Pretty good brown ale. Like the roundness and nuttiness, delicate mix of caramel, faint roast and chocolate, the stronger than expected hops are nice to but certainly don’t seem to age that well. quite well balanced otherwise. thinner with nice carbonation and very drinkable.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Sour vinegar aroma. Hazy chestnut with a gargantuan tan head... as in 4/5th of the glass large head.. as in I had to wait 10 minutes to taste the damn thing large head. Only to discover I had an infected bottle and will have to revisit this one at a later date. Sour lactic flavor, unpleasant.

Dark mahogany with decent, creamy orange-tan head / Smooth nose of roast barley, chocolate, coffee, and cream / Medium body, a touch watery but creamy and smooth, dry with just a hint of sweetness, excellent balance and finish / Somewhat cooked flavors of semisweet chocolate, roast coffee, nut, and cream / Solid, without being exceptional in any category.

this one was all over the place .. . pours a medium tan .. light foamers .. . why do women soccer players just not have tits? .. light brown bread, un sweetened maple syrup, and light nuts .. . light mouth, muddled finish - just average .. . . "Spin-off!" Is there any word more thrilling to the human soul?
