3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of tootsie rolls and carmel. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, light carmel and a hint of earthiness with a smooth cocoa finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brown with tan head poured from bottle. Big toasty flavor but no burnt taste to me. A bit nutty, cashews. A good brown with enough hops to keep it from being too sweet. Light body for such big flavor.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from T’s Liquors. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Slight nutty note on the nose. A bit nuttier on the tongue but not that much nuttier. Finishes clean. Eh!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
About an average brown ale. From a bottle into a tulip glass. The aroma seemed promising at first, then it faded. Flavor was similar; for a moment it seemed like it was going to be flavorful, but it faded quickly and ended a little thin. Not bad, but it could be better. This is my second from this brewery; the pale ale was better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Btl pours dark brown clear. Thick creamy tan head that hangs around. Smells of malty cereal,roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Tastes of sweet caramel and toffee, malty and nutty. Medium body with creamy texture. Soft carbonation with a slightly metallic, earthy finish. Very slight hop bitterness. Good session brown fantastic flavors, nice balance, solid beer. This is the 2nd beer I’ve had from mother road. Both have been outstanding.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The previous rater to me must have an axe to grind with this brewery. Brown color with a tan head. Roasted nuts, caramel malts, bready flavors. Not too bad.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This beer is NO Brown ale at all. The taste is so gross its hard to even want to take another sip. The carbonation is too overwhelming. If you like this beer than you haven’t had a REAL Brown ale.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle pours with a sort of infected look to it with billowing tan head over a dark amber body.
The aroma is light and a little nutty as a well as roasty and a tad earthy with malts.
The taste seems coffee like at first and then pulls up some roasted malts, mineral notes and then leaving some nuttiness into the finish. The mouth feel is thin and prickly with carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A sweeter nut brown ale. Pours excitedly to a rich brown in color. The flavors are quite good; this one hits all the notes, but I think it lacks some character; there's no defining point to hang your hat on and say this is spectacular. That said, it's good!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smpled at the Tucson Beer Fest. Opaque brown with a small beige head. Sweet and rich malts. Only a hint of bittering hs. This has some interesting earthiness. A nice brown.
