3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. Deep amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and nuts. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of sweet malt, nuts and fruit. The finish is sweet with a short nutty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Pours an opaque dark brown with clearer dark brown edges. Virtually no head, lace, or legs. Big roasty nose with a toasty nutshell note. Creamy medium body with decently lively carb. Roast, black bread, and nuts on the mid palate. Certainly appealing enough, just not really complex enough to be very interesting.

Irish style nut brown ale is well suited for a dark winter night. Its aroma hints of nuts and chocolate. The color is dark brown and filtered. In taste, first flavor is nutty followed by the chocolate and roasted malts. The beer is medium to heavily bodied and drinks well.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured clear garnety-brown with a short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up nutty and caramel sugars laced with an odd fruity vinegar character.. smelled like it was possibly a little infected, but the bottle wasn’t old. The flavor found nutty and fruity sweetness at the core.. the sourness was still there, and it didn’t much help.. dried out on the back-end, but it still left residual sugars.. tacky sour fruit skins stuck on the finish. Light-medium bodied with a poor flow across the palate.. this was just off.
