3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep, translucent copper with a thin, tan head that stays. Good lacing. Roasted, nutty aroma with hints of caramel and chocolate. Rich, full, creamy mouthfeel with subtle effervescence. Pleasant taste -- nutty with chocolate notes. A rather tasty representative of the style.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pour. Heavy on the head production for me. Airy mouthfeel. Slightly below average brown in my opinion.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark brown with a thick, sudsy, off-white head. Aromas of brown sugar and caramel malts. Flavor is a bit creamy and the malts pretty much dominate, but it’s rather one dimensional and run of the mill. Drinkable, but forgettable.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Gusher. Had to sit this one on the sink on a 45 or so degree angle to allow the foam to come out at its own pace for a good half hour or so. Brown with a very large light beige head that sticks around forever. Aroma of brown sugar, nuts, grains, toffee and a metallic quality. Taste is metallic with light nuts and malt. Fizzy, slippery and chalky. Awful in most facets.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Bottle from Total Wine & More in McLean, VA. Murky brown pour with a little sediment. Small white head. Palate is a little thin, and the flavor features a bit of artificial tasting chocolate. Not a great beer.
