3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
(12oz bottle thanks to Kenny-Boy) A dominate earthy nose in concert with nuts, wood, and fruit convey the aromas. A deep, dark brown pour with a quickly disapearing tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is overall slightly sweet. Toasted malts, nuts, caramel, fruit and grain comprise the flavor. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, while the taste is somewhat subdued, this was an enjoyable brown ale that I would drink again. Very sesssionable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, some ruby notes, thin frothy sandy head, little lacing.   Soft toasted malts, a touch of lactose sweetness and nuttiness.   Similar tongue, hints of chocolate come out towards the back.   Low hop profile.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Smooth finish, fairly clean.   Toasted malts and slight cocoa linger.   Decent little brown.

Dark brown with nutty caramel aroma. Taste is nutty, rather thin. Tastes eerily like a Newcastle. Ok.

Dark brown, with a short, beige head.
Chocolate powder, nut aroma.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle served in stein (from Lawerence Bros. IGA in Ruidoso, NM)- poured a somewhat non-transparent when held against the sunshine very darkened brown with shades of maroon, lively light carbonation, head quickly bubbled away to oblivion. Aroma of a slightly sweetened malt that was toasted, molasses, nuts, and a bit of cream. Hits the mouth with a a firm medium body, feels like drinking beer with molasses but that’s fine by me, middle holds up well, finish is still sweet with a slight hardwood undertone. I was thinking the other day as I noticed that I won’t be within the top 1000 raters here on the site, and I got a little sad. An image of an 1920’s psychatric patient popped into my head with a sardonic smile before she underwent hydrotherapy- take it for what it is.
