3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Some nuttiness, warm malts. Not a ton of flavor. Fairly light for a brown ale. Not bad though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Tap. Not much of an aroma, perhaps some malty sweetness but I like the dark Ruby Red color. The head was fairly thin and the taste is also of malts with a slightly bitter finish. A good substitute for when they occasionally run out of the state street stout.

Pours a beautiful dark brown, with a nicely creamy head. Tastes of roasted nuts blended with caramel and a note of coffee lurking about in the background. A bit light in the taste for such a dark brew, exacerbated by hoppy finish that could stand some heavier notes up front.Overall, a fairly good brew.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draught. Deep amber, frothy beige head. Eyewatering nose of sour milk and yoohoo chocolate drink. Tastes exactly the same; sour milk and mocha latte. For comparison, the sourness is of equal intensity as the infamous infected Victory V10. Medium-light body, creamy. Poisonously overbitter muddy and ashtray aftertaste coats the tongue. If any of the commercial description flavors were in there, they were completely overwhelmed by lactic sourness. Nasty!

I had the Alt before I had this don’t make that mistake. This beer was a nice amber pour with light lacing. It had a sweetish maltiness with a light bitter finish. A very well balanced beer. A nice beer that was just a tad on the watery side. Overall a damn fine brew. I wish I could make one like it.

Maybe their best beer. Good malt characteristics, not overly hoppy. Brown, fair amount of head. Light/medium bodied.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 on draught under the alias "Woodruff Brown" . Light tan/brown pour. Nutty, sugary aroma with some acidity. There’s a sweet walnut taste and an astrigency of nut shells. There’s a bit of breadiness throughout. This is fairly thin for a brown and not balanced too well.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Brownish copper with off-white head. This is reasonable, but not as good as other nut browns.
