2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear mid-brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate and nuts. Getting towards watery and far too fizzy. Sweet with chocolate and caramel (where did the nuts go?) grassy bitterness at the end is a little much to allow it to be bland and soothing but not enough to be much of a feature.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a nice nut brown ale that has a slight hop aroma and flavor. It is similar but not quite as good as the Rogue effort from the same region of the country. This beer is smooth and goes with everything.

Acquired from hayduke. Thanks Ron! It poured a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was nutty and malty. It had a medium palate and the taste was also malty and nutty, with a hint of chocolate. Decent.
