4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle pours a medium, light tan head. Aromas of coffee, similar to a porter. Rich, full, well balanced malty flavor of chocolate, with a really bright note lingering. Maybe a bit over-carbonated. At present I see I’m the highest rating on the page. Oy. I like it. So shoot me already.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours to a red hued brown body with a very thick and lasting rocky light beige head. The aroma is a nutty, lightly floral, and brown sugar aroma. The flavor is interestingly roasty. Nutty but not overly so. Dry roast, sweet dark and lightly burnt sugars. The palate is roasty, creamy/velvety.

Bottle. Pretty good, but standard. Malty, and some bitterness. Decent and nothing to call home about

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decently hopped, but not enough to impress. Fairly malty, but not overly sweet as some nut browns tend to get. The aroma and flavor were caramel sweet with hints of raw sugar and roasted coffee. All in all not a bad example.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice showing from a competent brewer (although, not special). The appearance was dark brown with a thin head that fizzled away with the carbonation. Lacing was decent. The aroma was nutty and caramel-like. Flavor featured a decent hop showing underneath the usual brown ale flavors. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel was moderate to light for the style with significant carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown with a red tint. A pleasant sweet nutty caramel aroma and taste. Nice carbonation level with a creamy head. Medium to light body, not a bad beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle-Poured a dark brown, almost black with a small, nearly creamy head the dissipated. The taste was mostly of malts along with the aroma. Nice, but it just coming up short in comparision to its appearance.

Bottled. Pours a dark amber/ruby color. Malty roasted aroma. Mildly roasted flavor up front. A hint of sweetness. Quite malty along with some nuttiness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lots of creamy off white foam ride on top of this almost black, garnet tinged dark brown beer.
Brown sugar aroma.
Heavy sweet caramel/brown sugar flavor. Liquid Sugar Babies.
Slightly over carbonated. Too sweet and one dimensional for me, but this is an easy drinking beer than undeveloped palate would probably find quite enjoyable.
