3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap the pub poured into a tulip...Medium brown pour, nice red in the middle. Nice light tan carbonation...The aroma is malty, caramel, bread, honey, a hint of cherry, a little nut, yummy and complex...The taste is like the aroma, sweet notes of honey, cherry, and nuts but a little coffee to balance this out. I didnít know what to expect out this organic brew but it came together really well. My favorite non bottled beer of the weekend.

Sample at Jackie Oís Barrel Aged Beer Fest 2010. Pours dark brown with tan head. Almost looks like a porter. Aroma is roasty with notes of coffee, and a little caramel/honey. Flavor is also roasty with some sweet honey notes and nuttiness prevalent. Slightly bitter finish that lingers just a bit.

Sample during Jackie Oís BBDA and Oil of Aphrodite Release and Barrel aged Beer Festival on 9/11/10. Reddish brown pour with a medium tan head. Roasty coffee nose with nuts and a bit of fruit. Roasty coffee flavor with some chocolate to go along with the nutty character. Also has a nice bitter finish, whether due to hops or the roast.

At brewpub. Very dark brown, almost porter like. A thick malty backbone, crisp, and some chocolate notes. A nice size head with good lacing. A mild dry finish. Quite a tasty brown ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at bodega many times in the past few weeks. I always skipped over this at the brewpub to choose other beers because I never was much of a fan of brown ales, this is not like other brown ales ive had. Aroma had a nice roastiness to it. Flavor had a light choc coffee flavor to it and was really easy to drink. Has some stout like properties. This is one of those beers I would love to have in cans and I could probably drink 6 in a sitting pretty easily and not be bored by it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a very dark brown color with a medium thin tan head that recedes steadily. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of coffee and honey. Medium body with flavors of coffee, hops and sweet honey nuts. The finish is moderately bitter coffee with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Not fully organic according to the brewmaster but a solid beer regardless.

On tap at the brewpub during Ohio Brew week - Pours brown with a pretty nice offwhite head. Aromas of honey, nuts, and slight hops. Flavor was lots of honey, some caramel, and a good amount of nuts.. Also slight pine hops. Easy drinking with a slight bitter finish. This was a pretty solid brown ale.
