2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big carbonation bite, a thin and watery middle, followed by a pleasant, slightly sweet caramel finish. No real hops to speak of.

An ok beer. The aroma is nice, sweet and malty, but the flavor falls flat. Not thick or bold enough, not enough malt flavor. They just need to kick it up a notch if they want to compete with Bell’s Best Brown.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle, pour very dark orange with a thick off white head, no lacing. Definite chocolate aroma, some bourbon as well, kind of reminds me of a faint GI bourbon county stout. Taste is smokey and chocolatey with slight alcohol mouthfeel. smooth palate for me, just like most browns. Very Very VERY average beer here.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear, amber-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweeter, hazelnut malts. A light cherry and some other fruits as well, but pretty weak overall. Flavor is slightly thin and watery up front. Nutty malts and a light cherry fruit mixture before this actually finishes with some flavor. Light, earthy bitterness and a toasty toffee make the finish somewhat enjoyable. Fairly dry with a medium length aftertaste. Overall, despite the enjoyable backend of this beer, there’s too much inconsistency throughout. Weak, nutty and malty aroma with a mostly thin, watery flavor. Eh...
