3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber with a nose of like nutty dry earthy grains, and a little roasted chestnut. The taste is weird, like stale pecan créme and a light toffee cereal grain tone. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Btl. Pours clear,reddish brown color with a thin, tan head that vanished quickly, no lace. Smells of wood, caramel,raisins,molasses and a hint of nuts. Taste is sweet toffee with a faint roasted nut flavor with no hop prescence. Light body, watery texture,flat carbonation and minimal hop bitterness. Intriguing and interesting story on the bottle made me think this was going to be an awesome beer. Unfortunately it left me disappointed.

This is a pretty damn good brown ale. The lightly nutty and yeasty aroma reminds me of a peanut butter cookie. Flavors are pretty nutty too, with hints of cocoa and maybe even butter. With an oily texture and bittersweet toffee finish, you can’t go wrong with this session-able brown. Cheers!

On tap. Red-ish hue, zero head/lace. Sweet; zero pecans anywhere. More red apple than pecan. Still sweet, and not particularly good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer has a great brown color with a reddish hue to it. The beer has a nice foamy off white head and some lacing on the glass. The smell of the beer is great with a nice roasted malt smell, definitely a nutty smell from the pecans and a hint of chocolate on the back end. The taste of the beer is extremely similar to the smell with a start of roasted, smokey malt, a nutty flavor mixes in then follows with a mild chocolate finish. The mouthfeel of the beer is decent with th chocolate flavors lingering around and a hint of the roasted malt flavoring. Overall, this is a great beer and recommended for someone who likes brown ales. I can see why it won a bronze medal at the WBC.

2.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark Amber brew with the aroma of caramel with slight toast and pecans. Taste was alot of caramel with a good helping of pecans. Excellent aroma and taste, but that was about it. Now for the bad. First bottle had no head and felt almost flat and watered down. Second bottle had a small head and better carbonation but still seamed a bit watered down. third bottle was just flat with absolutely no carbonation. Seems to be no consistency here with carbonation and that is killing what could have become one of my favorite brews. Got three more to go, will update if they get better but somehow I doubt it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mahogany colored, with barely any head. Caramel, almost fruity, malt aroma with underlying notes of roast and nuts. Sweet toffee, toasted malt, some vague nuttiness that doesn’t really stand out as pecan, capped by a lingering caramel sweetness. Brown ales are admittedly not my favorite style but this is a decent beer if one were in the mood for malt.
