3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark amber brown pour. Solid beige head with good retention. Decent lace. Aroma was a letdown. A little roast and a lot of grain. Taste makes up for it a bit. Nutty and roasty with little toffee hits. Had to really look for it, though. Medium bodied and easy drinking. Overall not too shabby.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good brown ale that reportedly has a blend of styles. Malty aromas that ranged from roasty to dark and nutty. Dark copper color with a foamy head. Smooth and full but also light feeling. Decent carbonation. Flavors leaned on the malty side with earthy and grainy layers. Roasted character complimented the slight bitterness. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle] Brown in color with a fairly stout cap of tan head. Cocoa powder, brown sugar and toasted grains in the nose. Bready taste includes notes of chocolate, molasses, floral hops, toffee and rye. Better than expected body, with a nice creaminess to it. One of their better beers for sure. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle. Aroma is dominated by toasty, bready, brown malt, with faint suggestions of caramel, milk chocolate, herbal hop and a touch of fruitiness from the yeast. Clear deep brown in color with a lasting, foamy, off-white head and copious amounts of lacing to match. Flavor profile is malty and toasty to start, seeing a touch of sweetness enter the picture and then surprisingly bitter (for the style), with a good bit of herbal, tea-like hop flavor and finishing dry and roasty, with faint coffee tinges late. Plenty of carbonation on the palate, with a slight mineral feel and a medium body. I get what they were going for here but it pretty much ends up being just another Brown.

Amber pour with an off-white head. The aroma has some toffee and nut notes. The flavor is more of the same with the toffee, caramel and nut notes really melding together nicely. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
