3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Cola brown and bright with little head retention. Nose is subtle but hints at gooey chocolate ganache, rum and raisin icecream, hazelnut liqueur offering a boozy spice, and a touch of red timber. Quite nutty on the palate with a malty and dry, scorched wood finish. Hazelnut dominates upfront. There is chocolate in there but the nuttiness reigns supreme. Drinks really easily. No alcohol shows which is a shame. Body is light to medium light with soft carbonation. Sweetness does build but the palate is still left parched. Light spice of hop late. Quaffable but doesn’t excite or inspire. (12fl. Oz, no date stamp, Int’l Beer Shop, Leederville)

Pours a clear dark reddish-brown with a small creamy light-brown head. The aroma is all nuts and malt-- a typical Brown Ale. Flavour of malt, hops, chocolate and nuts is a little too mild. Medium bodied.

12 oz. bottle at home from notes. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have some roasted malts, a decent shot of chocolate, spicy hop character, some earthy notes, body is lighter and the mouthfeel is thin and watery. OK brown ale.

Bready, malty and thick. I taste a hint of chocolate but the caramel shines through the most. Little hop presence, malt aroma.
