4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of chocolate and roasted coffee. Pours a muddy brown with an average head. Taste is wonderful. Dark chocolate, roasty malt and coffee attack your buddies of taste. The best tasting brown I’ve had in a while. Palate is medium bodied. Overall, like I said, this thing tastes so good. It is a little dryer than I remember, not as sweet. Must try.

This one poured a hazy brown color with a beige head. Aroam was of brown sugar, toast, and light smoke. Flavor was smoke, brown malt and toast. Better than most examples of the style.

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
