3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served up on tap at the Charlie and Jake’s brewpub pouring deep brown to mahogany with thin tan head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, malt sweetness and some earthiness too. The taste is initially a mix of dark roasted malts and earthiness as well as some caramel malts creating a pleasing near robust flavor experience. It then heads into a dry finish created by the moderate level of roasted malts astringency. Tasty brown for sure.

On tap. Poured a hazy brown color with a short off-white head. The aroma was light citrus and toasted malts. The flavor was dominated by citrus with some light roasted malts. Not much going on in terms of chocolate. Reminded me more of an amber than a brown ale. Thin body.

The aroma is weak and watery with no character but some toasted malt. The appearance is brown with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is not that good.
