i loved this beer. It was extremly smooth,with a deep flavor. There was virtually no after-taste. I enjoyed the experience of drinking this beer. When i had finished drinking it, i wanted another, but alas that was on the other side of the Grapevine.

Tap: Never had hemp so Iím not sure what it tastes like, but I was having trouble guessing the style of this. The color is a rich brown. Just slightly darker than the Rogue Hazelnut Brown ale next to it. Aroma was malt dominated with caramel, light chocolate. I really donít know what they were trying here, but it didnít work.

Draught. Clear dark brown color with off white head. Overall lacking in flavor and aroma. There is a touch of hay and caramel malt in the aroma. Flavor is similar wih some nuttiness and an earthy character.

On tap. Reddish brown, transparant color with a nice beige head. Some caramelized malty aromas with a light, grassy hops touch. Mouthfeel is syrupy, but not in a creamy or full kind of way. Flavor of toast and cherry jelly.

Very clear deep amber color with a light a light tan head. A pleasant toasty malt aroma. Nice toasty malt flavor that lingers. This beer is a pleasant suprise. Light to medium mouthfeel. A must try.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours a dark brown color. Aroma is somewhat malty with a bit of chocolate. A hint of hops as well. Flavor is slightly malty with some chocolate notes. Slightly roasted. A little bit of spice. Not bad, but lacking a little something. Reminds me a little of a brown ale.
