3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a really dark brown colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is of toast, a little nutty, with a slight vanilla-like scent. Taste is dry and malty sweet with a slight bitterness closer to the finish. Medium body, softer carbonation, and slightly creamy on the palate. Overall a really good brown ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
10 ounce sample on cask at the brewpub. The aroma has a really nice nuttiness, as well as some good toasted malt character. Lightly sweet, and nicely aromatic. Transparent mahogany body with a medium, bubbly light tan head. Good lacing. Starts with a flavorful toastiness, before a little light coffee character comes in the middle. Finishes with light astringency. Very easy-drinking.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pour is deep brown with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Roast, cocoa, graham crackers, bread, lightly earthy, vanilla, and coffee in the aroma. Taste is roasty, bready, biscuity, grassy, graham cracker, and slightly herbal with a lightly roasted bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a nice mahogany color, clear but dark with an off white head. The aroma has great notes of strong toffee, cocoa and toast. Kind of like a Heath bar without all the sweetness. The flavor is more toffee, toast, mild red berries, and a hint of mineral tartness and toastiness in the finish. Dry. A great session beer.

Classic looking brown. See through. Nice off white head. Aroma is brown sugars and caramel malts. Taste is slightly roasted, caramel, no hops, very good for a low ABV beer! Tastefull!

Aroma is a bit light with roastiness, some peanuts, hints of coffee and licorice. Flavour has coffee and licorice with a dry, nutty finish. Smooth and a bit watery palate. Your typical Brown Ale.

On tap, bartender said this was made with no hops, but Rosemary instead...? I definitely taste and smell Rosemary, color is dark for a brown. Pretty cool being on haight street though! Interesting...
