2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep brown with red highlights and a thin off-white head. Aroma is minimal, only some English hops. The taste has some caramel, bread and light nutty flavors but doesn’t have the almond/hazelnut intensity of sam smith’s. Decent, just let it warm up a bit first.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice dark crimson, with a small tan head. Light aroma. Smells a touch like Goldings, but not quite. This one has a bit of a chemical aroma. Flavor is subtle, and fairly balanced, but too light to make an impression. Palate is thin, but not watery. Overall an okay brown, but was expecting better from a quality brewer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear orange-brown with a finger of creamy, beige head and matching lace. The nose is of fruity, burnt caramel and light metal. Medium-bodied with fine "expansive" carbonation; it actually feels as if it’s increasing in volume while it sits in your mouth; most curious. It finishes a bit astringent and lightly bitter with a touch of metal, as well. Burnt caramel, a faint nuttiness, and a bit of plastic, with a mildly bitter earthy-hopped finish. I generally like Bridgeport’s brews, but this one is an exception to that rule.

maple, chocolate, wheat toast. deep reddish brown w/ quick off-white head. a sting from carbonation and hops but also a thin and drying texture. honey, molasses, apricot malt flavors get a little balance from lightly citrus hops

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is one of the better browns that I’ve had.
Pretty dark for a brown, nice fluffy head.
Pleasant caramel malt aroma, rather sweet smelling..
Sweet, bready, malty taste that is nice and smooth.
Not a big fan of the style but this is a good one.
