2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium to dark brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy, off white head that has decent retention and leaves decent lacing. Nutty, herbal, pine and light citrus aroma. Flavor is oily nutty sweetness up front, earthy wood, cereal, dark caramel, spice and hints of pine and herbal hops and roast to the finish. Medium body, with a sticky, but slick feel and light carbonation. Not bad, but it’s a little boozy (especially for 5.15%ABV and bland other than a vague nuttiness, I really had to search for other tasting notes. Still, I could knock back a couple without complaining.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cracked this rude boy open out of a standard 12 oz bottle. Pours out a dark copper brown. Very slight sweet malt aroma on this one. The taste is standard for a nut brown. A lot of malt right away with a little hops to finish it. But really not a great finish with this beer. Once you swallow it the taste is gone. That’s it. It doesn’t linger leaving you wanting more. Very light and not much to it. If you love Browns, you could slam a bunch of these jokers. But that would be all they’d be good for. Slamming. Not a great beer. I’ll be skanking away from this one in the future. IMO son.

Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. Dark brown pour. What aroma? Oh dear rank metallic taste. Drain pour. A waste of time importing dross like this. Buster Bloodvessel is much fatter than that as well.

Draft at Coasters in Elizabeth City, NC The ale poured a deep brown color with a small head but lacing down the glass. The aroma was of toasted malts with a hint of sweetness. The texture was smooth with average carbonation,. There was a metalic or iron taste to the ale. The finish had some nutty sweetness.
