3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 22oz. bottle, Pours with a huge, frothy, light brown head with excellent retention. Beer is dark brown.
Nose is nutty, sweet, and malty with some European hops. The flavor is decent, but not as good as the smell. Uses a somewhat darker roast malt than average for style. Has a mild, nutty-earthy-bitter finish. Medium-light bodied with ample carbonation. ABV seems higher than 6% in this interesting, earthy and rather unrefined brown.

Not a bad brown ale. It pours a very dark brown but has almost no carbonation, the head retention is almost non-existant. The beer does does have a nice dry bitter finish following the malty sweetness though.

Bottle shared by Allen, thanks! Pours a clear dark brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot of musty dark grain with some bread and a hint of sweetness. Flavor has a good amount of earthy grain with some bread and a hint of caramel.

A surprisingly rich brown ale, malty and nutty without being too sweet. Our go-to bottle of choice while on Kauai.
