3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red-brown in color with an off-white head. Roasty malt aroma. Taste is roast malt up front, fading to a belgian yeast fruit-spice finish...interesting.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft @ brewery ABQ. Pours with very little head but it’s poured in entirely the wrong glass, a small pils glass. Dark ,semi-opaque brown. Very husky aroma is unrefined. And I kinda like huskiness. The palate is oily and even tacky. The oversparged dark malt husk flavors are overpowering. A little syrupy malt extract is immature. Not marble at their best.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, no head. The aroma is lightly toffeeish and some bubblegummy notes, tastes sweet with more sugars and gummy phenols. Ok but not my favourite type of beer. Probably not enough toasty brown ale notes for me

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Santa Fe taproom. Deep brown body. Tan, fizzy head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of roast, milk chocolate, dark fruit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Tastes of roasted malts with notes of licorice and overripe fruits. Good balance between the roast and fruit flavors and the lingering bitterness. On par with Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale. The Belgian yeast adds some nice fruity esters. I had lots of Marble’s beers on a recent trip to New Mexcio and was impressed with this brewery. Solid.
