3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft, this is an excellent brown. Aroma choclate and a bit roasty, with a hint of hop bitterness. Full flavors of chocolate, coffee, yet still within the typical flavor profile of a good brown ale, not a porter at all. Shockingly hoppy finish for a brown, some nice pine notes and distinct bitterness, maybe a hint of grapefruit. Really a very nice brown.
