3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear, light reddish brown. Thin off-white head. Pleasant aroma, subtle and dignified. Nutty, some chocolate, light toasty. Flavor doesn’t carry quite the character. Watery followed by light malty sweetness, similar to aroma but thinner. Lighter bodied. Still some nice things happening on the palate though. Tasty though and easy to put back. I’d have another or 4.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark reddish brown pour with thin head, aroma brought notes of nuts, caramel, toffee, hints of earth, spice, slight bready notes as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, some slight nutty notes into a bit of spice, yeast, hints of grass, cocoa powder, finishing sweet.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into a shaker glass. Pours a clear ruby-chestnut brown. Medium off-white head that quickly fades. Pleasant aromas of bready yeast and caramel. Understated flavors of caramelized malt, walnuts and brown sugar. A bit thin and a touch too carbonated. Sessionable and refreshing for the style, but would be better with a more robust malt bill.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This may be the perfect beer. Pours out of the 12oz bottle an attractive deep brown with a inch thick creamy tan head. Aroma is that of chocolate and nuts. First sip fills your mouth with a light chocolatey maltiness and as your senses warm up to the flavor you can pick out a toasted undertone. the hops are understated but leave an ever so subtle bitterness on your tongue.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Earlier samplings of this beer were not stupendous but this time, I tried a bottle and was ever so pleasantly pleased. In a glass it is the perfect amber/chocolate color. Darker than a Newcastle but not too much. Head was beige and about an inch thick. A lighter body with dainty chocolate and crystal malty nose. The flavor is all malt but not too heavy. Yum.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasted malts, caramel, coffee notes in this dry, lightly carbonated brown ale. No freshness date. An average BA but yet drinkable.

I think my bottle had some age on it, definite (slight) skunky quality that I would not associate with a brown ale... At. All. It wasn’t unpleasant, but off putting in the style. That being said it was brought to me, by car, from Wisconsin, bought that week. If it’s an age thing than the product is not moving off the shelves.
