2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is murky brown with a frothy tan head and good lacing. Butter, caramel, earthy hops, grass, bread, and toffee in the aroma. Taste is coffee, bitter hops, butterscotch, caramel, weird off-flavors, and cocoa. Medium body with medium carbonation. Extremely flawed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a sample at the brewery. The aroma is soft brettanomyces character, nutty, cherry. The flavor indicates a brettanomyces character as well. There are notes of nuts, roasted malts, caramel. Not bad, not sure if the brettanomyces is intentional, but it works.

Looks and smells a little wispy. Finish is roasty, but starts off a little weird. Pretty ok

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap @ Crabtree. Pours a dark orange appearance with a khaki head. Nutty, toasted caramel marke malty, somewhat spicy aroma. Tangy fruity, lightly acetic (huh?), caramel flavor. Drinkable but has some issues.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is slight roast and not much else. Flavor is about the same. A slight roasted malt is all I’m getting. Watery after that. They made a boring brown ale even more boring.

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.

Doesn’t even resemble a brown ale. So oxidized it’s not even funny. Hit me up with a freshie, and I’ll rerate.
