12oz can pours a deep amber with some sticky, beige head. Nose is layered with cocoa powder, bread crust, nuts, toast, some light roast coffee, nougat. Flavor falls off a bit, mostly just malt and brown sugar and toast, bread, chewy grains. Finishes dry and a touch spicy. All over the place.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from the local Walgreens. Pours a fairly dark brown color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has a lot of caramel and vanilla notes, with a bit of toasting coming through. Taste is a bit sweet up front, but has a lot of toasting and roasting on the back end. Not a bad drink at all.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. can. Dark, clear brown, with a big, tan head and thick lacing. Coffee and earthy notes dominate the nose, with some bittersweet chocolate, anise, and light cinnamon. The flavor is sweet and roasty, with a light bitterness. Medium body, with a sticky, creamy mouthfeel. This is a solid brown ale, with good, light roasted character and a lighter, easy mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
4.5 A: Deep amber brown color. Two and a half fingers of frothy/creamy tan head. Retention is good and lots of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Big toastiness in this right from the start. Dry nuttiness with hints of caramel and ash. Light earthy hoppiness. Quite nice.
3.75 T: Like the nose, this is on the drier side. Lots of nuttiness and toastiness. Dry cacao notes with slight caramel.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess and super smooth.
3.75 D: Pretty good well rounded brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from can. Pours a ruby dark brown color with thick rocky khacki colored head. Great aroma for a brown, roasted and nutty. Also caramel and biscuit notes. Taste is moderate to heavily sweet with almost no detectable bitterness. Flavors of biscuits, caramel, toffee, nuts, coffee, earth. Hides the ABV well. Thick syrupy mouthfeel. Overall and excellent brown ale.

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.
