A solid brown ale, not like Belle's Best, but actually pretty comparable. A solid brew on a cold fall day

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE TASTED: September 2, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint...OCCASION: O’s bust open a 10-3 lead in Game One of the ALDS... APPEARANCE: intimidatingly dark mahogany body; swiftly descending off-white head; flat, inconsistent up top... AROMA: thick, intense, sweet syrupy punch that encompasses a beautifully smoky embrace; hickory also mates with flattened hops to approximate a brown ale/porter mash-up ... PALATE: weighty, rather flat cola mouthfeel; teeth must withstand some energy, but the warmth sits idly on the tongue--heavy.....TASTE: sweet and malty with the syrup and smoke mitigating a rather uneventful flavor; a bit of biscuit late, but not what the aroma promises... OVERALL: Autumnal, yes--but the allure of its scent doesn’t measure up when sipped; lo alcohol content makes it sessionable....

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown body under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is nutty and lightly sweet with a touch of chocolate and burnt caramel. It tastes rather sweet up front, lots of caramel and toffee notes, which fade to a hazelnut like sweetness on the finish. Light bodied with minimal cling and soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty ho-hum even for the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wegmans Collegeville. Pours typical brown with a medium sized tan head that has average retention. The aroma has roasted malt, a slight bit of cocoa, and a tiny bit of coffee bean in the distance. The taste has a milk chocolate / roasted malt character. This is not complex but it is easy to drink and decent.
