Bottle shared by Drew. Thanks! Pours a deep brown with reddish hints and a tan head. Nose is big bourbon and char. Some caramel and toast as well. Minimal hop aromatics, dominated by the char. On tasting, clean, touch of booze. Caramel and toast. Pretty solid as far as stock ales go. Should probably be reclassed as an old ale. Balanced.

Bottle. The pour is a bright reddish brown. The aroma is all malt and toffee. The drink is more toffee, light booze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle:   Darker brown, moderate frothy beige like head, fairly nice lacing.   Malty/biscuity nose, somewhat sweet, little hop to be seen.   Faint cocoa as well.   Malty tongue, definite biscuit, little hop presense, soft cocoa or chocolate notes.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A bit more hop on the finish.   Malty, soft chocolate malts, like a very nice Brown Ale.   Clean, enjoyable, and tasty.

750 ml bottle served in a Founders snifter. Thank to kevanb for the share. A: Pours a clear brown color with light tan head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly leaving behind some spots of lace. S: Light chocolate with a little nuttiness to it. Mild roast with a light, earthy hop backing. T: Minimal chocolate with some earthy green hops. Roasted malts with a little nuttiness. Slightly watery with a sweet malt palate. M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation and a smooth, sweet finish. O: Decent across the board, but lacking complexity. Slightly watery. Serving type: bottle

2012 bottle. Pours a dark amber-brown with an off-white head that leaves lacing. Aroma of malt, hops, caramel, grass, wood, yeast. Taste is crisp, starts with sweet malt and caramel, then picks up a hoppy, yeasty bite, with a hint of dark fruits. Lingering crisp malt and yeast that ends watery. Not bad, but not terribly interesting.

Aroma of nuts, malts and coffee. Pours red brown with lacing. Taste is typical brown malt with a hint a caramel. Meh.
