3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: Draft at Acme Oyster House in the New Orleans Airport.
It pours a very deep brown with a creamy light tan head. Good head retention and spotty lacing left behind. It had a very nutty nose with notes of light brown sugar and caramel. No hop notes to speak of. The flavor was much lighter than expected. Surprisingly I found this one to be salty with butter and nut notes. Not nearly as bold as I thought it would be. It’s smooth and a bit creamy on the palate with a slightly bitter finish. An okay quaff for airport fare but nothing to write home about.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Cooter Brown’s. Pours a dark brown to almost black with a large creamy beige head. This beer tastes much more like a Guiness than a brown ale. It has a mild coffee flavor but is very watery. A disappointing beer.

Dark brown with a small tan head. Malty nose. Coffee and chocolate taste with an odd chalkiness at the finish. An average brown ale, with nothing really outstanding about it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Chimes East Baton Rouge, LA. Traditional pint! Very dark brown with no head. Very cold. Nose is very malty and a bit chocolately. Taste is very malty and sweet with some chocolately notes. Nice roasty, burnt malts-a bit thin on the palate. Good beer for a style which is usually not one of my favorites.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Much darker than I expected and seemed to have a moderate to low carbonation level. Highly drinkable; think brown session beer. The head is huge and the lacing very prevalent. Has the look of a heavier brew with the low carbonation and huge tan head, but the feel of a session beer when going down. I mainly get a chocolate taste with a nutty (almost coffee) finish.

draft at Bulldog Pub, New Orleans.
pours copper/brown, beige head.
aroma and taste, dark malts, light roast with caramel.
Found it to be rather basic, with some hints of pilsener malts, some malts and the caramel in the finish. Faint touch of bready mouthfeel.
One dimensional but refreshing.
