2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft-Nodding Head Center City Philadelphia. Dark Brown ale, came highly recommended but not a big fan. It does have a slight chocolate/earthy flavor but overall nothing overwhelming and not enjoyable to me when it was serviced lukewarm. Its still better than Monkey Knife fight...

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft at Nodding Head. Pours a deeper mahoggany. Nose is terrible. Toasted malts, super estery with plastic. Subtle malts and distant hops. On tasting, more plastic and sloppy notes. Really not a good brown ale. Minimal structure to the malt, lacks balance and the toastiness. Some faint hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shaker cask pour at the brewpub in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The pour is deeply hazed brown, with not too much of a khaki head. The aroma is sweet malt, malted chocolate, and touch of bitter sweetness. The taste is real chocolate, semi sweet chocolate chips, along with caramel malt and a fruity yeastiness. The palate is light to medium bodied, silky cask mouth feel, naturally low carbonation, and a sweet finish. Nice enough.
