3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a dark brown color with a medium off-white head. Smell is a decent hop aroma with toasted caramel malts. The flavor is a hop forward brown with nice bitterness and citrus with the caramel, nuttiness and light cocoa. Great for style.

Great aroma, but there is a burnt Carmel taste that builds on the palate and the hops in this batch taste rather old.

12oz can from Shig, thanks man. Murky light brown with a light tan head. Aroma if biscuit dough, nuts, herbal hops and some mineral qualities. Flavor is rich and malty with notes of toffee, dough and nuts with a light hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Solid brown, very malty and not overly sweet.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Shared by turdferguson. Pours a murky reddish orange brown with one finger of sandy tan head that is very quick to break down. Nose is kind of weird, I’m getting acetaldehyde for sure. Kind of nutty with some biscuity notes. Nose screams bad fermentation. Awful flavor, old cereal and brown sugar with stale bread and paper coming through. Cidery with lightly tart fruity esters. Bleeeeeeh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from shig. Thanks Shawn! Cloudy dark copper pour with a thick tan head. Nose is lightly sweet, brown sugar, slightly nutty, lots of fruit, light bitterness. Flavor is similar, lightly chalky, some peat, dark fruits. Finishes kinda earthy and minerally. Solid effort outta bama. Definitely thin and lightly tart bit still more drinkable than many brown’s out there

What a nutty bitch! The can was a surprise, but I bought these because I couldn’t take bottles on the beach. Aroma was actually delicious average carbonation. Full taste, malty & bitter, not hoppy. Quiet aftertaste, very drinkable

Can courtesy of "justinatbeaumont". Colour...amber with a thin head. Nose...sort of Belgian-ish. Palate...slightly bitter, lightly funky, not much else. Not bad but not grand.
