4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This deserves a better rating than it has. Not traditional in that it has a lot more hops than usual, but it only adds to the appeal. Tried at the brewery in 2014.

Taster on tap at the brewery. Clear dark red color. Thin khaki head, leaves good thicker lace. Great chocolate, nutty aroma up front. Medium-plus body, big and full for the ABV. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice flavor again, like hazelnut or marzipan or something. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Tasty brown ale!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of caramel, nuts, chocolate and light floral presence. Appearance is amber/brown with sticky tan head. Flavor matches the nose, except that the flavor seems to quickly move to the finish, which is dry. Palate is medium, tacky and very soft. Could have used a little more endurance in the flavor.

Growler from BBC: Pours syrupy brown with a nice head. Aroma is sour and leather as is the taste. Not very good at all..
