2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear dark deep chestnut brown with a lingering light khaki head. Earthy nutty aroma with some very light chocolate tones and a light bit of toffee. Body was a little too light, and the flavor was a little too thin. Average brown ale taste of light chocolate and light toffee with a very subtle hop bitterness on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours deep, deep brown;almost black, with a small light brown head. There is a small ring of lace that resides. Some roasted malts, mixed with caramel come to mind in the aroma. The flavor is packed with coffee, roasted malts, toast, spritzy carbonation, and finishing somewhat hoppy. A slight chocolate note comes out as it warms a bit. Nicely done brew and something that I will drink again.

I?m not normally the type of guy that likes nut ales but thus one is smooth. There is a hint of nut and chocolate. It finishes with wonderful palate. Overall I would buy this beer again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Pours a nearly opaque deep brown, with a small off-white head which nevertheless lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Irish coffee and hazelnut aromas mix with some toasty malt on the nose. Mildly peppery and spicy hops up front give way to a slight burnt toast flavour and some hazelnut and pecan malt notes in the mid-palate. There is a touch of woody Irish coffee to finish. A decent and fairly interesting brown ale.
