3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of crajun from the Local Beer Swap Threeve. Thanks Kevin. Pours a clear dark brown with a medium sized tanned beige head. Roasty malt, a touch of edgy paper to it, some dark plums and fruit. Medium bodied, plums, dark fruit, rather sweet for a brown and I get nothing nutty and malty. More sweetness moves into roast and a touch of chocolate. Sweetness into bitterness on the finish. Drinkable, but not overly exciting. Lacking crispness and bite.

Iím more of an amber beer fan, not a brown ale fan, but this one was pretty good coming out of the variaty pack.

Hints of caramel, milk chocolate, and roasted malts in the aroma. Sleek, appropriately carbonated mouthfeel. The taste is more roasted and less sweet than the nose portends. It definitely improves with temperature.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle. For a brown ale, this beer has a very light taste and light hop palate. Quite drinkable. The chocolate flavor almost brings a porter flavor to mind, but is quite nice overall.

Drank from a 12 oz bottle. A little bland tasting for a brown ale. And dark for the style.

I donít know, there was something about this one in particular that came with the 3 different variety pack. I absolutely loved it, dark brown and a little malty. Chocolate and a little roasty. I would definitely buy it again, in fact I have.
