3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is primarily darkish milk chocolate. Med+ body. Creamy. Flavor is bitter chocolate, some sludgy burnt malt, and hints of treacle and coffee. Definitely on the dry side of life. Has none of that odd roast malt aspect often found in browns. This beer is something of it’s own. Nice stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice dark brown pour from the can with a beige head. I get some sweet roasted nuts, nice rich coffee, roasted malt, dark toasted bread, and some milk chocolate in the nose. The flavor is coffee, roast, some nuts, and just enough bitterness to finish the beer nicely. Enjoyable brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Small off-white rim, over black beer. Roasted, cigarette ashes, smells dry. Dry, but still quite some sweet; nutty, bit ashy, charred wood & cypress cones. Feels rather well-carbonated; slick, finishes rather empty. Bit run-of the mill, no faults.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can pours a rutty red mahogany with light tan head. The aroma offers up bold rich malt roastiness, some nuttiness and a bit of chocolaty earthiness around the edges. The taste is similar with rich malt roastiness rimmed with coffee and some nuttiness. It gets fairly dark roasty into the finish almost taking on a burnt malt note. Big bold flavor here. A robust brown ale maybe?
