3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Uncertain what a Texas brown ale is, but a good beer regardless. Looks great in the glass with a tan head and dark brown coloration. Flavors of roasted malt, nuts, toast, and brown/chocolate malt on the palate. Has more of a hop bite than I initially expected. Perhaps brown IPA would be a better description of the style. Or Texas brown ale, whatever floats your boat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Hop Farm. Pours a dark brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma of dark roast, roasted nuts, bitter piney hops, bitter chocolate. Flavor of bitter roast up front, bitter hops, bitter chocolate. A tasty brown IPA - lots of bitter roast and bitter hops. Light palate. Overall pretty easy to drink and an interesting take on a brown ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a medium brown with a lighter head. Aroma is of slight cocoa and coffee with some grassy hops. Taste has a sling tang to it and is a tad on the aggressive side.
