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.
