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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle that was part of the Winter 2012 World Market 9 pack, courtesy of my in-laws. "Bottled on" is unmarked / un-notched on the label. The pour is mostly dark brown with some copper highlights. The 1/2 inch light tan head falls quickly. The aroma is nutty malt, a bit of maple sweet and then a somewhat dirty earthiness. The taste is is the syrup sweet malt up front, then the nuttiness, than the earthiness that shows a hint of roast as well as the dirt. The after taste goes back to caramel maple sweet. The palate is medium to light bodied, below average carbonation and the sweet finish. Not terrible, though I prefer a less sweet brown ale.

12 oz bottle pours reddish-brown and pretty clear. Small light tan head with light patchy lacing. Aroma and flavor are roasted and toasted malts, chocolate, earthy hops, nuts and spices. Nice balance, sweet with just enough bitterness. Medium body, smooth feel and pleasing carbonation. Not bad for a brown ale.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a very dark brown with a fast diminished head and thin lacing. Scents of some robust malts and nutty hints. Drinks rather lightly for being a dark beer. Rather mild roasted malts taste with an awkward nutty finish. The way you expect this beer to taste and the way it actually tastes are two different things. Not completely horrible but definitely needs some work on its taste and texture.

Bottle. Pours a rather dark brown with a smallish white head. Nose is rather malty and strong. Taste has some toasty notes to it with that strong malty backbone. OK...
