3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can (also on draft). Pours a clear cola brown with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice blend of roasted malt, chocolate and some coffee notes. The body is better than most browns as is the flavor. Almost drinks like a porter. Solid brown with a twist.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first Madtree beer, picked up a Dutchs. Unfiltered. thick red-brown, turbid, with some a questionable amount of white floaty specks. Nonetheless, this is a really great Brown Ale. Massive sweet brown sugar malt tones. Coffee. Vanilla Even some hops fighting to get piece of the spotlight. Bold and well done, yet maybe a little sloppy and in need need of refinement..get the floaties out.

From a can. Pours opaque brown with a thin off white head. Tastes like burnt coffee, toast, very roasted and smokey. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells malty, nutty, and like faint coffee.

Sample at The Ohio Taproom. Pours a clear brownish-amber color with a medium tan head that recedes gradually. Strings of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, coffee and hops in the nose.
