4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- has a thick malty aroma
Appearance- Danny near black with a small light brown head.
Taste- more like a porter, really malty and flavorful
Palate- heavy bodied brew with a slick feel has light carbonation.
Overall- I really like this. It’s more of a porter than a brown ale. So what it’s awesome.

Dark brown pour with reddish hue and large beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and slightly nutty. Taste of caramel malts, chocolate, almonds, molasses and faint hops on the finish. Full bodied, medium carbonation, nicely balanced, delicious brown ale!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can, Pretty respectable Brown Ale, practically an Imperial Brown for the ABV, but drinks pretty clean and mellow. Smooth, sweet malt finish. Respectable offering.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
60 cl bottle, 9.5%, 5.90€. Dark reddish brown color, clear, thick rocky brownish head, lots of lacing. Hoppys and caramel nose. Aroma is burnt malts, nutty, chocolate powder and a good amount of bittering hops. Taste is bitter, body is medium, dusty texture. The 9.5 ABV is well hidden. Dry finish, bitter. Excellent dark strong ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle -
Aroma - roasted malts, roasted almonds and molasses
Appearance - deep chocolate brown body, semi-transparent, 2-finger beige head, big bubbles, light retention/lacing
Flavor - roasted malts right up front, dark chocolate, baker’s chocolate bitterness, with a medium sweetness to bind it all together
Overall - this is a BAINO if there ever is one, because it has much more character and complexity than a plain brown ale. Flavorful and it hides the alcohol pretty well. I’d buy again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Deep mahogany with a light beige head. Aroma is coffee, smoke, wet soil and brown sugar. Slightly metallic note in the aroma. Flavor is mostly caramel, toffee, cinnamon and toast. Finishes clean with the high alcohol very well hidden. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a dark nutty brown with a ruby hue. Aroma of cocoa and Roasty malt. Taste follows aroma. Medium bitter and surprisingly boozy. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long, boozy finish. Pretty good. Not what I was expecting but definitely interesting.

Draft at Drafting Room Exton. Pours hazy dark brown with tan head. Nose is earthy vienna malts, brown sugar, toffee. Tastes fairly dense on the palate, with earthy brown malty notes, earthy brown sugar, toffee, and backup hops. Not sweet, and solidly complex.
