3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle. A clear medium brown body with a bone color head. Head had great retention and decent lace. Aroma had a nice balance of mildly sweet caramel malts and a slight roasted quality. A gentle nutty aroma and there was a slightly off putting medicinal aroma. Flavor was well balanced with a nice sweet malt flavors and a mild nutty flavor. No real hops. Although the beer seemed two-dimensional it was still enjoyable. Easy to drink and would make a great session ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour with thin tan head, color is excellent. Smell is mild malt and slightly nutty. Taste is also a bit underwhelming with a sweetness that quickly fades to a clean nut finish. Only real nit is it seems a bit overcarbonated. Otherwise very drinkable in quantity!

Bottle shared at Bob’s. Aroma is malty malt malt with just a hint of cellar and dirt. Pours dull brown with a decent white head. Taste is more dirt and maltness. No real nut taste or dark fruits. Really one dimmensional and not that tasty. Wasn’t a huge fan.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smooth and fresh, but not overly complex or full bodied. Very drinkable. A decent session brown. The nuttiness was not as rich as I was expecting. This reminds me of the typical well-made local brewpub’s brown offering: fresh, friendly and quaffable, but nothing too exciting or groundbreaking.

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.
