3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of toffee, coffee and light hints of chocolate. Deep brown color with ruby hilites. Beige head that leaves quickly with some light lacing. Medium+ mouthfeel. Sort of chewy, a bit of sour, along with chocolate malt, not sweet. There is enough hop to balance the dark malt. A rather dry finish. Not nearly so harsh as most browns, but not so smooth as Newcastle by a long bit. Maybe a bit of fruit in the finish. Pretty tasty ale.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 355ml can - thanks dwyerpg!
Nice rich roasty aroma, savoury, a bit of soy. Watery palate, carbonation high. A touch yeasty. Bit dull, just some savoury malts. Nothing to really grab onto here, and the carbonation was offputting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in Billings, MT. Dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate sweet nutty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium sweet flavor with a smooth sweet finish that lasted. This beer would go well with a good cigar.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Sweet malty aroma, with hints of roastiness. Roastiness much stronger in the taste, with coffee and chocolate as well. Minimal hoppiness. Fairly sweet coffee aftertaste. Seems more like a porter than a brown ale.
