2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from 12 ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Medium dark brown/amber hue, small tan head,nice sweet nutty/malt aroma but flavor is marred by a chemical taste. This is "organic"? If so, gimme some artificial ingredients.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of malts and nuts. Tastes very watered down compared to Peak’s other offerings. Tastes like roasted malts and nuts, not a whole lot of other flavors present which is also unlike their other beers. Not my favorite. Try their Pale Ale, IPA, Summer Session or Coffee/Espresso beers and take a pass on this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz brown bottle. Pours a nice red brown colour, clear. Small and thin beige cap, lace rings. Nose has caramel and chocolate malts. Taste has light caramel, dark chocolate. Dry finish with a bit of nutty malt and dark chocolate, and a some roasty iron like mineral notes in the aftertaste. Light bodied with average carbonation. Overall a nice brown ale, simple and drinkable. Maybe it’s cause the fall weather has hit me, I dunno, but really enjoying this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Boring brown with a reddish body, soapy beige head and a nose of light caramel and hops. Medium bodied and mildly toasted cara malts, a hint of citrus and fruity hops. Bland middle with a moderate hop and bad taste left behind.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Doesn’t seem like a brown ale to me it’s more like an Alt or a red IPA. Sweet malty caramel aroma. Sweet hoppy bready flavor. English personality. Doughy finish.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber with an off white head. Looks great. Aroma is minimal, some molasses and fruitiness. Flavor is a bit light to start, some nuttiness that is quickly taken by some linger piney hop bitterness. The bitterness is not strong but it does linger. Overall a good beer and one of my favorite styles.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Roasted nuts and caramel. Clear light brown, lacy head. Pretty sweet, kind of grainy, strange blood and metal aftertaste. Light, soft, and chewy. Not the best brown ale around.
