2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside. Pours a brown, creamy head atop a black body. Nose of nothing. Very highly carbonated and slightly sour. Not terribly complex and somewhat disappointing for this brewery.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is like toasted what bread with a touch of coffee. The appearance is brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Cola colour with a large thick tan foam blanket. Looks like a glas of cola and is levely and well carbonated. Aromas of roasted coffee beans and chocolate dominate with burnt toffee and nalt flavours folowing. Smooth finish and light in the mouth.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy warm brown with a decent, if not persistent, pale tan head. Aroma is malty and just slightly nutty, not strong but still inviting. Flavor is malty with nutty and hoppy hints - not wonderful, but enjoyable nevertheless. Texture is smooth and fizzy, leaving a bit of a tingle behind, along with a hint of hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchase from Liquor Barn in Santa Rosa I believe. Poured a reddish tinted dark brown color with a huge light brown head. Aroma was much better than expected. Cocoa, earth, nuts, caramel and must. Some fruit. Very similar to a brown ale in the aroma. Flavor was pretty full, with bread, toffee, nuts, caramel and fruit. Some light cocoa presence. Slight hopping in the finish. Actually was very tasty.
