3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a darker than average brown. Had a nice frothy beige head that fell to a ring on the top center of the beer and stayed the duration.
Smell is just slightly roasty, not too much coming through here. Taste is nice. Decent medium bodied mouthfeel with a good amount of cocoa coming through as well. A nice solid brown ale. A little bigger tasting than your typical brown.

Bottle pours light brown and fairly clear with a pretty nice offwhite creamy head. Aromas of nuts, caramel, and a touch of chocolate. Flavor starts out with sweet caramel and nuts. A touch of chocolate and some roasted flavor touches your tongue before slight grassy hops finish this one off. Good medium body with slight carbonation. Very drinkable..

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (500ml). Very deep clear ruby with an average frothy tan head. Excellent, if light aroma of nutmeats, roast caramel malt, chocolate toffee and cranberry. The taste is oddly lactic, but the nutty malt and tart fruit work with solid herbal hops to yield a balanced finish - and I get more alcohol in this than 4.5%! Slightly watery body, almost slippery mouthfeel, lightly acidic, with very soft carbonation - very easy to drink, though.
