3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - aroma is just beautiful! Plenty of malt with a bit of roasty goodness. A touch of chocolate. Deep brown body with a sizeable beige head. A nice roasty flavor as well. I don’t get a lot of the nut. At least initially. It does come to the front as the beer warms. A nice nut brown, but still a nut brown.

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.

Beautiful dark color. This was a mild beer with floral note and an almost hidden coffee after note.

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.
