Tap at Olde Hickory- slightly below standard brown ale- pours a woody amber with a thin head. Aroma is nutty, and light chocolate with some solvent and chemical thing going on. Flavor is earthy, nutty, biscuit, toffee, slight cleanser and a rough prickly finish- eh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Union Jack’s. Pours a brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma is lactic and kind of hoppy with some chocolate notes. The palate is medium, just about what I’d expect from the style. Plenty of weird, lactic sourness throws off the flavors of nuts, chocolate, and earth. The flavor is light for a brown. This is not so great.

Draft sampler at the brewery. Another easy drinking beer that I could drink all night. Had a slight sweet flavor to it.
