3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours murky dark, reddish brown with thick, lasting, off-white head. Aroma. Sweet baked bean-like aroma of brown sugar. Brown-sugary sweetness, with molasses and flavors and gooeyness and a slight burnt-caramel aftertaste. Very little hops, resulting in a lingering sticky sugariness. Malty flavors are tasty, but lacks any semblance of hops for balance.

Caramel, light chocolate aroma.
Taste is caramel malt, mild nuts, creamy.
A very decent, moderate brown ale.
Satisfying and simple.

Nice appearance, dark brown but still translucent, nice in the light. Healthy head, but a little sudsy. Nutty sweet aroma, molasses flavor, a bit carbonated.

12 oz bottle poured into a glass. Dark brown with a creamy colored 1 finger head that lingers. Molasses, caramel, bread, malty notes. Its pretty light, very drinkable, but nothing really stands out to me about this beer. Just plain and ordinary.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pour is a clear deep brown amber with an ivory head, average lacing. Big caramel notes on the nose with brown sugar and molasses. Taste is spot in with the aroma, caramel and toffee with a dark fruit presence, just a touch of hops. Finish is clean, mouthfeel a bit viscous, but what I expected from the rich malt. I got this as a beer of the month and am really enjoying it, and thankful that I have a chance to rate it!

22oz bottle pours clear bright brownish red with a finger of sudsy head. Nose is molasses, maple, bready, nutty. Taste is a syrupy molasses bomb, slick, dark bread. Finish is a syrupy smoky molasses mess. Pretty bad.
