3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tight kahki head that fades. Aroma is good roasted malt and some plesant coffee scents and maple. Taste is nice and roasted malt along with some funky sweet maple. Palate is medium feel with a mellow carbonation and finishes dry. This is one of the tastier Brau Brothers I have had. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample via oakbluff. Brown-red in colour with medium (albeit somewhat spritzy) carbonation. Aromas of vanilla fudge, a bit of strawberry and raspberry, and some toasted malt. A bit fruit forward in the mouth (raspberry again) with more mild chocolate, toasted nuts, and a bit of earthy British hop. More sweet than roasty. Would be fairly heavy in the mouth if not for the carbonation tingle. A bit too fruity for me, but still fairly nice.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear, ruby tinted medium brown with a small, creamy, off white head that has good retention. Aroma is lots of buttery toffee, creamed corn, cereal grain and biscuit. Flavor is more buttery toffee, buttered popcorn Jelly Belly jellybeans, toasted nuts, sweetish cereal malts, light fruity notes and a bitter planty note toward the finish. Palate is light bodied slightly slick and moderately carbonated.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Biscuty and lightly toasted malt aroma. A hint of cocoa powder, which I imagine derives form the oats. Pours a fairly attractive rich brown with some nice amber highlights. Flavor is slightly nutty with some malt and oats. A tough of roastiness. Nice offering! Keep it comin’, Dustin and crew!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle] Pours clear brown with a light tan head. Aroma is nutty, roasted malt--not bad at all. Taste of coffee, cocoa, and malt with a sort of strange finish that could be the raspberry. Medium-thin. Not very carbonated. This was ok--but as I have found Brau Brother’s beers to be much better on tap, I’ll have to rerate one at a bar some time.
