2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured medium amber with a colossal cap of sticky beige head. The aroma picked up airy, detergenty hops over nutty and chocolate malts.. something didn’t seem quite right. The flavor opened with odd tart, metallic notes that carried all the way through.. some soft nutty and chocolate notes at the core.. not much more came through. Tart and metallic as mentioned on the palate.. not so good.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
amber with lots of chunks swirling around and a thin but lasting beige head. medium body with sharp carbonation.
aroma: harsh astringent hoppy chemical, brown and roast malts.
taste: brown and chocolate malt, thin sharp hops, and a serious water/chemical chlorophenolic astringency.
i am sick of paying for beer that is undrinkably full of rookie brewing faults.

from Ale in the Mail - pours clear brown with thin white head. Very faint aroma of malt. Hops and carbonation increases the bite of this. There is some malt and some roast but it’s overshadowed by the initial sting on the tongue. There is an unpleasant aftertaste with this as well.

12oz bottle pours a hazy amber/brown with a large khaki head. Aroma muted caramel and toffee malts. Taste of chocolate and caramel malts with a slight bitter finish. Drinkable, nothing special that’s forsure.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is a dark brown with a large creamy white head. Aroma has some dirty smelling roasted malts and not much else. Flavor is weak and watery. Some malts are noticable but very weak and bland. Got a weird sour chemical thing after the swallow. A piss poor version of a brown ale.

Solid pour with some tan head and lacing. Coffee colored pour with an earthy aroma and flavor. Malty with some sweet coffee undertones and a dry finish.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark mahogany brown color, with a thick, creamy off-white head, but the presence of a lot of chunky floaters detracts from the appearance. The aroma is light and nutty, with a little bit of caramel sweetness and some chocolate. The flavor likewise has a little bit of chocolate and some dark caramel sweetness, but there is also a substantial astringency that distracts and detracts from the dryly sweet flavor profile. The thin-medium body and fine, prickly carbonation do little to mask these problems. Overall, although aspects of this beer’s character are fine, the totality of the drinking experience is not something to back for.
