3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours a cloudy dark brown with a good one inch foamy lumpy tan head. Foamy lacing is left around the sides of my nonic. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell has the toasted oats and walnut up front with an ever so faint sense of hops in the background. The taste has the previously stated elements and combines some nice caramel tones. The palate is about a medium, slightly dry and a bit watery, but a decent watery. Overall, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning when I saw the price, but am glad I bought it to try a style I’m used to and like from a company I’ve never had any of their stuff. I’d probably have this again, but definitely as a novelty because of the price.

Enormous bladder burster can. Nice caramel, slightly mocha aroma. Smooth and easy drinking brown, with a bit of a hop bite up front. Decent.

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear brown with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is nutty, cookie and light chocolate malt, dates and figs with earthy hops. Flavor is sweet malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, dark fruits and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Via trade with Spence3208. The aroma is a pleasant mix of caramel, and nuts, little bit of cocoa. The appearance is translucent deep amber, slightly off-white head. The flavor is caramel, bready, nutty, sweet. The finish is sweet, and light hop bittering, mainly pine needles. Medium in body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty nice.

Thanks Spence3208. Red-brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and a little nutty. Taste is roasted malt, nutty. It has a nice flavorful aftertaste. Great lacing. Got to love a 24 ounce can of tasty beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on tap at Murphy’s in Manchester, for $4.50. Basically, the flavor profile is what I would describe as stale peanut brittle mixed with edamame and DME in a blender. Rusty light hazy brown pour. Alright. Nutty, which is often the case with browns. Too artificial. Has these strange hose manure aromas which weren’t my favorite.

24oz can: This one pours a clear, dark amber color. There was a very small off white head that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. The nose is nice. there hints of chocolate brown sugar and roasted malts. The taste is good. A hint of the roastiness, biscuit, as well as a faint nuttiness. A bit of caramel malts. A faint bit of piney hops keeps this pretty evenly balanced. Just a ahir lighter than medium bodied. A decent enough beer!
