2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured dark reddish brown with thin off white head from bottle, aroma had notes of sweet toffee, molasses, some roasted grain notes, slightly acidic, but even more caramel in there. Taste is a bit bitter, but still very sweet and one dimensional, with some caramel and toffee, some slight bread, maybe a touch of roast, with a slightly dry, sweet finish.

Grand Lake, Co. - on tap - Sagebrush BBQ. Pours a deep dark brown, medium thick khaki colored head. Sweet aroma, some chocolate and nuttiness. Flavor is sweet as well, dominated by nutty flavor, some brown sugar and a hint of toffee. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Good companion to the venison, elk and wild boar sausage I had for dinner.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured out a weird cola brown with very very little head, didnít last long either. Aroma was pretty swell, with notes of caramel, brownish chocolate malt, and some slight nuttiness. Too bad the taste was kinda flat. Unexciting tones of stale caramel, brown malt, and some walnut. Odd bitterness at end, and off-sweet. Light bodied. Just an average, or mediocre Brown Ale.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted from a 12 oz bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Dark reddish brown appearance with a white/brown head. Brown, slightly skunky, and slightly nutty aroma with a little caramel. Kind of a weird nutty flavor in the brown malty body. Overall just kind of a weird unknown flavor.

bottle. Pours dark red instead of brown with no head. Sweet aroma, bubblegum, along with toffee. Flavor almost has a sort of cherry cola flavor to it, hardly tastes like beer. Is this a bad bottle or something? I donít think so... I didnít have high expectations for this one but damn, itís pretty bad. This will be the first beer I drainpour.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled on 9/11/2010. This brown ale pours a dark brown color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, sweet and a touch nutty. A medium bodied brown ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, caramel and nutty. The hops are earthy. Little to no carbonation. Kind of overly sweet and somewhat cola like, its a little thin and watery as well. Not a good combination. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.
