3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Filtered brown body. Thin beige head. Starts off pretty classic and true to style but finishes kind of thin and hollow. Allows the malts to shine in a unique way, this does come off as a Strong Ale despite the semi-reasonable ABV. I like Brown Ales, but this really lacks life. OKish.

A pretty decent winter warmer. A nicely understated amount of spice and a solid caramel base.

Bottle. Light chocolate malt, hay, and quinine aroma. Orange-brown with small head. Lightly sweet chocolate caramel malt and mildly bitter herbal quinine flavor. Boring and not particularly pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, big thanks to the callipalegic. Dark fruit, interesting ashy spicy note. Berry, and hints of coffee. Alex tasted it, she says the flavor reminds her of chocolate covered strawberries. Definitely lots of strawberry in the aftertaste, and some herbal quality which may or may not be from the vape in between sips. Earthy hops, and some chocolate. The cocoa aspect is very nice. Hazy brown red color, with a thin off-white head. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lightly crisp carbonation. Hazelnut is not so noticeable for me up front, but becomes much more noticeable in the aftertaste and the finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Decent hazelnut brown ale. Better than expected. Really appreciate it more towards the end, as it sits and warms up, and as the carbonation settles. Not bad at all, better than expected. In my opinion, a little bit better than Rogue Hazelnut (less sweet, bit more dry).

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Must be an old bottle, hope it aged well, heheh. Smells almost like a barley wine. First taste is as expected, quite winter spice like. I donít miss these beers and I donít think its a brown ale, only in looks. Yes this must have some kindah winter spice in there. Stronger intense spice begins to build. Wew, way to impressive to be a simple brown. Begins to get mouth coating. Long higher alky medicinal finish. Seems like more than 7% to me, but hey, Iím just a neophyte. Worst brown ale Iíve had in a while says my girlie lager taste buds.
