2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This place seems to have a habit of making beers that look like theyíre going to be delicious and then fail to delivers. Has a faint maltiness on the nose. Getting a very slightly roasted coffee note on the tongue. The problem with this beer lies in the palate. Itís incredibly watery and has no linger to it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old rate. Sampled at the brewpub in Philly. Pours a deep brown with a long lasting cream head. Aroma is roasty/nutty malts little bitterness. Taste is much the same. Not too watery as many brown ales seem to be. Extremely drinkable and smooth but not anything more than you would expect for the style..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very solid brown ale. The pour is dark brown like thatís a surprise with a thin head. The aroma has some malt and bread along with caramel and a touch of chocolate. The flavor has the same elements with a nice roastiness to balance everything. Nice long lasting after taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear dark brown with a small wispy light brown head. More spicy on the nose than your average Brown Ale with some hints of husky chocolate malt. Nice nutty notes, almost hazelnut like. The flavor is fairly dry, a little husky, with some light bitterness on the back end. Reminds me a little of Rogue Hazelnut Nectar. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Flavorful, flirting with some light Porter qualities. One of the better offerings the day I was there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Cask at Nodding Head. Pours a dark dark brown body with creamy, off-white head that dissipates into nice lasting lacing. Aroma is basic roasty notes with some bread, malt and nuts. Mouthfeel is very smooth - the flavor is restricted but could be a decent session beer with some flavor.

On tap at The Nodding Head. Pours a deep garnot tinged chocolate and cola brown with a thin to medium sized dark beige head. Minerally roast, nutty, a bit of coffee with a nice sesame note. Roasty and lightly sweet, a bit of cocoa. Very slow finish with hints of smoke over long subtle roast. Nice.
