3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Ugly pour, cola coloured with a head that disappears just as quickly. Aroma is malty, toasted nuts, brown sugar, light toffee and some sweetish chocolate. Flavour is similar, chocolate malt, hazelnuts, toffee, bread and toast. Thin bodies, leafy hops through the finish wiht a moderate bitterness. Okay, but not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle into a Dimpled Mug glass. Pours a very dark brown that isnít see through. The head is quite creamy and quickly dissapates to the sides of the glass. The aroma is very roasty amd malty with overtones of carmalized malt and nuts. The flavor is actually more roasted than I was expected. It starts off with a tiny bit of a coffee hint that moves into a sweet nutty and roasted malty finish. A hop note kicks in towards the end of the finish. A very solid and very drinkable brew.

The nut flavor is nicley pronounced. Very smooth. Quite flavorful yet too mild and sweet for my tastes. I prefer the bolder Big Sky Moose Drool Brown Ale Iíve tried.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Sweet aroma primarily of caramel with butterscotch and hazelnut, plus bits of chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, and some general roastiness. Flavor is along the same lines but a bit more subdued---less sweet, but a little more hazelnutty and almost slightly spicy in the relatively short finish. Pretty good.
