Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, light fruits, apple skins, pears. Flavor of sweet malt, sweet fruits again, a hint of burnt/roasted malt and some char in the finish. Not bad, actually, a little sweet, but drinkable.

[Bottle] Dark brown in color with a rocky light brown head. Semi-sweet chocolate, dry malts and light toffee in the nose. The taste is a bit grainy and dusty. Dry malts, leather, toffee, cocoa and mild metallic flavor. A bit thin around the edges. Not particularly complex or exciting. OK overall.

Slightly sweet with a roast nut overtone, Bald Eagle pours a hazy reddish brown capped with a big beige head. More of a southern English brown, hops are restrained. Not very earthy but very malty. Interesting take

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa. Thanks. Pours a murky dark brown color with a small khaki head that soon recedes to film. The aroma is weak and indistinct with barley and some minor chocolate. The flavor is sweet grains and a touch of chocolate. The palate is medium with soft carbonation. Finishes short with a slight metallic aftertaste. Overall: Middle of the road brown ale, they need to punch this up a bit.
