3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Poured with a small, lasting, beige head. Some lacing. Heavy malt, roasted coffee, and a touch of chocolate as well. Pleasant to your nose. Taste is similar to the aroma. Average carbonation. Has a creamy yet dry finish. I can drink a 6 pack with ease, It’s worth a try if you can get a fresh bottle. I would buy again.

Bottle. Pours a dark mahogany brown with a slightly off-white head. Smells of chocolate, caramel, coffee. Taste is similar, a lot of nuts and a lot of coffee too. Not something I’d go out of my way to get, but easy to drink here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Sebago Portland , ME location. Pours out dark amber/brown topped with a small tan head. Aroma was of rich malts, nuts, light coffee, and caramel. Taste was exactly the same with the rich malts pulling away from everything else. A fair brown ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, 4.8% at the brewpub. Subtle but good roasted aroma. Very dark brown colour. Small tan head. The flavour is also roasted, a bit like the aroma, but slightly watery. Still nice, though.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours mostly flat. Nose is a milky amalgamation of cheese curds, scallion, and salt. Even milkier flavor, very unpleasantly so, with a similar mouthfeel. Gross.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Brown opaque pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of hazlenut and malt. Medium body. Great taste of brown sugar, sweet malt, caramel and hazlenut with faint coffee in the finish. I really liked this, not sure why it doesn’t get more love.
