3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Not quite brown in color but rather dark reddish amber.   Huge frothy light beige head with sticky lacing.   Soft toasted malts, smidgen of lactose sweetness.   Soft hops up front, moderate toasted malt base.   Not a hoppy brown by any means.   Very minor nuttiness.   Not as robust as their old Nut Brown, a little lighter.   Sessionable, unoffensive, and just plain easy to drink.   I could easily kick back a few of these.   Not half bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Reddish-brown and quite active. Caramel is the predominate character. Super, super smooth, velvety even. Easy drinker with no obtuse, sticky sugars that sometimes burden brown ales. Very nice. (#4975, 4/7/2013)

Hazy brown pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and dark fruit. The flavor is similar. I get a bit of chalky chocolate notes, as well as some grass, grapes and toasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle got from LiteWait. Ruby brown in glass. Light thin head and it leaves very nice lacing in the snifter I used. Non-existent aroma and taste is mild. Very light malty taste with a hop finish. Smooth yet uninteresting. The flavor punch was left in the mud.
