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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a very dark amber color with a thin tan head on top.
S: A very toasty and bready nose. Not much depth other than perhaps a bit of earthiness and a hint of bitter chocolate.
T: Very bland flavor with only a light bitterness coming through immediately. There is a bit of bitter chocolate and some nutty malt flavor and a mild sweetness on the finish.
M: The body is fairly light and the carbonation is very high.
D: Not particularly flavorful, so I really would not want to drink this one again.
