3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from cardinal liquors, Chicago. Clear brown body with medium off-white/beige head. Aroma is lots of nuts, roasted malt and some pine hops. Caramel flavor with nuttiness, roasted malt and some fruitiness. I have to agree with Holdenn that this was a brown ale, very awesome.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 12 oz bottle thanks to xnoxhatex for bringing this. Pours a clear brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, nutty, with earthy/piney hops around the edges. Body is a little thin. Caramel with roasted/chocolate notes in the flavor. Very nutty and slightly fruity with piney and floral hops. I thought this was a brown ale (in fact that’s what the bottle says), but pretty tasty what ever it is.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear brown, with a thin slowly developing head. Roasted malt aroma, with chocolate and caramel being most prominent. Heavier than expected, with a chemical, flavor that reminds me of the aroma of bug spray. Yes, it is off somehow.
