3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly better than expected. Great rich brown coloring, pleasing semi-chocolate yet dry mouthfeel and taste, noticable nut and hops. A beer well done.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is rich dark malts, huge nuts on your nose, slight chocolate, sweet candied nuts. Brown pour with red/brown highlights. Taste is toffee, roast, smoke, herbal hops, dark bitter chocolate. Thin body, quick finish. This guy right here approves. Nothing to seek out but very well done.

Canít say that iím a fan of brown ale but this was ok. Aroma of caramel, vanilla and a bit roastiness. Malty flavour with a slightly bitter finish. Easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very plesant and good drinking brown ale. Extemely dark pour with a reddish hue. Little to no head (less than a centimeter), slightly methol in aroma. Light cream with a slightly "alcohol" finish. Light lacing. A slight malt detectable, more towards the sweet. Not too much on the hops detected, but maybe itís an old bottle. Consistent with other Brookyln brews. (Bottle 2/28/2006)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very malty brew. The hops and the esters combine to produce and clean, crisp brew with a creamy palate. At its usual price, itís a very good deal.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown pour with moderate tan head. Nice malty aroma. Was not expecting the heavy hops in this brown ale. Not bad, but a little too bitter for my tastes.

330ml bottle. Deep brown with amber highlights. Creamy head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, dark dried fruits and some hops. Somewhat roasty flavors, again some chocolate, dried fruits and a caramel. Medium body. Itís a good brown ale...

Dark reddish brown pour. Choclatey malt flavor with a bit of hops bitterness. A decent everyday beer.
