2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A flavorful brown ale that suffered from lack of carbonation and a much too cold serving temperature. Roasty with the right amount of bitterness. No head, no laciing. virtually flat. IOk at best.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewpub: Dark brown pour with a small, foamy tan head that diminished quickly. Nose is light with hops and roasted malts. Taste is a bit watered down up front, but comes through in the end. Tastes of roasted malt, dark fruits, caramel, and some hints of spice. I thought it was served too cold; I’d like to try it again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown with a tan, foamy head and some lace. Bitter, odd aroma. I found the nose had some nutmeg in it. I have no clue where Jordan got strawberries. The flavor had more spices in it, perhaps cinnamon and nutmeg. Roasty malts. Heavy but not cloying with a lasting sense of nutmeg.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Brewpub: Dark ruby black, no head, light lacing. Nose of grassy strawberry and light hops. Sweet roasted malts and a creamy tail. The flavor is nice and chewy. A bit stronger than the others and an odd twank in the end; metallic?
