3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at Fifty West. Pours a clear brown color with gold highlights in the slimmer part of the glass. Light aroma of nuts, toasted malts, earth, and just a little bit of roasted chocolate. The flavor is more robust, with toasted, caramel, and chocolate malts and not much else. Just nice and malty. Light-bodied and smooth, with moderate carbonation. Good brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours brown in color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is moderately sweet chocolate, lightly toasted, with a subtle hint of coffee. The flavor is chocolate malts, light coffee notes with a mild earthy note. This is creamy in texture and very easy to drink. Better than most brown ales.
