4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Caramel chocolate coffee aroma and dark brown color. Tastes the same way it sniffs. Reminds me why New Holland is one of my favorite breweries.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was OK but far from exceptional. The aroma was faint with roasted notes. Dark brown color that appeared thin. The palate was light and a little watery. Nothing special. Roasted and nutty flavors but in a mild way. The beer seemed to fit the style markers but didn’t make an effort to exceed them.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is of caramel and light chocolately malt. Bigger end of the medium body spectrum with robust carbonation. Lots of roasty flavor, some caramel and toffee. Lingering roasty, medium bitter finish. Nice brown, sturdy not weak and watery.

Define roasted malts with hints of raisins, aroma is pleasant mostly nuts and some earth, really like the way it feels smooth with sweet notes and finishes very nice overall good brew, occasional six pack during these long winter months would be a treat

Bottle- Pours a dark brown with a thick off white head that last a while. To me its closer to a porter or maybe a very robust brown ale. Very flavorful nice dark roasts and malty. Good drink, if it is more like a Porter even though brown ales and porters overlap in ingredients.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Pours deep brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is malty, with caramel, raisin, and rye. Flavors are nutty with toffee, sweet malts and liquid smoke. Very slight bitterness for a relatively dry finish. Very light carbonation with a medium body. Overall an interesting brown ale, but not one I will likely purchase again.

Bready chocolate aromas, pours a rich brown with a tan head and nice lacing. Nice mouthfeel, earthy, raisin, spice a touch of the dry roast in the finish.
