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.

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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours a clear mahogany, medium to large frothy head, decent lacing, with little to no carbonation. Malty nose, slightly biscuity, and a tad bit roasted. Maybe light hints of chocolate malt. Slight malt flavor, a bit sweet, with a hint of carob. Minor astringency. Medium bodied, but the mouthfeel seems a bit thin. Malty finish (albeit thin), semi-sweet, but with a slight sour/astringent twang. Blech...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 Aroma of nuts and roast, with something that is a little odd too. Pours brown - no shit. Somewhat sweet with roasted nuts, and something weird. Finishes with a moderate hop bitterness. I don’t get what is going on here. It is drinkable, but odd.

Pours a reddish brown. Small tan head. Nutty head along with some sweeter malt notes. Taste is hoppily nutty. Bittered hops and some nutty notes along with fainter malt tones. The body is a little thin. Some dryness towards the finish. Decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Clear brown color with light head and average lacing. The nose is lightly herbal with a bit of musky caramel and light hops; a bit of bitter cocoa. The flavor is chewy, lighter in body than I like in a brown with a balanced finish. The flavor is toasty with some light cherry and cardboard notes. Finishes lightly dry, eh, not that great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark cherry wood brown color with a moderate taupe head. Initial DMS scents slowly fade to reveal some light roasted malt, hints of herbal hops and hint of coffee. Lightly sweet flavors. I somehow get a musty roasted flavor. I think I understand what they were going for, enjoy it for what it is, but I don’t think it quite works for me. An Irish red/brown. Ok. 2/10
