The pour is brown in color with an off-white head. Nose features roasted malt, toast, light smoke, and a hint of brown sugar. A light caramel sweetness along with a very mild banana note. The flavor has caramel malt sweetness, very sweet, in fact. Light grass and brown sugar. A bit toasty with mild roasty, mild bitterness. Really just found this to be okay.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a solid brown color with aroma of mild chocolate and roasted nuts. Taste is a little harsh, with a surprising bitterness. A flavorful brown ale that that seemed over complicated. The sweetness seemed lost in the beer and was overpowered by the smoky flavor.
