3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from the Brewery. Pours dark brown with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel and nuts. Flavor is roasted nuts, some cocoa, and toast. Lightly hopped, but a moderate amount of sprucey hops are evident in the finish. Somewhat creamy, medium bodied. Very drinkable - I could quaff this all night with no complaints.

On tap at Cozumel. Pours a deep brown body with a small biege head. Roasted nutty aroma with some chocolate scents. Pretty tasty caramel, and chocolate. Some hops noticable. Good beer before dinner because Iím not sure this brown ale wouldve went with my fajitas.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2007 Pour is brown with a nice head. The aroma is tons of roast and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is more of the same. Strong roast balanced out by the sweet chocolate. A nice job.

On tap, Buffalo Brewfest 04. Medium brown colour, decent tan head. Lots of malt in aroma. Very malty taste, hints of chocolate and a roasted dryness. Not a bad brown, but I found it a little too unbalanced.
