3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From notes. First reviewed 1/31/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
The color of the beer is walnut brown, with a ruby tint in the edges of the glass. A creamy head with an eggshell hue forms initially, eventually fading to a ring and leaving a little lacing on the glass.
I am not really getting any dry hopped aroma. Roast malt, some molasses, and dark fruits - fig and raisin mostly, but a very modest aroma.
Molasses, plums and figs introduce the flavor up front, followed by some roasted malt and soft nutty flavors. There is a light citrus and spice kick at the end, but there is just not much hop presence here.
Good Humans is lightly sticky but mostly clean. Medium carbonation and a medium body.
I was expecting a dry-hopped brown ale, and I got mild dark fruit and much hop presence. Maybe this was just a bad bottle based on the other reviews, but there was almost no hop presence.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. The pour on this is a thin light brown, hints of ruby. The head is light and fades to a spotty film on the beer with essentially zero lace. The aroma is hoppy. It's got a nice maltiness, with hints of chocolate and caramel. It's a decently complex nose for a brown ale. The flavor is a little more bland. There is a sweet maltiness and afterthoughts of chocolate, but is lacking in the licorice and caramel. The mouth feel is definitely thin. Flavors dissipate quickly as well

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
couleur entre ambre et noir, nez de black IPA avec du café, du cacao et un côté malté, légèrement houblonné sur les agrumes. Bouche assez douce, peu épaisse, même fluette, sur le café, les agrumes d’IPA (pamplemousse surtout), un côté toasté/vanillé aussi. Finale moyenne, manque un peu d’amertume. Une bière assez facile à boire, mais qui manque d’épaisseur et de longueur.
