3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can pours a clear chestnut brown with small off-white head and a little lacing. Underpowered aroma is malty and nutty with a bit of raisins and perhaps chocolate. Taste is slightly bitter with a slight metallic aftertaste. Body is light to medium with sudsy carbonation. There’s nothing terrible wrong with this, but I doubt I’ll try it again. The name is the most memorable thing about this beer to me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle. The roasted aroma consists of caramel and chocolate bar notes with subtle herb character. It’s a rich, dark brown color with a sudsy off white, medium ring and a light lace. It’s taste consists of a medium sweetness and light bitterness. The thinnish beer has a sudsy carbination and a medium, malty body consisting of caramel and chocolate with roasted nutty hints, and a slightly herbal finish. There’s a light malt, and herb aftertaste. One of my go to winter session beers.

I’ve had these on tap up north at a bar called lucky moose. Didn’t remember too much specifically about it so picked up a single bottle to review. Very good stuff, nice toasted malts with hints of caramel and chocolate notes. Beers like this are nice change ups for me vs. The IPA and APA I normally drink. Yum. Good time of year for this beer to 1st day of December in Minnesota. Pretty easy drinking and at 5.1% pretty session able.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This one was a real surprise. Waited a long time to try this. Medium brown color with a nice head. Aroma is weird. Smells cheap and grainy. Taste is slightly metallic, some malts with a very unpleasant aftertaste. Disappointing brown ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 355 ml can. Pours a clear chestnut brown with a small off-white head. Faint aromas of raisins, caramel and malt. Taste is gentle dark fruit and more caramel with a slight coffee bitterness. Fairly short finish with a light fruity aftertaste. Straightforward but very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light brown with a tan/beige head with a slight haze. Caramel and toffee on the nose with some spice and fruity hop esters. Toffee and caramel dominate the flavour with a surprising hop presence. Roasty flavours also emerge. Nothing really that makes this beer amazing, but it is solid. Great to sink a few

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A good beer, a bit to much hop aroma/flavor and not quite enough bitterness to balance.
