3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at GABF as I was pouring for Bull & Bush. Pours a fairly typical darker brown color with a well-formed off-white head and good lacing. The aroma is nutty and chocolatey, not too intense but nice. The flavor is heavy on chocolate malts, lending a bit of a Hershey bar flavor to it, with caramel and nutty notes in there too. Medium-bodied with average carbonation and a pretty smooth mouthfeel. Solid example of the style overall from the surprisingly good Bull & Bush.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a brown color with a thin white head. This might be one of the better brown ales that I have ever had. It is rich, chocolatey and full of flavor. I would drink this beer regularly and I don’t even like the style. This is full of lots of complex flavors. Mildly roasted with an unexpected spiciness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly dark and robust brown ale, with a lot of chocolate and hazelnut character to it, as well as a fair amount of roasted malt flavor, and some buttery qualities on the back end - moderate bitterness and some leafy character in the finish - a decent brown.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Falling Rock. Clear copper brown with a small beige head, fading to a thick film. Buttery toffee up front with some light toasted malts behind. Flavor is a little roastier and has less buttery notes, though still faintly present. Finishes semi-dry, lightly roasty, and nutty. Bitterness was @ a 2. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. OK brown.

Crushed with Jakebra at Falling Rock. Average brown. Some substance but not much to it. A very drinkable brown just not that exciting.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep, almost opaque, almost sable brown with a fine-bubbled tan head. Aroma is rich and smoky with strong coffee overtone and spicy hints. Malty flavor is well-rounded with a considerable burnt coffee component and hints of chocolate and hops. The sweetness nicely balances the hoppy bitterness. Texture is smooth, rich and pleasing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the Falling Rock. Pour of creamy, dark toffee appearance, layering a thick, frothy head up the sides of the glass. Aroma of cream soda, vanilla cavendish, salted taffy, fig, and raspberry. Nutty, sweet and soft. Flavor is a sweet mash of old bananas, cinnamon, caramel, red licorice, vanilla, and toffee. Palate is cool and very soft with an earthy, woody texture and lots of residual sugar; finishes long and dry with raspberry bitterness and some gummy iced tea. Underattenuated throughout, but pretty smooth and easygoing enough to be pleasant.
