3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours chestnut brown with a beige head. The aroma has nutty toasted malt, mild bread, hazelnuts and richness. It has a medium body with modest carbonation. The flavor starts with less rich / drier version than the aroma with more dry bread, muddy malt and nutty notes. The finish is dry and has some light hops along with the rest. Nice brown ale.

How do you say NO when you are the only one in the room? Almost no head on crisp medium brown. OK malt scent. Wow, pretty good brown ale flavor. Creamy body. Roasty. Nice!!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pours with a small tan head, the beer is practically black except when you hold it up to light you can see amber hues
Aroma: dark roasted malt, some flowers, coffee, a bit faint
Taste: dark roasted malt but not overpowering, some sweetness, minimal bitterness
Palate: lively carbonation, leaves mouth wet, lighter mouthfeel for style, not much after taste
Overall: seems to be a pretty good session beer after I check the abv, easy drinking, not overly strong in the flavor department

Pours a bright mahogany colour with light lacing. A nose of discreet nut and dark chocolate. Notes of roasted hazelnut and hints of dark chocolate on the palette. Enjoyably crisp for a brown ale and not at all sweet. With grateful thanks to a friend who carried this bottle carefully from it’s home in Texas across the pond.

A souvenir from crazy Texas expedition.Lovely, long lasting creamy head.
A bit sweet aromas,but the taste is well balanned, very velvet, smooth.
Coffee and toffee taste, but not to sweet. I am sure this is an excellent beer for long winer months...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nutty aroma that goes with the smooth nut and small amount of chocolate malt on the palate. Deep brown in appearance and overall very tasty brown ale with a touch of bittering hops. Pleasant on the palate and could be considered sessionable.
