3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not surprisingly, brown in color with a khaki head. Starts off with a mild toast on the aroma, maybe a bit of roast as well. Plenty of sweet toffee and a mild caramel note. The flavor has a subtle hoppiness which is nice and works well with the toasted and caramel flavors of the beer. Mildly roasty with a hint of coffee and chocolate.

Medium brown with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma is malty, toasted, light roasted, dark sugar. Medium, creamy body. Flavor has a nice toasted, lightly roasted malt profile. Light dark sugar and molasses. Very solid brown ale.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark brown and clear with a moderate head, this has relatively little aroma. I’m actually detecting a slight skunkiness to the beer that makes it off-putting.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is nice and roasted with chocolate, coffee, burnt malt, earth, and grassy hops. The appearance brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma but astringent. The palate is thin. Overall this is just average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This clear brown ale had a foamy head that almost got out of control, huge and growing, then slowly collapsed in chunks. The aroma was sweet, toffee-ish with a splash of almond extract, and had a very light earthiness. The flavor was much the same with a soft addition of chocolate. Very smooth and drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Trader Joe’s in Eastlake: Created a monstrous sizing of foaming head where as the liquid was a medium leather brown color. In the nose, a delicate touch of toasted toffee like malts hangs in the balance with a background of raw almonds. The flavor is boring and not a whole lot of action going on other than a smooth and subtle taste of caramel malts and perhaps a notice of pistachio or cashew nuts in the aftertaste. Very simple and easily quaffable which is cool since a bomber bottle only cost $2.

Pours a nice dark but transparent brown with a medium tan head. Nose is mostly sweet malt, maybe a little chocolate. Taste is good and balanced, nice roasty malt and chocolate but there is bittering to it. This probably one of my favorites of this style, especially for the price.
