3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a growler. Aromas of toffee, dark chocolate, a bit of smoke, and a decent amount of roasted light malts. Itís a reddish-brown color as opposed to a more traditional flat brown and itís a bit more translucent than a typical brown ale. It starts with a light sweetness, more roasted malts/toffee flavor throughout and finishes slightly bitter. Itís definitely on the low side for carbonation for a brown ale, but I imagine thatís by design. Itís very smooth as a result, and it lets the bitterness hang around just a bit longer on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head. The nose is chocolaty, tossed, and lightly roasty maltiness with a slight leafy hoppiness. Some lighter notes of coffee and maybe a hint of burnt rubber. The flavor is OK, a little bit of that burnt rubber that I got in the aroma, but itís not horrible. More toasted and slightly nutty maltiness, fairly heavy sweetness, minimal hops, though thereís a light bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied and on the clingier side with soft carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Roasty toast aroma. Flavors are of mocha kissed by orange, with a mild suggestion of honey and coffee. The little bits of orange and honey sweetness add wonderful complexity.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grabbed a 6-pack of this while in the Asheville area over the holidays. This reminded me somewhat of our Maduro brown by Cigar City here in FL. Malt is a little more roastier and heavier on the chocolate. Almost like a malta. Semi-creamy texture. I would look out for this one again.
