3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big head Todd on dark brown beer. Aroma is more hops than malt. Malty brown ale with nice hops but unfortunately the Maine chemical edge to the flavour. The most unique "house" aspect I have found in a beer. Comes across as cool but….

From a bottle. Pours medium/dark brown with a frothy tan head. Tastes like coffee and barley, nutty, smooth. Creamy bitterness. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like creaminess, bitterness, and coffee.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours pretty much black with a small dark mocha head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, tiny fruity and slightly herbal with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, grapefruit juice, mango, peaches, dark roast coffee, liquorice, moist soil and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, malty, tiny fruity and herbal. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny dry, astringent and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee and grapefruit. Solid BIPA. Nothing extreme.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
black with thin cream head, consistent. Brownie and herb nose, balanced with some cake delicacy. Bit of playdoh marriage of stout and hops, otherwise excellent, balanced brownie cake with piney, resinous end, stings tongue. Rich body. Dense and delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown body, medium off-white head, spotty lacing. Pine, citrus, roast, a little earth and chocolate. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, moderate carbonation, slight awkward finish as the malt and hops try to work things out with each other.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio for sharing)... Poured black with a thin, khaki head. Some good retention. Aroma of awesomely dank, earthy, pine-like hops. Hop notes similar in the flavor with a good balance of roast and malt sweetness. Bright citrus, cocoa, roast, mild tobacco note too.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.5l bottle from Good Beers NYC. There is no reference to this being a #2,but it’s bottled 11.06.2013 so it’s as fresh as a mildly put fresh.. Pours a lovely looking deep dark brown body with a big really lacing and lasting light brown top. Smells amazing, lots of fresh green hops, a good amount of coffee, roasted malts and just plain old delicious. There is even a little bit of salty peanuts and ice cream in this. Could nose this for hours. Taking a sip i get a really spot on comfortable carbonation level with a smooth oily mouthfeel. Deliciously blended flavors with a good amount of coffee and bitter almost stingy fresh piney hops. Really balanced (as all the beers I’ve had from Maine has been) and it has a dry chocolate paper thing that I’m really enjoying right now. Roasted almost a little bit burned ashy finish, a little bit of minerals and soft dry mouthing in the aftertaste. Really tasty! 20.06.2013

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of big piney hops and lots of strong chocolate malt and a hint of earthy roast. Taste is even more toward the pine and chocolate, less roast, mild bitterness. Right along the style, solid beer.
