3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Pours a nutty, mahogany brown color with slight clarity, topped with a swampy ecru skin that turns into an actual head when the glass is swirled. Initial aroma has a strange, almost tart dark fruitiness that was throwing me off, but it seems to subside with some warmth/time. Successive inhales bring out rich coffee beans, like sticking your nose into a fresh whole bean bag. Notes of roasted nuts, tobacco, toffee, & dried dark fruits make their way in, too. Taste has a very woodsy essence with a big nuttiness that leads into a huge coffee bean profile. Good mix of roasty & just lightly sweet. Touch of cocoa powder with more coffee & nuts in the finish. Aftertaste has a very slight staleness but nothing too concerning. I know it’s just a brown ale, but a little more creaminess in the body would do this one well. Good flavor for the ABV, not a bad brown at all.

355ml can from trade with Jason. Aroma: strong coffee bean giving some roasty notes, light vanilla on top of the traditional nuts smell. App: really dark brown, medium off white head, great lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, light sweetness, a tad watery, moderate carbonation, nutty, finish is slightly roasted. Overall: great aroma. Love the addition of coffee in this brown ale. On the other hand, it could be tastier. It’s nutty but not much more in mouth. Good mouthfeel. Good job.
