3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew poured a large head of finely sized very light brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lace. The body was transparent brown colored and carbonated. The aroma was nice with caramel malt and brown beer malt notes. The mouth feel was smooth slightly tingly and finished very mellow. It had a mild brown beer flavor that was malty and just a little thin.

[Portland International Beer Festival – Tap]
A dark brown brew with a minimal head. This had a strong flavor and a good malt balance. You can tell they took there time brewing this beer. The fruitiness was subtle yet noticeable. I liked this beer it was a good representative to the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brown with perhaps a touch of rudy. Head seems to be a bit fizzy with a beige hue. Light caramel and dough aroma. Somewhat sweet and unassuming. Drinkable and somewhat forgetable.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. Translucent amber-brown color. Minimal soda-like head. I’d have to guess the bottle was old. Pungent, devolved dark malt tones. On the light side of medium bodied. Some toffee tones. Cheap Eastern-European dark beer. Probably way better fresh, certainly not one to age.

This is nice. Surprisingly full flavored. Aroma has roasted malt and toasted bread. Dark brown color with low carbonation. Flavor is roasted grain. They did a good job with this. Great body, especially for the style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A fairly rich aroma with a bit of molasses. Quite light and easy, but has a good sweeness in the finish, maybe a hint of chocolate. Good stuff.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I didn’t even notice this was a green bottle with no date until I got home. What an atrocious trainwreck this turned out to be. Poured copper with a sudsy tan head. The aroma is of malt balls, some buttery diacetyl, stale fruits and foot odor. Against my better judgement I took a drink just of the sake of covering all aspects of a rating. Medium body with light carbonation. The taste starts horribly sour and malty. The finish has much of what was on the aroma only quite astringent and the added bonus of spoiled cooked veggies. This was awful, even for a drain pour.
