3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle a deep brown with a slight reddish tint and a small tan head. Aroma was of roasted malts and hops. Flavor was roasted (almost burnt) malts with a good hop finish (coffee like) as the beer comes up in tempature turns more towards a bitter chocolate. Overall not a bad brew.

Nice aroma, head doesn’t hang around long, thin mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate, sweet malt, hops to balance. A nice brown ale, but I wish it had more mouthfeel to it. I’d like to try it on tap, might improve my rating.

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.

Dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma is nutty, malty, a little sweet. Smooth, a little bit of a creamy feel. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours darker than most porters. Aroma is malty and a bit fruity. The flavor is like a brown ale that is trying to impersonate a barleywine: dry, dark fruit and toasted malt sweetness, with subtle notes of lightly roasted coffee and a bit of nuttiness underneath. A little thin-bodied, but flavorful and enjoyable to drink.

Brune aux reflets rouges. Arômes de malt, de caramel et de noix. En bouche, elle est très maltée avec des notes de chocolat. En finale, on perçoit des notes de caramel et de noisettes. Très légère.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice reddish-brown body. Pleasant aroma with a uniquely delicious nut-brown ale taste. Hop finish that was not overpowering, but heavily prevalent. Caramel flavors were also present. I was pleasantly suprised with this one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Color is dark chestnut brown. Frothy thick off white head that diminished to a thin layer that left solid lacing on the glass. There isn’t much aroma when it’s cold, but when it warms its roasted nuts. It reminds me of the holidays. Medium carbonation that leaves the mouth clean. Taste is simple. Roasted malt and nuts. The finish is slightly dry. Very drinkable. But nothing over the top. I would drink again. Thanks for sharing AirForceHops.

Pours a dark brown with a khaki head aroma is mild coffee and picking up a spent grain type bread aroma flavoris mild coffee malty and toast not getting the nut flavors that are inidacted on the label. Finishes dry and clean a drinkable beer for sure not much else to it
