Old rating. Bottle from old town. Pours a dark brown with a modest tan head. Aromas of malt, chocolate, molasses and pine. Tastes more of the same with the molasses standing out as it comes to room temperature. Slightly sweet with a bitter finish. Full-bodied. Nice brown.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Clear mahogany/prune juice color with a short tan head. Short duration. Spotty lace.
S: Chocolate malt and Dr Pepper.
T: Less chocolaty and more hop bitterness than the nose would imply. Less Dr. Pepper and more Coke. Nice Roast flavor. Refreshing taste but a bit thin. Actually could use a little sweetness.
M: Tingly carbonation and light body for the style. Easy drinking though with just a bit of residual stickiness.
O: Good, refreshing and tasty but a bit lacking in flavor complexity. Overall I can name several browns I like at least as much for the same price. Worth a try but don’t overthink it.
