3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Tap @ brewery. Dark appearance with a tan head. Slightly fruity, roasty dark malty aroma. Tangy, fruity, deep roasty malty flavor. I think that there may have been a mild infection but I could be wrong. Update: tried it again and this time didn’t taste infected. Nice nuttiness and toasty caramel malts.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at SBR 7/11/09. Pours an off white head over a dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is very roasted malt in type almost coffee, much toffee, biscuit.....taste is rather sweet early, then is rescued by mild hop bitterness, with a lingering mild hop finish. This is a rather unusual brown because of the relatively high hop effect.

Draught at brewery(10/7/08)-This beer poured a dark amber/light brown body with a decent off white head. Aroma of cleanser (not sure if the glass was rinsed properly). The flavor did not come up that way but instead a nice nut and malt taste. This medium bodied brew finished somewhat bitter. Overall, it was quite tasty.
