3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz non-returnable bottle from variety pack - pours deep amber with khaki head. Nose is roast and coffee. Flavor adds toast and a tad nutty. A little richer than the black ale 2012, minus the hoppy finish. Bitterness is more chocolate/coffee driven. Chocolate finish, but coffee goes away.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Brown ales suck. Clear brown, medium tan head, nice lacing., aroma is brown. Flavor is brown, but actually not too bad. Brown sugar, rice, toffee, coffee. Medium sweet, lacking all bitterness. Medium body, a bit creamy. Ok, this one doesn’t quite suck. So there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from the six type sampler case. Just alright, certainly not in the top of its class. You get what you pay for and this case came pretty cheaply.

12oz bottle. Clear dark red / brown color. Thin off-white / khaki head. Moderate carbonation. Medium body. Not an incredible texture. Toasted malt, light hop, light chocolate. Flavor is fine, but not really interesting or appealing. Light sweet taste. Really average beer...
