On tap. Served a dark brown color with a tan head and good lacing. Aroma of malt, nut, caramel and a bit of citrus in the background. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, nut and slight citrus. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth, quite creamy with an earthy feel. Enjoyable beer for the style.

Draft. Dark brown with large off white head. Light roasted malt with citrusy and piney hops. Surprised how hoppy this is.

Bottle. Gigantic head on the pour, very carbonated brown pour. Aroma of earth, brown malt and a nice citrus note. Nice rich malty and nutty flavor, with some earthy hops in the finish. Citrus notes emerge.

This one is dominated by milk chocolate with a roasted malt backbone. Not hoppy like an iPad so this one is mislabeled. Too much chocolate for my liking. Had at home out of a 16oz can.

22 ounce bottle from Binny’s. Chocolate and light malt. Light body. If it was hoppy, no more in a significant way. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml bottle purchased at Binny’s Lincoln Park. Deep brown color, dare I say muddy brown. Aroma is earthy malts, dried leaves, damp top soil, with burnt caramel and cocoa powder.
Flavor is pretty much the same with a slightly amplified hop profile. Hop some more pine to me then anything else with bitterness being only low and mildly lingering. Citra hop doesn’t show up for me much at all. Decent with a dry texture that does make me want to take another sip take.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep ruby red/brown color with a tan head leaving a bit of lacing. Aroma is mostly roasted malt and a touch of hops. Taste is of burnt caramel and roasted malts with some coffee. Don’t notice much of a hop presence. Finish continues with the roasted coffee theme. Not a huge brown ale fan, but this isn’t too bad.
