2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. A dark chestnut pour with a ring of translucent head; surprisingly hoppy aroma; thin and watery in the mouth with a sweet malty taste, and some fuzzy spice from the hops. Not at all what I was expecting.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours really dark brown with a thin white head from tap. Aroma is pretty low. Some maltiness. Taste is immediately bitter from the roasted malts and hops. Pretty flat hop flavor, just bitterness. Sharp and thin mouthfeel. It’s okay. More bitter than I’d like

@ Radisson (Alna) Oslo 15-1-19: ganska trevlig doft. Smaken är fin med tydlig choklad och kaksmet samt nötter. Gott.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355mL bottle from Beer Cartel BB
Attractive looking beer; clear ruby body with dense beige head.
Offers generous quantities of malt; toast, cocoa, toffee, distinct nuttiness, with a good helping of spicy, citrusy American hops.
Medium bodied, bit of chewy texture to it, moderately high carbonation.
Nice depth of malt character - toffee, browned toast, subtle roast grain, with a grass hop hit to boot. Moderate bitterness, dry lingering nuttiness on finish.
Decent brown ale, really enjoy the maltiness, kinda wish it had more body, but that’s nit picking.
