2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 O bottle pour. Pours a reddish brown color with no lace or head. Nutty, malty aroma. Flavor shadows the aroma. This beer for me was just alright. Nothing special stood out. Semi empty finish to it. I wouldn’t call this bad, but maybe expected a bit more. Interesting style though. A little different.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear mahogany with a thick, though not persistent, light tan head. Dark malt aroma has woody, caramel, and subtle hoppy notes. Flavor is not strong, but pleases with malty, nutty, and woody tones plus a snip of caramel. Texture seems a bit thin and lacks fizz. Has this gone downhill since winning that there now Gold Medal? Nevertheless, give it a fair shake.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated on 8-07-2014 at Don Hall’s Factory (Fort Wayne, IN) This bottled beer has a transparent brown body, no visible carbonation observed and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malty, nutty and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. This beer is quaffable and does not have a lot of character to it. It is what it is.

Appearance: opaque dark brown color with small brownish colored head slight lacing on glass
Taste: caramel key notes, earthy

Overall: this is a brown ale with a punch of flavor ! It has a lot of timing on the tongue- it is very different than any brown ale I have tried

"nice and malty up front, with peet and caramel malt, good body, although the aroma is lacking. the beer makes up for it with it’s solid malt backbone and hoppy finish. solid, with a small alcohol kick"
