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

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

On draft. A mid-range brown ale. Decent, but lacking any distinguishing qualities. Underwhelming.

Donít see what the hype is all about, Iíve had this beer on 3 separate occasions and each time realized that it was fairly ordinary. Not too malty, no dominant hop presence, no prevalent malt presence either. Itís beers like this that I wish I could say that there was a unique yeast ester or a malt ester, or even a masterful combination of fermentation control and timing...but there really isnít. In no means is it a great beer, but by no means is it truly a horrible beer either. Yes, there are some malt notes of medium caramel and nuts, no hangover esters either, but itís not outstanding and I would deifnitely ask about other beers on tap before ordering this one.

On tap at Wingdome in Greenwood. Pours a dark brown with tiny white head. Not much in the aroma but a bit of toffee and coffee. Flavor of roasted malts with a creamy finish. Decent, but nothing special.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ SE Tasting Room. Hazy red-brown pour with an off-white head leaving moderate lace. Sweet, dark-roasted malt with a medium, almond, biscuit body. Some brown sugar coffee in the middle, leading to a dry, burnt toast finish. Tasty, makes me want a PB&J!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a growler. Thin tan head with decent lacing. Sweet, but not too sweet. Very malty with good notes of chocolate. Body a little thin but overall a very solid brown.
