3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nice aroma of roasted malts with a hint of coffe. Pours a opaque brownish black with a mostly diminishing tan head and slight lacing. The taste is chiefly bitter. Roasted malt up front, a quick nut flavor in the middle, and a grainy finish. There is strong bitter aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Fizzy mouthfeel. Overall, while enjoyable, a little more bitter than I’d like in a brown ale.

Drank from a bottle purchased at Wegmans. Has a nice malty/nutty aroma to it. Tastes a bit overly nutty and a bit watered down.

a pleasant beer, but not my favorite brown ale. Somewhat bland aroma. Appearance was good.
