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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma is roasty malts with hints of chocolate, fruit and yeast. Appearance is very dark brown--virtually opaque with dark amber at edges of the glass. Nice, fluffy finger-width beige head with good retention and nice lacing. Taste is mainly mild sweet with yeast qualities and roastiness with pleasant mild bitter finish. Palate is light bodied with creamy smooth texture, minimal carbonation. Overall, a rich beer without feeling too thick or filling.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is chocolate and coffee and roasted malt....Appearance is reddish black. Nice foamy head, lingers well, and pretty nice lacing....Taste is pretty good, I can see where theyíre going with this. The dominating flavor is the roasted malt, and then coffee maybe...Mouthfeel is semi-dry and it also has some creaminess. Roasted malt is still staning out.....Overall, itís a good ale. Not as good as what I was expecting, but one, I would buy again!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour into Goblet. Small short-lived head leaving little lacing. Color is deep brown but fairly translucent. Aroma is caramel and chocolate with slight hint of the hoppy flavor to come. Taste is slightly bitter (those hops you smell going in) and slightly salty. For a brown beer it feels pretty light and has good/average carbonation which makes it go easily over the tongue. Not the best Motherís has to offer but an enjoyable brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz pour from draft into a shaker pint. Just below room temp. Color is brown, bordering on black. Little head, but that might have just been the pour. Nice lacing. Nose is wood and bread. Taste is very bready and malty. A bit sweet. A lot like a typical brown ale. Would be pretty good with a hearty stew or meat and potatoes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, dark, reddish brown-black, with good-sized head. Fresh aroma, with some floral notes, some hops, maybe a bit of soap. Flavor contains all of these, with some malt, coffee, chocolate. Almost verging over into porter or stout territory, this one.
