Don’t know how this one scored so low, it’s beautiful, full flavored, malty with just the right amount of hops. The aroma is mild and it pours a dark cloudy brown with a frothy head. Honestly, when I’m drinking this I imagine it’s what Tolkien’s Hobbits or Dwarves would brew or what they might have had in old England. Well worth trying for fans of malty ales, gamers and Tolkien fans.

Bottle @ The Butcher’s Block, Sarasota, FL - Dark Brown ale with a very smooth malty flavor. Not sweet and not bitter...just perfect! Very enjoyable. I had one for breakfast :)

Dark and roasty and well balanced. This is a well balanced beer with a complex taste to it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one left me wanting. Faint nut aroma. Average color and a watery palate. Average and somewhat light mild malt and nut flavor. Meh.

Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, deep brown color with tan head. Aroma notes of toasted malt sweetness and light chocolate. Taste adds some nuttiness and caramel. Light body, moderate-low carbonation, sticky with sweet roast finish. Nice brown ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with red highlights and a pillowy, fine-grained, soft light brown head. Nose is smoke, toast, roast pecans, and polished wood. On the tongue, there’s dark caramel, milk chocolate, tea, smoke, and vanilla. Really well balanced, with a good mouthfeel and a long finish shifting into molasses. Tasty.
