Bottle thanks to Lizzie and Daren. Pours a clear amber brown with a a fluffy tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has notes of bread and nuts with a bit of earthy grain underlying. Flavor is a bit thin but has a slight nuttiness and some earthy bread.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz single can from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Brown and hazy appearance with a light tan head. Mild aroma of dark malts, bread, chocolate, light toffee, light roast and earthy hops. Similar flavor, bittersweet, mild and pretty easy to drink, with a touch peppery rye spice. Sort of an amber-brown ale hybrid imo. Decent brown.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A choc aroma with a bit of malt and a touch of hop aroma come from this clear redy-brown brew with an offwhite head. This beer is chocolatey at first with with a malty flavor filled by a smoked aftertaste. It reminds me of s'mores. This brew is medium bodied with good carb. The choc is not overpowering and blends well covering up hop flavor and bitterness. Not a bad brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can, from Chris, I think. Poured into a snifter. Pours a very clear, dark red to light brown with orange highlights, and a medium off white head, with lots of tiny bubbles. A little cold, and hard to pick off the aromas, A slight toffee, crystal sweetness on the nose. Taste is initially sweet, sugary, and honey like. Dries out well in the finish, not much in the way of hops to speak of. a light bitterness to keep balance. Dangerously drinkable. Not sure how I feel about his being a brown, rather light and lacking on the chocolate character. Damn drinkable and good though. Just noticed there was smoke malt listed in the ingredients. I’m not getting any, but then again, I had a smoked swamp ape (whael) earlier tonight.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Traditional brown color, medium depth, topped with a finger of sticky beige head. Malty aroma, earthy, some chocolate malt. Hints of campfire… it becomes much stronger in the taste, but not too strong. Earthy, floral, smoky, nutty… a complex layering of flavors. Finishes with a lingering floral bitterness and campfire smoke. Nice.
