3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown chocolate colour with nutty-caramel taste. Somewhat hoppier than other nut brown ales I remember(at least this bottle is!). Decent beer that would be better with a little more body and better carbonation. Mine went flat pretty quick.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear deep brown with milk chocolate aroma and earthy overtones. Sweet malts with Nutella and chocolate, but not much hops. Good body but would be better with more floral hops added. Thanks to Piscator.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown in colour with very little carbonation. Aromas of chocolate malts and canned nuts. It has a similar profile as far as flavor goes, and is thankfully not too sweet. A bit watery, and not very memorable, but not horrible either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown beer with a fine-grained tan head. Wonderfully rich smell of roasted almonds, vanilla, and faint chocolate. Flavour is similar, with sweet nuttiness and chocolate. Has a nice slightly bitter coffee finish and a rich creamy body. This is another very good beer from this brewery.
