4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is one of my favorites for drinking with barbecued foods or on tap at a grillhouse. Roasty aroma. The body has essences of caramel, chocolate, and coffee in a fine balance with malt. Smallish head on tap, slightly brown shade. Definitely a go-to beer in the summer or early fall when eating meat; excellent once you get tired of lighter beers as the weather cools down.

Had this on tap in Bozeman. I am a big fan of brown ales and this did not disappoint.Nice brown with a pleasant caramel aroma and flavor. HInts of chocolate finishes it off. One of the better browns I have had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Twelve ounce bottle poured medium bark brown with a hint of red, small white head with yarn-like lacing. The nose was of molasses and hay; the taste, of brown sugar, honey, and wheat with faint citrus. The body is silky and smooth and of medium weight with mild carbonation. The finish was both sweet and sour. I think I tend to rate browns more harshly due to my preference for hops and wheat, but I think I still prefer Rogue Hazelnut and even Samuel Smith Nut Brown to this.

Not a bad beer. Far from my favorite brown ale but it was still alright. Wouldn’t recommend it to anyone but would have it again.

Not too dark, but not too light. Not bitter and no heavy aftertaste. This had everything I love in a beer but just did nothing to put it over the top. Smooth drinking beer none-the-less.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of carmel, coffee, with a slight roasted-nutty, woody flavor. Appearance is a dark brown, clear color with mild off-white head. Light, sweet-bitter taste with a hint of sour. Light, slightly oily texture with some light carbination and a milt bitter finish. Overall a good beer.

Beer cost is about 8.22 a six pack. Beer has a dark clear appearance. Taste is of a light chocolate coffee.
