2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with reddish tint, very small off-white foamy head that disappears almost immediately, caramel aroma, slightly sweet with a hint of cherry, low carbonation, abrupt finish. A bit weak for my taste.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Nose is very sweet, fruity with faint earthy caramel and yeast. Pours deep chestnut leaning into pitch with a large frothy tan head. Taste is lightly sweet and strongly sour, so strongly that I wonder if it was intentional (Iíve never had an unintentionally infected beer this sour). Aggressive carbonation, jammy fruit, no bitterness, hint of yeast. Cleansed palate, thatís for sure. Medium body. Be happy to have another go.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle. Smells like honey nut Cheerios. Dark mahogany with
a reddish tiny, really no head. Nut flavor, with sweet malt, toffee, nutmeg, root beer, maybe some dry cocoa. Lotsa flavor but watery feel - needs more carbonation. Otherwise, pretty good stuff.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
No bottling information.
Appearance: This is a beautiful beer, the body is a deep brown, though a bit hazy. The head is a towering tan thatís very creamy looking with excellent retention and lots of lacing.
Aroma: The aroma reminded me of something instantly, it reminds me of Kahlua. It has a syrupy sweet artificial chocolate and coffee.
Taste: Whoa, sour, possibly infected. The flavor is a strong of cocoa powder with a sour flavor pushing way through.
Palate: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation.
Overall: This is near undrinkable, Iím guessing itís infected. I canít finish this.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a medium brown color with an average head. Toasty malt scent. Sour, sour flavor. I donít know whatís wrong with this beer but despite several different samples itís just way to sour for a brown ale. Very unpleasant.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel brown color with a frothy cream-colored head. Not much aroma-nuts and caramel mostly. Decent lacing with nuts, caramel, fruit, and a surprising sour ending. Decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap in flight @ RnH w Andy and Dubra. Dark brown with thin head and spots on glass. Smells tame with some chocolate and nut. Palate is very silky smooth with dark chocolate and nuts. Not out of control, but tasty and finishes clean.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not a good beer. Bad aftertaste. The one good thing it had going for it was a great frothy head.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Strange, almost tastes of pickle juice. A bit of malt, some hops, and a salty sourness that if very much out of place. Not sure if I got a bad one or if there is a tone to it that I just donít agree with.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Split a growler with a buddy while watching Temple Football in the Super New Mexico Bowl. Dark brown ale, medium body, with fruit, roasted malts, chocolate and light bitterness. The aroma was green hop. I donít know if it was Temple dominating over Wyoming or I had a really good batch from Climax; I enjoyed this beer tremendously.
