3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, shared. Mostly clear dark ruby red color. Little off-white head. Bit of lace. Dark fruity nose. Smooth, lighter, softer carbonation. More dry texture. Some maple syrup. Light chocolate. Little bitter taste. Nice nose and flavor to this. Something about it is lacking for me, but it’s a decent brown ale

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle, poured a gorgeous brown with a creamy tan head (tulip glass) slightly less appealing dark copper in a pint glass, same head, both with great lacing. Smell was lightly sweet and malty. Delicious crisp forefront with a solid roast finish. Clean and easy drinking. Could use a little more body, but still a great early autumn brown ale!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Brown, large frothy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet malty aroma, a little nutty, soft chocolate, cocoa, and salted caramel.   Nutty like breadiness up front, semi-sweet, soft cocoa and a bit of musty chocolate bring up the backside.   Hop aspect is minor.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Seems pretty smooth.   Very clean, lingering nuttiness/breadiness, darker malts, some musty chocolate, with little in the way of hops.   Enjoyed it more than I thought I would!

22 oz Bottle. Pours a dark brown with light tan head. Aroma of molasses and malts. Flavor is a bit sweeter than I normally like, dominated by roasted malts and brown sugar. Fairly smooth, decent, but not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewery, summer 2011: Sweet and chewy with some sappy caramel and brown sugar. Pleasant notes of oak, nuts and chocolate. Mild bitterness. Overall, I thought it was a wholesome and tasty brown; just a bit too sweet for me.
