Pours somewhat opaque dark brown. Light aroma of fresh hops. Tastes fresh grassy and hoppy with significant bitterness. Surprisingly little malt flavor or character for a brown. Meh

Rating #2040- 2015.09.27 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 4, Beer 142 - Draught at Taproom Dark brown pour with a weak bubbly tan foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong roast malts, hint of nutty sweetness. Decent body, Taste is bold earthy, mild roasted coffee bean, mild cocoa, slightly bitter finish that is quite pleasant. Impressive.

Rather translucent for a brown ale. Beige head. Not a lot going on with this one. Some light roasted malts, chocolate, light sweetness, strong bitter hops. Itís an odd take on a brown- like a citrus filled hoppy brown ale. I love brown ales. I do not love this.

Bottle (22oz). Dark brown with 2 figure head. I think this was an average ale. Not much malt or flavor. Slight burnt taste. Pretty thin in the mouth. This will not be among my regulars,

Hazelnut pour at the brewery. Super mild aroma. Actually a really significant hop bite in here, which I really like. Citrus and earthy sweet malts blend really well. Again (noticing a pattern with their brews), really drinkable. Liked this one quite a bit.

On tap @ Olafís. Pours murky dark caramel brown with medium thick off white head. Aroma is light chocolate malt and a hint of hops. Taste is thin bodied chocolate malt that has big malty, nutty, dry flavor. Big hops on the back, bitter notes of pine and grass. As someone else noted, this could easily pass for a black IPA. The hops are much appreciated, but definitely atypical for this style.
