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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sampler poured a medium brown with off white head. Nice nut brown aroma with medium dark malts and a hop presence. Flavor was quite good nice nutty flavor with a hop crispness. Overall this one was one of the better ones.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap into a shot glass. Appearance is a dark, translucent brown with a beige head. Aroma is malts and coffee. Taste follows suit. Coffee comes throughout magnificently. This is my favorite of the sampler I got while at the brewery. I would say this is their best by a good bit.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a dark nut brown color with orange highlights and a large foamy beige head that left very good lacing. The aroma was semi sweet and nutty with hints of wood, cherry, cola and fruity hops. The flavor was tangy and semi sweet with notes of honey, toffee, wood, caramel and fruity hops. Long finish. Medium body. This beer has gotten much better from when I first rated it.
