3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle received in a trade. Thanks! Pours a darker brown on the verge of ruby with a beige head of foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma is roasty and nutty. Some toffee peeking through. The taste is much sweeter than the aroma indicated. The roast comes through in the finish a little bit, but the sweetness is the predominant characteristic here.

Tap at brewpub which is in the resort I’m staying at, somewhat convenient after drinking this much. Pours brown with beige head and a nose that’s nutty and malty. Tastes of caramel, malt, nuts, earth, raisins, and smoke. Pretty nice tasting albeit straightforward brown ale

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A tasty nut brown. Balanced towards the caramel malts, but not quite imitating brown malt...obvious caramel. I am missing the nuttiness on this one, something a little more biscuit malt might cure. Hops ate good as is the hop balance. Seems to retain head nicely. A good beer.
