12oz can SpecialEd5388 who I think stole this from someone named Kenny. Poured a slightly dark orangey-amber with a foamy super light beige head. Aroma/flavor of dusty grains, chocolate malts, brown paper bag, nut shells. Watery mouthfeel with stingy carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper-brown with a big off-white head. Nose is strongly chocolate and brown sugar and a slight tart note. Flavor is less interesting, though chocolate definitely dominates the palate. Finish is fast. Nothing exceptional but certainly very drinkable and solid for a simple beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 ounce pour - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, brown body with some ruby-tinted hues at the edges. Slim, ivory-colored head.
Smell: Caramel, brown sugar and cocoa atop toasted breadcrusts charred and burnt at the edges with some mild, lighter fruity hints underneath.
Taste: Toasted malts with nutty caramel and brown sugar. Lightly fruity, hint of raisin, and, maybe some cherries, too. Thereís an underlying burnt roastiness that overrides the more pleasing íbrown aleí tastes. Backdrop of floral hops and some light bitterness. Drying finish with that roastiness having latched on.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: While itís not bad itís not overly likable with the sustained roasted kick.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from Old Town. Aroma: Slightly spicy brown toast with some cocoa powder in tow. Appearance: Dark chestnut brown with soft carbonation holding up a foamy tan head that settles into a partially bubbly skin. Flavor: Semi dry toast up front becomes more spicy; cocoa enters and adds a semi-sweet element, but ultimately dries up at the finish. Palate: Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Nicely done and flavorful brown ale; if anything, it feels a little heavy for 5%.
