3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Brown pour with a tight off-white head. The nose has a touch of toasted malt but also a fairly pronounced fruity/estery quality. A bit sweet with an almost candied nut flavour on the back. Oddly bubble gummy and even a touch of soapiness comes out. It’s not really bad, but it’s a fairly atypical brown ale.

Keg, Blind Tiger, Bleecker St, Greenwich Village, 20/02/14. Ruby ringed with white. Really attractive brittle coffee bean aroma with hints of pistachio and chocolate. Deep layered malt, mellow English brown ale flavour with Curly Wurly, milky mocha, almond and butter biscuit notes. Some blueberry in the blender. Really balanced, rounded and good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler brought back from the brewpub by Conor and Sarah- thanks again! Pours a semi-cloudy brown copper color with a small beige head that sticks. Aroma of toasted malts, earth, rust, dust, and a good amount of hazelnuts. Flavor of toasted malts, mixed nuts (hazelnut, pecan in particular), earth, and flat cola. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a nutty, toasty mouthfeel. Nice brown ale.

12oz can, from Perfect Pour. Very dark red color. Thin off-white / khaki head. Leaves decent rows of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft / crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Easy-drinking. Caramel malt, good nuttiness, bit of chocolate. Some earthy hop, light hint of pine hop. Moderate bitterness. Lighter sweet. Seeing some of the coffee. Very easy to drink. Great one to wash my late night sandwich down with.
