3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice, almost-nitro-like head on initial pour that doesn't linger too long. Carbonation brings back tiny bubbles with a quick swirl of glass or hard set down. Strong chocolate and raspberry aroma notes. That's matched with equally strong chocolate alongside very earthy / nutty, slight coffee, plus a nice dose of raspberry fruit flavor. A nice pint or two to savor slowly.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A- Malty, subtle dried fruits.
A- Dark amber color, clear liquid, tan head.
T- Cooked veggies, spinach dip, subtle fruit, malty, caramel.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, astringent finish.
O- I wasn’t sure if I was drinking a beer or pureed spinach dip from a chain restaurant. This had a lot of vegetable flavor to it although the descriptions on the bottle were there too, just minimal.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 average brown ale...i thought this would be a lot tastier like previous brau bros beers i have tried...a little recipe tweaking and this could be real good.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle. Brown with small head. Below average brown ale. Thin mouthfeel, and moderate off-flavors. Tastes like it’s been sitting around for too long, but that doesn’t appear to be the case here.
