3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Tastes of carmal & nuts with a strong earthy mouthfeel. Only had a sample of this, but overall was impressed. As usual beer from the Dark Horse doesnít disappoint.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Brewpub: I can see brown ale fans really loving this beer. Aroma of sweet, caramel malt and a tad of chocolate. Smooth, full-bodied, and flavor of burnt caramel with a mild finish.

This really hit the spot on a cool day in June at the brewpub. The flavor seemed pretty complex for this style. Of course it had that earthy flavor that I find in other Dark Horse brews.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at 2007 Michigan BGWF. Poured hazy brown color with a moderate light brown frothy head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good complex sweet malty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a moderate smooth sweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

Dark porter looking brown. Flat with no head. This flat apperance also hold true for the mouthfeel. Some carmel/toffe tones. No zip nothing interesting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2010 Changed my rating on this. which was a 2.4 Just picked up a bottle today and it isnít even close to my low rating before . maybe I got a bad bottle beforefrom the bottle. poured a dark brown with mahogany hues with a small tan headthat left some traces down the side of the glass. aroma roasted nuts, cherries that are almost ripe (still has some sourness mixed with the sweetness) caramel, bittersweet chocolate, plums,as it warms the choclate started to lean more to sweet side, malt. flavor had my mouth all set from some good tasteing beer but this let me down big time tasted watered downabout the only thing I got out of it was a touch of cherries and chocolate. since this doesnít have a date on the bottle anyplace I donít know how old this is.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at brewpub-murky brown with a sudsy off-white head. very complex nose for a brown-light hops, roasted peanuts, light cramel. nice roasted nut flavors with some earthy hops, and a touch of sweetness. very nice body for a brown-full and lush for the style. long roasted nut finish with lingering caramel malts. I dig this brown. I wish it was being bottled when i was at the brewpub.

Decent brown, but a distant finisher in the race of the 6 beers we had here on our tour. Some slight nuttiness/chocolate/and a touch of smoke...but all pretty weak and thin. Much better choice abound here!

Growler shared by Brad. Pours a dark brown color with a foamy off white head. Very airy and foamy. Nose is light brown sugar and caramel malt. Taste is a very sweet caramel, a nice rich palate, sweet malt and some light sugary notes.
