1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Deep amber in colour with a strong copper, ruby and orange tint. All topped by a one centimetre tan head. Really nice looking! Aroma of cardboard, corn syrup, stale malt, old hops and some gross candy. Light-bodied; Strong bitter metallic flavour with really potent malt and nut tastes that lasts quite a while and tastes horrible in the mouth. Aftertaste shows a really strong and offensive beer that isn’t worth drinking at all. Overall, definitely worth passing this one up. I didn’t like it one bit after the appearance. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 22-September-2006.

Has a great looking color to it. A nice dark autumn color with no fog or haze in it. Has a burnt nutty smell to it with hints of malts. Tastes great! This stuff is smooth! Has that nutty brown ale flavor to it that is as smooth as they come. It has some sweet little after taste to it. Great stuff!!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
brown indeed...a deep brown with light brown head and tastes of grains mainly barley with a hint of dark cherry (that is just a touch sweet with tar molassas), metal and gravy master. this taste calms down after some few moments to that of a barley and a burnt nut flavored cherry liquor flavor that is deep and different though modestly so. frothy small carbonation that dissipates quickly. well paired for the time of year. clean dishwater type hop character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours mahogany brown into a shaker. Pancake head with medium retention recedes to skim surface leaving no lacing. Sweet caramel and chocolate malt aromas. Crisp with sweet nut caramel and candy corns upfront. Lasting chocolate hop middle and an odd cloying chalky sourness in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Deep brown-amber color. Toffee aroma. I found this to be quite a nice full-bodied Brown ale. Rich and malty on one hand, but the solid hop backbone really balances it into something solid. My bottle is a little past it’s prime, but the beer manages to hold up quite well. Has some good nutty character as well. Good beer.
