3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear very dark ruby amber with a fluffy cloud for a head and streamers of lace. Taste is caramel malt and tart toffee that has a bit of coffee character as it moves through the palate. There isn’t quite enough bittering at the end to balance. Pretty big flavor, but heavy on the sweetness. Reasonable effort

This beer is tasteful just like a Brown ale should be. A little bitter but none the less a tasty beer. With 30 IBU and 25 in SRM which brings the color between a ruby brown and deep brown.

Draft @ the Beer Garden in Stamford, CT. This is a solid brown ale that has a surprisingly high barley flavor. Medium bodied and laces nicely. Not much of a hop flavor, but nothing offensive about this beer, but they need to figure out to eliminate the chalkiness of this.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 sample at harvest wine and spirits in West Hartford. Grainy smokey lightly spicy malts in with a great backbone. Very easy light drinker. Awesome job.
