3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with a tall, chunky tan head that has great retention. Aroma is toasted nuts, sweet malt, brown sugar, a touch of sweet caramel and floral, herbal hops. Flavor is brown sugar, toasted nuts, toasted butter, sweet, crusty, white bread, a touch of roast, light chocolate and herbal, citrus and grassy hops. Palate is medium bodied, dry throughout and (a little too) highly carbonated. Pretty tasty brown ale, though a little high on the boozy burn and a bit to dry, I’m guessing lots of brown sugar was used.

Rating #1165 - 10.07.2014 - Bottle from CBI, enjoyed in a water glass at the Super 8 in Saskatoon. Dark brown pour with a weak bubbly tan foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong roast malts, hint of nutty sweetness. Really really light in body for a brown ale. Taste is bold roasty, light sweetness, dominant roast malt, well hopped character with a slightly bitter finish that is quite pleasant. Superb.

Pours a finger and half of light tan head on a brown body.
The aroma is extra nutty, roasted and toasted malt and a touch of lemon.
The taste is a well rounded roasted malt and chocolate flavor. There’s some mild bitterness in the middle to balance it out.
The texture is smooth and soft.
It tends towards the sweeter side, but it’s really good.

Bomber shared. Not sure if bad bottle or not but with the aroma has some coffee and moderate hops. But I get some sourness in the aroma as well as in the flavor. I get the hops in the flavor and the creaminess as well. But this sourness is a bit to much. Big light brown head that last with some decent lacing. Medium bodied beer. Hoping this was just a bad bottle.

(22oz bottle from Total Wine Desert Ridge). Pours a clear (when held to light) dark brown/mahogany color with chunky 2 finger tan head that leaves some lacing. Active carbonation. Aroma has some nice chocolate, caramel along with some pine and citrus. Taste is semi-sweet with some light, but up-front bitterness that is almost smoky. Thin bodied with an oily texture. Bitter finish. Not bad at all. I wish it were a tad sweeter, but it still works for my tastes.
