3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown with ruby highlights and a tan head. Aroma is malty, light roasted, chocolate, and fruity. Flavor is sweet malts, chocolate, lightly roasted malts. Not a lot of complexity but seriously easy to drink. Not sure if I’d pick up a sixer, but a pint at the bar isn’t out of the question.

It poured a dark brown and gave the same color body. A light yet creamy, half inch, white foamy head lasted for about a minute before gently dieing into the body. Some lacing lightly speckled the sides of the glass. The smell had robust coffee flavorings up front combined nicely with some caramels and malts. Some light coffee came out as the beer warmed. The taste took these flavorings and added a nice warming sweetness. The palate was about a medium with a nice smoothness all around. A semi-dry aftertaste came out just a bit. This was very drinkable. Overall, this was pretty good.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a murky brown with a thin tan head. There’s a bit of a phenolic aroma with is off putting. Not much to the flavor, its sweet and malty up front with nothing at the finish. Brown’s are one of my favorite styles and this is just okay. I wouldn’t purchase it again but would drink it if offered.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark red brown pour with a nice head that left a nice lacing on the edge. French toast, brown sugar, caramel, clay. Mild carbonation initially probably due to the sweetness but get a bit more lively. I struggle with the sweet clay like taste but decent.

Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza. This is a malty brown ale with nice dark fruit and heavy spice complex with being too overbearing. Perfect wintertime ale.
