3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can at the Dublin Irish Festival.
This is no ordinary brown ale. Bold and rich with a well hidden ABV. This applies to both the aroma and the flavor.
This malt bomb also has a relatively full and nicely smooth feel.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Canned 6/10/2015 enjoyed 7/21/2015 in a pint glass.
Look - Light brown almost red body. Lighter tan very very fine bubbled head. Spotty lacing, no rings. It almost looks nitro.
Smell - Sweet, roasted malt. Faint citrus. Faint hops. Earth. Caramel.
Taste - I always say a a hoppy porter or stout is 1/4 IPA. Well, this is 1/5. Light hops. Caramel. Malt. Chocolate. Light coffee.
Feel - So creamy. Not too heavy. No alcohol or bitterness on tongue.
Overall - Up until this point I have gone for the rare MadTree beers. I’ve had the barrel aged version but not the regular version. I am trying not to be biased but this a really good beer.

Can. This is a nice deep brown ale that veers towards the full roasted flavours you see in darker brews.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours like a cola with a massive, pillowy beige head. Exceptional cling. Aromas are caramel, chocolate and dark fruit. Flavors are cocoa and caramel, toffee, sweet dark fruit. Licorice and dark chocolate in the finish. Noticeable alcohol warmth. Creamy, but lively, mouthfeel. Fairly dry finish. Very nice brown ale!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate malt, nutty, light roasted malt. Flavor is that and a light hoppy bite on the finish. Really enjoyable malty brown with a light hop background. Good.
