2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
When asked to comment on a beer we had tried not even a few hours previously, my friends said: "I don’t even remember drinking that beer." This was that beer. A completely forgettable heavier brown ale, not particularly sweet or dry, not with any coffee or vanilla or elderberry or bourbon or anything. Whatever.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz, bottled 6/2012. Deep brown with creamy tan foam. Nose is brown sugar, molasses, hay and coffee grounds. Seductively silky with a sharp tang ending bitter and ashy. Taste is dark chocolate, dark roast and burnt sugar with swirls of dark fruit. A jacked up brown; i like it.

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.

22oz bomber. Pours a thick dark brown color with a finger of foamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted nuts. Taste is creamy, boozy, caramel, coffee, chocolate, and roasted nuts. Seems more like a light RIS then a brown ale.

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.
