2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Perfect pour. Pours dark brown with an inch of khaki foam. A bit of malt on the nose. There’s a little bit of nuttiness but it’s obliterated by all the hop bitterness. Finish lingers a bit. I see what there doing here but I prefer my brown ales to be brewed closer to style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear soaplike light white and brownish head. Aroma: Hops, chocolate, coffee. Licorice. Roasted malt, grain. dominating roasted bitterness. Refreshing, light good taste. The bitterness drowns much of the light sweetness and the complex taste unless it is enjoyed slowly with pauses. Medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown coloured with a beige head. Roasted aroma with notes of oat, coffee and chocolate . Light roasted flavour of coffee, chocolate and hops with notes of oat and flowery notes. Dry roasted finish. Nicely hopped, a but untraditional for a brown ale but hope that this is the revolution ^^

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours brown/ruby with a big off white head. Big hop aroma but can immediately tell the bottle is out of date. Really a shame because the malt characteristics are outstanding. Lots of caramel, some vanilla and smoke. Mouthfeel is slightly thin. Will definitely buy this again to rate a fresh bottle.
