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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I liked this beer a lot. Wasn’t anything to write home about, but a very good overall beer, especially if looking for a "lighter" dark beer. Appears a medium-dark brown, a little darker than amber, but has a thin density. Not very syrupy at all like some of the other brown ales or honey beers. Still has a good sweet taste like caramel and malts...very little hops in the flavor but just enough to notice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a clear, reddish copper appearance with a tan head. Bland, caramel, nutty, herbal aroma. Thin. A touch fruity, caramel, slight brown sugar, earthy flavor. Not bad but it is boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a deep brown color with a malty backbone and a nice easy drinking aftertaste. Nothing special though

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread and grains with a bit of toast. Flavor starts with bread and toast that last throughout the beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is one of the more uninteresting left hand beers. Toasty and nutty, but underwhelmingly so.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear nutty amber with a thin foamy off-white head. The aroma is as if someone took nutty and toasty malt and made it into a girls perfume. The flavor is really light and clean, perhaps too much so. Taste has some earthy toast and a wee bit of nuttiness. Semi-dry and light.
