2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at BTBF. Pours with a murky brown hued body with an off-white head. Aromas are nutty, a touch of grapefruit, medium lactic, sour wine, oak and papaya with some malty notes. Flavors are nutty, toasty, oak. Light brett and various funky phenols. Malty, low vanillin. Estery. Medium carbonation. I am not really sure what to make of this. Messy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is full of toasted malt with some caramel malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get some toasted malt and nuttyness, as well as a bit of woodiness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Dark brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, light roast, and a bit of vanilla oak. Taste of nuts, caramel, vanilla, and some drier wood tannins.

Imagine that. A brown cloudy beer with a thick off-white head. Aroma is burnt malt. Flavor is roasted malt and milky hoppiness. Wtf? Drink one more round.

Delicious beer. Well balanced sweetness. Spicy... like pepper spicy. Malty taste. Definitely one of the best brown ales I have ever tasted. Cloudy.
