3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap at the brewpub] A beutiful brown-amber beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of caramel as well as toffee and roasted bread. The flavor is dry roasted with notes of toffee and roasted bread, and a slightly bitter hoppy end. An OK brown ale.

limited beige head, clear medium brown. Nutty brownies nose, fairly roasty, but simple and sweet nonetheless. Roasted nuts and chocolate dessert make up most of the flavors. Light-medium bodied, very light carbonation once again, is there a CO2 issue here? Alright I guess.

Bright amber-brown coloure. Toasty-toffeeish aroma with a hint of nuts. Slightly nutty, toffeeish flavour. Reasonably rich and full, as brown ales go.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral, nutty, chocolatey aroma is clean and appealing with a touch of citrus. Clear mahogany brown with a light ring of white head. Sweet, floral, honey flavour fades to reveal nutty chocolates and a light roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation though somewhat watery in texture. Sampled at the brewpub with Oakes, Rastacouere and Ungstrup.

Great brown ale. Smooth in the mouth, you can detect a caramel/butter aroma. You could drink this for days without a problem. All is well balanced.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 This rich brown ale is full of coffee and nutty notes, along with pleasant fruity caramel sweetness…A distinctive woody bitterness is quickly enveloped by this proficient maltiness, and dark chocolate is even added for good measure...
