3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 By damn, another Cincy brewer! Where do these people come from? All the sudden, Cincy has a plethora of independently owned breweries, and to be honest, all of them are mediocre at best. My first try from Madtree is not bad, does have some nice malt flavors going on--bit thin though. It lacks something, maybe body. Good luck Madtree...it’s becoming a crowded, local market.

Can. Almost stout like in the aroma. Coffee, roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and toast?. Complex for sure. Palate is nice and chewy. Taste is a little dry, expecting sweeter based on smell, but this is a damn good beer. Their best so far.

Daft sample at brew house. Pairs lighter brown, color of soda almost. Nose of coffee and roasted malt. Taste nice coffee roasted malt and balancing bitterness from hop. Taste much more like a porter than a standard brown to me.

Draft to taster at MadTree. Looks solid; a fairly transparent brown with foamy off-white head. Smells malty and nutty. Tastes like it smells, only better, with some chocolate too and a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A solid brown ale.

Draft. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted dark chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Complex brown that exceeded my expectations.

On tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2013. Clear dark brown color. Minimal khaki head. Little loose lace. Surprisingly hoppy. Little earthy hop, some herbal. Toasty malt. Little chocolate malt. Predominantly bitter taste. Medium body, light crisp carbonation, dry texture. More smooth. Like it. Solid, though unusually hoppy brew
