3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle into a pint. Pours a clear medium brown, with a small tan head. Nose is dark roast malt and cocoa. Taste is that of a typical brown, with a bit of nuttiness and a dry finish. Oddly sweet in the middle, but the hop finish kills the sweetness. Not bad, but nothing great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Porter aroma, cacao, bit of chocolate, nuts. Like this aroma. Normally don’t really fancy brown ale aroma but this I like. Taste is complete different. It much more like brown ale. Bit nutty, caramel, malty. Easy, drinkable, not what I would expect from brown ale. It’s ok, but nothing special having on mind it’s from California.

Pour is a dark brown with a fluffy yet thin head. Very dark color in a full glass, but as you drink it, shades of tan and gold appear. Smell is hazelnuts, almonds and coffee. Taste is a tad watery, but mostly there: a solid nutty and dark ale toast
