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.

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.

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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark brown color with a thick brown head. Aroma is of dark furits, sweet malts, and maybe a little hops, but not much. Flavor is the same, Not really that excited about this brew. Not really sure why people are rating it that high, there are a very large number of beers I would buy over this one.
