3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
28th May 2011
Hazy red - brown beer, tiny white head. Dry and crispy palate. Caramel chocolate in the malt. On top is a lively plummy fruit. Minerals. Dry and slightly bitter finish. An interesting brown, but a tad over dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber-brown with a half finger of diminishing eggshell head. Aromas of malts, caramel, toffee, and dough. Flavor is sweet and mild up front, then slightly bitter. Finishes nutty with tones of roasted malt and hints of toffee/dark chocolate. Mild carbonation and a light body, with a mild mouthfeel. Drinkable and a decent brown ale.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly fizzy dark brownish red pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of trashy cardboard, sour grain, hints of earth, slight caramel, touch of diacetyl, uh oh. Taste is better, but powdery cocoa, some slight trash, garbage, wet husky grains, slight sour grain, hints of earth and nuts, finishing fairly bitter, very fizzy and acidic with the carbonic acid. Hope this was just an off bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby - frothy lace - nose is leafy tobacco, roasted nuts, toffee, earthy hops - soft carbonation, smooth texture - flavor is medium dry, with strong hazelnut - a bit of tobacco - light caramel sweetness and subtle hops on the tail end, along with a mild acidity - nothing stand out, but perfectly drinkable and enjoyable for what it is - nothing I would buy again, but decent - this brewery gets no love.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A little hazy, milk chocolate brown, with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of belgian yeast (banana), soap, pale malt, caramel, old milk and dark fruit. The taste is a touch of soap and chocolate with somewhat fruitiness and pale malts. Medium body with heavy carbonation. A little cheap in the mouthfeel and taste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the brewpub. Pours dark amber/brown with a 3 finger foamy beige head. Aroma is sort of nutty chocolate. Med body/frothy carb. Flavor is nutty/malty, and I can imagine a hint of chocolate. It goes a bit thin, but itís very smooth, and the finish is delightful.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Overall this beer had an offensive carbonation that reminded me of an overly-carbonated soda or Bud Light. The flavors were fine but very homebrewy kind of flavor.
