3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 02-19-2013 at Hopjacks Pizza Kitchen & Taproom, Pensacola, FL. This draft beer pours a very small tan head with a long retention, transparent reddish brown body, no visible carbonation observed, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, chocolate and nutty. The flavor is semi-sweet, caramel malt, chocolate, and nutty. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. A malty tasting beer that I would drink again.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft... This beer rocks!... Clear brown pour with ruby flashes and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head that never fully dissipates. The aroma is a melange of toasted malts, almonds, pistaschios and milk chocolate. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is roasty and lightly sweet with chocolate, caramel and toasted tree nuts. Finishes crisp and mildy bittersweet. Wow! I’m pleasantly surprised and sort of blown by this unheralded brown ale!

When it comes to ale’s I am not a big brown ale fan, but this one really surprised me. It has the right amount of malts and a great after taste that always has me getting it again when I visit

Pours a clear dark brown on tap with thin tab head that sticks lightly. Aroma of nuts, toffee, toasted dark malts. Taste is bland, nutty malt, nothing special. Slightly disappointed.
