4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can, canned on 11/10/2014. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear brown color with some reddish tints to it. Head retention is good, and there’s a lot of lacing. The brew smells like brown sugar, nuts, vanilla and some coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some toasted malt and a light bitter hoppiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. I think this is a good brown ale, I wouldn’t mind buying this again. Nice to see the MadTree cans finally come to Columbus! $9.99 a 6-pack.

Pours a dark brown, taste a little smokey light brown sugar taste. Half way between a porter and a brown ale.

Can, as pictured. Definitely a lot bigger and bolder than a standard brown, I was pleased with this. Heavy on the brown sugar I thought. Packed a little bit of a punch.

Thanx Vic for bringing some of your home turf up here.
Reviewed from notes, this was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance had a nice dark brown color with a nice looking one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute.
The smell had a nice roasted nuttiness coming across a caramel/toffee-like maltiness.
The taste took those flavors and added a nice creamy coffee-like substance lightly in the background.
On the palate, this sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. It leaves a decent creamy aftertaste and finish.
Overall, good brown ale I’d have again.

Pours a cloudy gold with a thin white head. No real aroma to speak of. The taste is bland. It’s almost like flat soda. The body is light and the texture tickles the tongue.
I had this on tap during Ohio Brew Week. So maybe I got a bad batch.

Can - nice dark tea brown with a generous head. Full bodied malty coffee aroma and a bready biscuit taste. I normally go for the hoppy beers but I sure like this one.
