3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can shared by DrSilverworm Dec. 2012. Pours a clear cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma has a nice hop character, piney, earthy with some herbal notes and moderate roasted malt, chocolate and thin black coffee. The flavor makes for an interesting brown ale (I don’t get to say that too often) with a great mix of hops and malt. Piney, earthy and herbal hops with roasted malt, chocolate and light coffee. I love the can as well.
