Amazingly fresh on the palate, fairly unassuming on the aroma, not giving much away for the taste. wouldn’t say this beer is breaking boundaries in the craft beer world, but a real solid brown ale from brooklyn

Very nice. Pours dark brown with thin but tight tan head. Strong hop aroma with evident Carmel notes. Flavor does have some sweetness but brewer not shy about bringing hop bitterness. Very quaffable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle...poured cola colored w/ a cream colored head. The head was mostly lasting and provided soapy lacing to the last drop. The aroma were of chocolate, caramel, and toffee. The flavor was a mild sweetness with the aforementioned notes. The beer was light w/o being watery and had a mice bittersweet finish. Great brown ale that I could easily session...

Dark brown color with a thin tan head. The flavor was a roasted coffee with some sweet caramel in the background. The finish was slightly bitter and hoppy. Very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown with a thin sand-coloured head that disappeared fairly quick. The aroma is malty, nutty, and somewhat chocolate-like, and the hops are very ’floral’ with some rose-like hints. The taste is fairly sweet and there’s an interesting sour almost lactic tinge to the taste. Definitely liked it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours like a cola. Dark brown at the bottom and gets lighter and more carbonated as it moves to the top. Nice creamy head. Very elegant. Smells like toffee and coffee rolled into a chocolate hop hug. The flavor is a wonderful balance of acidity, chocolate, and caramel. Sooo tasty. Palate is a bit thin. It’s not too complex but it’s a wonderful beer to drink at anytime of the morning, mid afternoon, and evening.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a murky, swamp brown with a tan head that fades down to a rimmer. It has a malty, caramel and grain aroma. It is very smooth in the mouth at the start bringing along a malt, cereal flavor. It has an almost bubblegum middle before the hops and carbonation pierce through and leave a little zip on the tongue. It improves as it warms in the glass.
