3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber into dimpled mug. Pours dark brown with amber highlights showing through when held up to the light. Has a small beige head that dissipates into a resilient blanket of foam. Aroma is bready, nutty, syrupy, milky; has faint notes of anise. Taste is lightly sweet and just a tad bitter. Has a nice nutty flavor but the body is thin. Enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Medium brown color with a small tan head. Earthy aroma. Bitter, roasted nut flavor. There is an odd earthy flavor as well with an unpleasant, lingering sour taste. Nasty syrupy texture with average carbonation. Thought my taste buds would adapt to the flavor as I drank more but it only got worse. Couldn’t finish the pint.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Medium dark brown, light tan head. Aroma is caramel and light cocoa, marred a little by some metal. No metal in the flavour thankfully, just the same dark caramel as in the nose, but no chocolate or fruit really. Bitter hop note in the finish, but no real flavour from the hops. Mouthfeel is rather thinnish. Underwhelming.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft. clear chestnut brown. clean nose of roasted nuts, grain chaff, light roast and cracked just-burnt toast. medium body, medium to heavy dryness, very clean profile - snappy toasted grains with crunchy walnuts and toasted bread. clean, enjoyable, snappy with tight carbonation and medium- hop bitterness. this is a surprisingly good brown ale given the ratings, but it may benefit on tap and suffer in the bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2010 Dark brown, fading beige head. Aroma of nut, caramel, bready malts. Taste is mild with toasty malt and lot of sweetness. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Brewery visit- seems more rich and roasty with more nut, burnt malt and chocolate.
