3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Thunder. Somewhat hazy brown / red color, minimal off-white head. A bit more sharp, moderate carbonation. Decent mild chocolate nutty malt aroma, with a more sweet taste. Some caramel in there. Ok, but I’m not really a huge fan.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber with a full off-white head and good lacing. Taste is heavy with sweet caramel and hazelnut malt. It is a big brown ale that is a tad filling, leaving a coating on the tongue. Decent, but not one to seek out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with a 1 finger tan head. Decent retention.
Smells very nutty along with coffee and roasted malt. Some caramel as well.
The taste is roasted malt along with a very prominent nuttiness. There are some coffee and caramel notes in the background along with a pleasing hoppiness. Mouthfeel is a tad bit watery but ok.
Overall this is a very solid brown ale and one that I would seek out.

I enjoy this nut brown. The beer is very flavorful and bold. It is easy to drink, but comes off as fresh and alive.

This is a pretty nice looking beer w/ its slightly cloudy brown color and small head of evenly sized bubbles. The nose is mildly roast w/ some caramel and fruity apple notes. The flavor is mild and drinkable, just a touch of darker malts and roast, medium dry w/ brisk carbonation. It is decently balanced though I feel it would benefit if the carbonation was toned down a hair. Decent enough brew but it is neither perfectly executed nor particularly flavorful so I’d say it’s just a bit above average for the style.
