3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice drinkable brown ale. Not quite a session ale but definately an ale that I would drink more than one of.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a really tame porter, that has cleverly disguised itself as a bigger brown ale. Lots of roasted maltiness, creamy mouthfeel, malt balls, and toffee, with some really likeable milk chocolate in the afterpalate. As it warms, hazelnut flavor join in the boquet. Alright, but needs some work.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear and dark brown with burgundy highlights. Creamy and thickish on the tongue with a lively carbonation. Notes of sweet toffee, toasted bread and caramelized nuts. A thick and sweet brown ale that yearns to be a porter. Too sweet -- and not bitter enough -- for me, though.
