4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep mahogany with fantastic lacing, thick foamy head that held extremely well and finally faded into a thick collar and lots of wisps when swirled. Aroma is earthy brown sugar, a little woody and nutty. Taste is bitter chocolate, molasses, and earthy hops. Full, rich mouthfeel, a bit silty. Low carbonation despite that huge head.

Pretty run-of-the mill brown ale. Mildly sweet, a bit of caramels and toffees, a bit roasty. I don’t think there’s anything particularly unique about this beer, which might be what they were going for, because it’s still pretty tasty if not fantastic.

Bottle I took to the Dad Pad. Pours a dark brown with a medium sized tanned beige head. Sweet malt and a bit of nuttiness. Medium bodied, soft caramel, malty, roast and a bit of cocoa. Long ashy roast with a bit of malt and nuttiness into the finish. Easy drinking, lots of nice roast notes but thins out into a sessionable and rather drinkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rich, super hazy deep brown coloured body with a very muddied glow and a nice two centimetre tall tan head - this is a great looking beer which has a very nice unfiltered look. Aroma of roasted malt, bananas, yeast, light cloves, milk and some subdued chocolate notes. Full-bodied; Strong malt note with a lot of pungent alcohol and bitterness up front with a little earthiness and a touch of coffee on the finish, all with a very big bitterness throughout from metal. Aftertaste is relatively one-dimensional with the malt bitterness hitting hard and some light sweetness as well. Overall, a fairly simple beer that looks great and smells nice, but the taste just simply doesn’t deliver - way too bitter and one-sided, while not providing any good flavours nor complexity. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 18-July-2014 for US$8,25 sampled at home here in Washington on 30-September-2014.

This was very underwhelming not a very good beer in general. the only aspect of the beer was a lot of malts, not very nutty, or other flavors typically associated with a brown ale
