3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from Triangle Wine for 2 dollars. Pours clear brown, fizzy light brown head. Taste and aroma consist of light toffee, sweet malts, some brown sugar flavor as well. Overall palate is just average. A decent enough brown ale but far from the best.

Looks awful. Way too light for a brown ale with no head. Taste isn’t at all bad though, I get caramel, hazelnut, and a hint of coffee.

Strong toffee aroma with a touch of caramel, pours a clear (but very dark) amber with a full off white head. Sweet toffee and caramel notes carry the flavor, with just a little bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Higher carbonation also helps to lift the sweetness away. Medium body, and very drinkable. I’ll probably revisit this one when it cools off outside.

Chocolate, toffee, caramel, candy taste. Pretty sticky overall. Interesting brown ale, but wouldn't be a go to for me.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear reddish-brown. Two finger almost white pillowy head some lacing and retention. Aroma of coffee and hazelnuts. Taste is somewhat sweet with just a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of caramel, hazelnuts, faint chocolate, toasted malt and grass. It’s a pretty decent brown ale.

A sweet, chocolate aroma . The color is dark brown, nearly opaque with white head. The taste is, well, like tootsie roll. A nice sweet mellow aftertaste. A good brown ale.
