3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Dark brown and opaque. A nice fluffy beige head leaves inconsistent lacing. A lighter aroma of cocoa and grain. A dry beer to start. Grain is prominent along with something like oats. Some kind of dark fruit with currants (?). Different flavors here. Earth and very gentle bitterness. Chocolate is noted but it is under the grain and earth. This is easy drinking and generally sweet. Flavors are not big and it drinks easily.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a minimal beige head. Aroma is mainly malty, with perhaps hints of dark fruits. Taste is sweet caramel malt and is also very nutty (maybe chestnuts) and bitter, to the point of being rather unpleasant. Disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A rather chocolate like aroma. The color is a quite dark opaque brown. The chocolate carries over to the taste as well, but with not much of an after taste.
A decent beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Good nut brown flavor, not heavy on the malt which is good. For a brown ale: smooth, light, slightly crisp with hints of toasted notes. Pretty good all things considered on this brown ale.

Draft pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma lends some sweet caramel notes and mild fruits. Taste is moderately sweet. Medium carbonation and low to medium body. Not bad, but mostly not good.

12 oz bottle This is the first of my 12 beers per month as a gift from AOPD.
The ale poured a clear reddish brown color with a light tan head and lacing. Nutty and bready malts greet you. The taste is more complex with some chocolate and toasted malts. The ale has a light body and average carbonation. A nice brown ale with a clean dry finish to the last swallow.
