3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours an amber-brown color with an off-white head. A surprising citrusy, hoppy smell on pour mixed w/ malts. Has a nice balance b/w the malts and hops. Light to medium bodied. A little more subtle in bitterness that a standard pale ale. Refreshing. Nice for a change.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Low on aromas but high on flavor. Lots of roasted coffee beans and some chocolate. Heavily malty yet not off balance. Rather spritzy.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Poured brown into a mug shows a small, light tan head. The aroma is instantly dark roast coffee beans and cocoa. The palate is thin with no body, tasting of roasted malts. Slightly dry and bitter.
I am not a huge fan, but itís not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Brown. Chocolate notes with roasted malts, toffee, and brown sugar. Very balanced and drinkable with a full body and low carb. I wish they would bring this back on its own besides the fall sampler pack. Pretty much a perfect fall brown ale.

Bottle. This is a nice simple brown ale that goes down well at the end of summer as you are getting ready for the pumpkin beer onslaught.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Fall Pack at local Smithís. Sampled this on the heels of SN Oktoberfest. Dark brown color with distinctive white, albeit quickly dissipating head. Near porter-like chocolate and coffee, but mellower. Definitely not your typical nut brown. A typical SN cut above offering. I like it!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a shaker glass. Dark cola brown with a cream colored head. Aroma is roasty and chocolatey. Flavor matches the aroma and adds a nice smokey note. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and a lightly bitter finish. Very nice brown ale with a good blend of sweet, roast, and smoke.
