewery in floyd, va. Very creamy, and mild caramel malt taste. A great beer to have after a hoppier brew. Rock on Big daddy!

Draft @ Awful Arthur’s. Pours dark amber with a decent off-white head. Very little on the nose, just a hint of malts. Flavor is very sweet with notes of caramel and nuts. A hint of hops towards the finish. Too sweet for my liking.
