4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/13/2014. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, chocolate, cocoa, toast, toffee, brown sugar, nuttiness, light roast, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, chocolate, cocoa, toast, toffee, brown sugar, nuttiness, light roast, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, chocolate, cocoa, toast, toffee, brown sugar, light nuttiness, light roast, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice brown ale. All around good robustness and balance of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Great brown ale with a creamy texture. A malty beer but not too sweet. The aroma has just a hint of spice. drawback is you can only get it in Oklahoma in a bottle, It is much better out of the keg/ or at the brewery in which I would rate it a 4.8

(Draft at Glacier Park Lodge) Dark brown body with small white head. Roasted malt aroma, some medium roast coffee. Flavor adds some mild bitterness; good acidity. Drinkable and thirst quenching, not very sweet. Medium body, velvety mouthfeel.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a bit of a light brown head. Smells predominately of caramel, chocolate and malt. Those follow to taste, along with a bit of plum and raisin. Just a little hops bitterness. Medium light mouth with some carbonation. A nice beer. Nothing wrong with it, but fairly unremarkable.

After tasting this brew many times over several years I’ve come to really enjoy this Montana beer. Love the dark beer look with a not so heavy taste. Slight background of chocolate at the finish. I keep coming back for more. Very nice beer.
