3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown with two fingers of beige head. Looks great. Aroma is a little weak, toasted nuts, slight roasted malts that yield a mellow coffee notes. Taste rolls around the tongue much like the aroma. This is pretty much just it comes billed as, a double brown ale. I actually liked it quite a bit at first, but as it warmed it became too boozy. If that was better balanced this would be very impressive. As it is, pretty good.

This beer might be too big for its britches. I like brown ales but this one comes off a bit harsh and muddled. alcohol is present and abrasive. There is a nice sweet toastyness that is great but is detracted from by heavy booze.
