BlackForestCO's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
On cask at the brewery. Poured a deep ruby-brown color with a moderate off-white head that slowly faded to a bubbly layer and left nice spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel, faint cocoa, moderate roasted malts, a light smoky sweetness, and a soft leathery earthiness. Smooth, lightly sweet entry leads into a caramel sweetness, giving way to a leathery earthiness pairs with a light hop dryness that follows into the finish with soft undertones of roasted malt and a sweet meatiness. Smooth, light mouth feel. Itís not as heavy as a lot of browns, but thatís what makes it appealing, itís so tasty and easy to drink. Another damn fine beer from the folks at Hogshead.

Tap - once again, Hogshead makes a brown that I not only find drinkable, butreally enjoy - combines a nice toffee sweetness with a balancing mineral bite, moderate mushroomy earthiness, a touch of leather and smoke - moderate bitterness and toasty malts - lightly peaty finish - excellent brown.

ajnepple (2183) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2014
On tap at Colorado Plus. Brown and clear appearance with ruby hues and an off-white head. Aroma and flavor of roasted malts, toasted grains, light toffee, caramel, earthy hops, coffee and bitter chocolate. Mild bitterness, crisp and smooth with an average body. Solid brown ale.

onceblind (4078) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Clear dark brown under a thin foamy tan head. Nice nose of earthy hazelnut and toasted English muffin. The flavor is smooth and subtly sweet with some nuttiness and a darkish malt tone, a bit of toasted biscuit, and sweetish brown ale tones in general. Nothing unique but nothing bad for sure.

Deep brown. Nose of toasted malt, touch of caramel. Taste is light toasted malt, light bitterness, some cocoa, and finally coffee as it warmed to room temp. Good brown-very drinkable and fairly complex.

theothermatt (181) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2013
On cask at Hogshead. Dark Amber. Toffee, nuts, caramel on the nose. Rich and slightly sweet. Very nutty and almost a hint of coffee on the back end. Quite nice.

Ratman197 (9814) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2013
On cask at Hogshead poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of cocoa, caramel, earthiness and light toasted malt. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toasted malt, cocoa, earthiness and light cocoa with a smooth lingering earthy finish.
