This is a pretty thick brown ale with a fairly heavy coffee element to it. Just heavier than it should be or what I wanted anyway.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Sweet caramel malt and light molasses aroma. Clear chestnut with a small beige head, some spotty lacing. Nutty, roasty caramel malt flavor with a very slight bitterness in the finish. Light, crisp body, tingly carbonation. Everything about this was a little on the light side, but sometimes I prefer a lighter brown ale. Today was a hot day, and this was exactly what I wanted.

12 oz bottle. Way-too large spongy foam atop a clear mahogany body. Earthy-spiced molasses and dry grass in the aroma. Taste is watered down cola, dry grass, and spicy molasses. Near-medium body is smooth with low carbonation (plus) and to the sweet side (minus).

Very dark brown, huge white head. Smells like caramel and brown sugar. , with a touch of cinnamon. Flavor is not as sweet as the aroma would indicate, with more hoppy bitterness. Actually not bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours average in all accounts. Almost no smell whatsoever - have to take deep whiffs to detect any sort of aroma, which ultimately is somewhat chocolate and toffee-like. Tastes like Newcastle Brown Ale light, but again, have to search and search and search for flavor! C’mon! May not be skunky, but with this much lack of flavor, I’ll still take Newcastle, not to mention other better brown ales I’ve reviewed. Aftertaste is a little better - some bread - but I shouldn’t have to *search* that *long* for smell or flavor. Not impressed!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours, as one would expect, a brown. Aroma is sweet, as is the flavor. Not a whole lot more to it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Not much going on in this one. I did detect a mild note of caramel malt, roast, and nuts, but they were not so easy to detect. Slightly thin. It needs more work.
