4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown (almost black) with a really thick tan head. Smells of toasted malts and the taste is loaded with toasted malt and balanced out very good with the hops to make this not too sweet not overly bitter. Almost as good as my all time favorite brown ale so this one will be high on my list to find fall. Had to dock my overall a couple points due to having to get it in the CAN.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown color with some nice red in there as well. There was a small off white head that dissipated rather quickly but still managed to leave some lacing. The aroma is quite rich. Medium to dark roasted malts. Dark brown bread crust. And some sweetness mixed in as well, maybe some caramel. The taste is very similar. Not much noticeable hop presence and there is a medium mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a deep brown with red highlights and a high, fine-grained, creamy, solid light brown head. Nose is brown sugar, pecans, cherry, molasses, caramelized pears, and chocolate malted. On the tongue, it’s drier than the nose; smoke, caraway, biscuit, and pumpernickel take the lead, with baking chocolate, black tea, and coffee soon after. The finish has more fruit and sweetness, with a hint of spice; there’s the ghost of a fruitcake there as it fades. Nice beer, and a bit more of a rough edged take on the brown ale.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2016 Dark dark brown in color, light beige head, cascading lace. Nutty aroma, toasted nuts, a hint of cocoa. More chocolate in the taste, more cashew and peanut m&m...crisp, sharp finish. Like a bold porter.

Great malty brown (black?). Short finish. Not at all hoppy. Almost the flavor of a light porter

Pint glass at DH- served a blackened with heavy maroon shading color, several frog eyes on the quarter inch off white head. Aroma of molasses, leaves, and nuts. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt has caramel and love in it, middle holds up well, finish is sweetened but balanced. Really enjoyed it.
