3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL Bottle. Thanks Sean! Clean, malty aroma, with toast, caramel, and brown sugar. Flavors dole out similar lightly brown maltiness. This is clean, somewhere between an Amber and a Brown and I think a reasonable interpretation of what a relatively low-hop rustic malt beer would have been. Itís easy drinking, richly flavored, and easy to enjoy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Honekybra for this 750 mL bottle. Crushed with TheRon and a Roach. Pours clear dark ruby/brown with a tan lacing. About as malty as a beer gets. Aromas of sweet caramel and toffee, backed up with subtle roasted characters. Flavor is also sweet upfront with roast balancing it out. More thin-bodied than expected but drinkable as hell. A superior brown. Havenít said that in a long time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL thanks to the DC crew. Pours a clear, deep red. Tan foam with good, rocky retention and webby lacing. Nose is sticky, Twizzlers, hazelnut, pepper, coffee. Taste is bitter coffee, peppercorn, chili pepper heat. Palate is thinner, tangy, sharp bitter chocolate and coffee. Very interesting and enjoyable. I guess a coffee brown ale. Nice.
