3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub, 6% ABV
Cloudy dark amber color. The aroma is lightly dusty; the mouthfeel is slightly less dry than the other beers here; malt and caramel flavor, a bit roasty, lightly ashy, with correct bitterness.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
On tap at the brewery
Light hazelnut brown colour with a very big hazelnut aroma. It’s a local crop, so I wonder if they’ve actually got some in there. Harsh astringency, minerally, brackish...this is really tough to drink. The bitterness has come out all wrong, and the malts don’t offer much save a light hazelnut note. Totally undrinkable. I only wish this was a cookie-cutter brown.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep brown colour, thin light brown head. Very sweet and nutty aroma, brown sugar and a bit toffeeish. Flavour is super sweet and sugary with some nutty malts, light bitterness and faint astringency. Overly sweet, but I’ve had worse.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery
Clear medium brown color. Some tobacco, maple, and some simple wood and nut notes. Dry palate. Smells like maple syrup, very sweet, with peanuts as well. Drinkable, palatable, but simple. Some spices and chocolate in the finish are redeeming.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Crystal clear dark amber with dense and creamy tan head and light streaky lace. Nutty, toasty and brown sugary nose. All those notes come back for the mid-palate, on top of a light, clean, easy-drinking body and soft carb. Big leafy and earthy hop notes erupt at the finish and hold with a cling. This is a clean, clearly defined, and fresh-tasting beer. Not sure if it was a recipe tweak and a brand new keg or what, but clearly a better beer than what’s been served under this handle in the past.
