4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a clear brown color with a medium light-brown head. Its aroma was a nice blend of roasted malts, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Flavor was simililar to the aroma, as it was a nice chocolate malt flavor with a hoppy finish. Probably the best Fort Collins beer Iíve had from the bottle.

This was a good non-spicy winter warmer. Some good heft to the body and a nuttiness that is not too much.

A very solid, drinkable brown ale. Good dark color. To be honest, I liked this one out of the bottle better than a snifter. Delicious toffee and hazelnut notes. Extremely smooth and tasty!

Pours a dark partially cloudy reddish brown colour. Head is full and frothy, tan. Aroma is very pleasent, nutty, and maple syrup. Taste is interesting, plenty of sweet nuttiness, but i also taste some green beans, maybe a little toffee or almond also. Either way an incredibly filling brew.

Pours a nice deep mahogeneyed(?) dark brownish color, with a nice, but quickely dissapating tan head. Hint of spearmint like sweetness accompanies a heavy nutty sweetness and some biscuity sweet malt. Nice rounded flavor with a good dose of caramel and earthy nuttiness, as well as some light floral hops accompanying a light bittersweet chocolate note, the hops show up with more strength in the finish. Pretty nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml. Darkish brown-copper and clear with a small, lasting head. Musty, malted grain and slight cocoa aroma. Flavor is toasted nut, earthy grains, spiced wood, slight yeast, and some sour-tart notes. Smooth, medium body has some nice tingle, and a dry finish. Nice fall-winter brown.

Delicious hazelnut flavor. I used to work at a coffee store and their Hazelnut coffee wishes that it had this flavor.

Bottle. Expensive. Pours with a soapy head, color is a dark, clear brown. Big roasty, nutty, dry aroma, quite nice. Almost woody. Taste is a huge nuttiness, earthy, funky, and dry. Finish brings a soft bitterness. Wow. A serious brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a dark red with an average tan head. Aroma is sweet malts with some toffee and alcohol. Flavor is a nice big dose of chocolate malts with some breads and roasted nuts. Finish is is smooth and has an alcohol aftertaste. I was ready to not like this one b/c of some of the beers i have had from this brewer in the past but this was an above par brown ale.
