Clear nutty color with a fine off white head. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. A bit oily texture. Bready, pine, fruity and hoppy flavor. A quite nice and tasty ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Taproom, Coastal Extreme Brewing Company, Newport, RI
Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, nuts, caramel, malt dust and hint of chocolate. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, nutty and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. It’s more like a brown ale but still very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the taproom. Almost clear in the glass, dark amber in color and with a small, dense, beige head. Nutty, earthy, roasted aroma with a nice fruityness and a piney touch. Coffee hints. The flavor has a nice bitterness, it’s dry and medium to full bodied and a nice carbonation level. Roasted malts, bread, nuts and coffee hints. All lasting for a good while. Pretty wonderful this one, would go well with burger, cheese, pizza and lots of other good food. 150607

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber body under a one finger frothy beige head that had decent retention. The nose is fairly dry with some earthy malt and some minimal hopping. There’s a bit of caramel in there, but it’s not central to the aroma. The flavor is a little overly grainy with toasted and dry husky grain. Just the lightest bitterness on the finish It’s a bit rough in texture, but at least it’s not overly sweet. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Decent effort at the style.
