3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before March 2013. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toasted malt, roast, light coffee, toffee, herbal, and light dark fruits. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toasted malt, nuttiness, toffee, roast, light coffee, and light herbal spiciness. Slight herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toffee, toast, nuttiness, and light herbal on the finish for a bit. Very nice flavor balance, complexity, and robustness; zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice brown ale! Nicely robust and full of balanced flavors; and very smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cerveja de cor acobreada escura, bastante vistosa. A espuma é fina e pouco presente. O aroma é bastante convidativo, com toque amadeirado e silvestre; além disso já se percebe que se trata de uma cerveja rústica, remetendo também ao odor de estábulo. No sabor, o amargor é bastante destacado, mas não prejudicada a drinkability. O aftertaste é agradável e refrescante, com amargor concentrado no momento em que a cerveja é tomada. O toque Silvestre que vem do aroma se mantém presente e é uma cerveja extremamente refrescante. O corpo é leve e acredito que cai bem com alimentos leves e de sabor fraco. É pouco complexa.
