Just returned from Montana and tried most local brews. This was by far the best. For a brown ale, this brew is loaded with flavor. Hops are present and there’s a smack of malts. Really a nice balance and I’m an IPA fan by nature. Brought back some extras to enjoy for a while.

Good brown from big sky. Honestly my first micro love in the early 2000s. Still a great beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a bottle purchased at CVS in San Antonio. Pours a dark brown with only slight head - rather under-carbonated. Pleasant slightly sweet, creamy taste with hints of toasted malts and a slightly nutty flavour. Pleasant malty aroma. Some hop flavour to balance the sweetness, but not much bitterness. Slightly stronger than a typical British example.This is a really nice, easy-drinking brown ale. Very pleasant.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weak pour but contains a sweet malty nose that is pleasant. Some chocolate notes. Decent balance of toasty malts and a light hoppy bitterness. Realizing I’m not a big fan of this style in general.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is licorice, molasses and medium roasted mts and slight floral hops. Taste is extremely rich, almost chewy malts with notes similar to aroma. Appearance is an orange amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.
