3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer is a very dark brown with a 1" head of off white foam and has some nice lacing.
Lots of sweet malt and cocoa in the smell, which Iím digging.
Same for the taste...definitely English style with very little bitterness and nice levels of malt and cocoa, slight nuttiness.
Medium body goes well with a lightish carbonation.
This is a very good Brown Ale served from my Growler.

Draught. Pours a near-black color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose had some stout qualities to it, as I got some nice roasting and coffee notes in there, as well as just a bit of toffee underneath. Taste was slightly bitter, but pleasantly so. Super smooth on the palate, too. I really liked this one.

Beautiful deep chestnut with garnet hues. Lasting tan head. Light nose of toast with just a touch of coffee. Great balanced flavor. Roast, toffee malt, just enough herbal hops to balance. Great dry finish. Very drinkable brown.

Growler poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of cocoa, carmel, nuts and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, cocoa and liught nuts with a crisp carmel finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler - brought from Sheridan from my second cousin. Very dark brown pour, sticky egg shell colored head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Clean, sweet aroma of brown sugar and molasses. Flavor has a nice nutty essence to it with some faint licorice accents, some toffee and a bit of chocolate to round it out. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. Pretty solid brown ale.
