3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark chestnut brown hue, with a slim, but resilient browned silken head. A pretty balanced, nutty brown ale that is more British than American as the malt profile is the centerpiece, with muted hops just providing the support. Nice hazelnut and easy roasted aroma that follows through similarly on the palate. Just a good solid, nutty brown ale.

Bomber. Pours dark brown with a smallish biege head. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, and nuts. Some bitterness at the finish. Decent Brown Ale.

Warm brown colour in draught. Sweet and nutty with a bit of pecan? in the aroma. Again, would make a good session beer if served in small enough glasses. Good for washing down spices.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a semi-cloudy copper-brown with a very small tan head that goes away quickly, and little to no lacing.
smell is of molasses, wood, roasted malt, hazelnut, and chocolate.
taste is a little oily, malt, some spice, a little cocoa, hazelnut, some roastiness, and a few hops. ends oily and somewhat spicey.

Looks a little thin. The nose is dusty, nutty malt. In the mouth it is super smooth and light with some real nutty sweetness in the finish. Pretty good but not something I’ll pay to revisit.

Growler from Chuck’s. Tasty if mellow brown ale. I suppose it’s not supposed to be too sweet but there seems to be something missing. Interestingly nutty. Slight tang in the finish, like a Guinness.

Tap @ Parkway, SE and other places. Clear, deep red-brown pour with a creamy, tan head leaving heavy, coarse lace. Coffee nose is a bit of a turn-off for me, but most will like it. Medium-light body and carbonation. Bitter chocolate, toffee, burnt caramel, coffee and a touch of honey liven this one up without making it overly sweet and thereby not sessionable. Hops are peppery and pine and very much in the background as they should be for a brown ale. Quite tasty, have more than one!
