3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours brown with a good sized beige soapy head. The aroma has toasty malt, bread, mild spice and dry toffee. It has a medium crisp body with a lot of carbonation, but not intrusively so. The taste starts with dry toasty malt, some metallic notes, minerals and mild hops. The finish has more earthy hops and more mineral heavy. Very drinkable, but missing a lot of what I dig in a brown ale.

Amber brown. Dark but near clear. Malty nuttiness. Toffee. Dry. Kinda unique for a brown....a bit hoppier than most browns.

Received in trade from gregwilsonstl, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a dark copper almost brown color with a huge frothy beige head that persists forever. Big caramel and toasted malt with a hint of chocolate and a touch of earthy hop to counter. The flavor adds some dark dried fruits as well. Pretty good brown ale.

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!
