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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 bottle. Brighter ruby color, light retention in a shaker glass. Aroma is earthy English malts and roasted grain. Real earthy with underlying sweetness.
Flavor is again mostly English malts with a touch of molasses and toffee. Pretty simple and straight forward. The texture is semi-dry with a thinner medium side in body. Malt dominates with very little, if any bitterness. Don’t know how different the original draft version at "The Shed " really was but this does hide the ABV real nice and drinks rather easy. Don’t go out of your way to try it but it is drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark matte brown color with a small soapy tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty and a bit woody with touches of smoke and dark fruits. The flavor was dry, tangy and off with notes of wood, vegetal malts and vague fruity hops. Medium length tangy and off finish of vegetal malts and wood. Medium body. Not good.
