3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can. Thick unfiltered brown body, hints of orange-red. Respectable enough off-white/beige head. A really nice Brown Ale really well executed, very clean and sessionable for the ABV. The sweetness catches up to you by mid-bottle, but this is still a really enjoyable, well done beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can courtesy of StFun. Thanks. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color with a small cream head that slowly fades to a fine film. The aroma is muted with well roasted grains, honey and bitter nuts. The taste features well roasted grains, mocha, coffee, bitter walnuts and a bit of honey. The palate was full, smooth and creamy; the carbonation was soft. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Top shelf brown ale, loved it.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pleasant initial impressions from this can of beer. Smooth malty aroma. Now, on the tongue there is a surprize, enough stout to call it impy or foreign stout. Ches, strong bitter alky feeling stout. This lager lover was expecting a smoooth brown ale, but forgetabouddit. What else can be said? Its near 7% and it tastes like. Not impressed at the end, too much for my girlie taste buds. There, you have it; a smooth looking dark brown ale that has a smack in the chops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to errl for sharing this can. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is very nice with some toffee and caramel notes as well as some nuttiness and chocolate. The flavor is similar with some ashy chocolate coming through up front and some nuts and toffee also present. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Can. Pour is a nice deep brown with a fairly large tan head that is about half way between suds and foam. Aromas are lightly hoppy with a little fruit and a bit of brown sugar. Flavor is interesting, kind of chocolate and orange.
