3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft... ODBF2006... Clear, amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Malty nose with some nice, light chocolate notes. The flavor is chocolatey as well. A tad on the sweet side of balance. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Finishes chocolatey and mildly bitter. Did I get around to saying anything about this brew being chocolatey at all?

Bottle. Pours a chestnut-brown with creamy, long lasting head. Malty aroma. A hint of hops in the end, but mainly a caramel-ish taste. Smooth and not as full bodied as I would like for a brown ale.

Draft. Pours copper, with aroma of malt, toffee, brown sugar, hops, and cabernet. Tastes malty, rich, with some hops, brown sugar, and red wine at the finish. Nice balance and a great finish. I put this one up there with DFH Indian Brown Ale as great examples of the style.
