Prototypical brown ale. This one was a bit past its prime with no hop profile to balance out all the malts so you still got a bit of that "old IPA" taste to it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 1 year past BB date, but still good. Good roasted and farty aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Small tan head. The flavour is nicely roasted, dark bread - not rye, cream. Mild sweetness. Well-rounded.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and roasted nuts. Bitter, hoppy onset, giving way to sweetish, malty and caramellish flavour and chalky notes. Sweetish and mildly sourish aftertaste. OK.

Not much to say about this one. It was good. Just not memorable. Pours light, very little in the way of aroma. Dark caramel color. Again, a nice flavor and finish, but I wouldn’t have it as a first pick.

Pours a clear milk chocolate brown. Very little aroma with a hint of sweet malt and cereal. Taste is rich malt, tangy chocolate, cereal, oats and a nice carbonation for the body. A solid American brown ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark red/brown that looks purple in certain light, with a small off-white head floating on top. Strong lacing as the level of beer drops. The malts are big in the aroma and in the flavor. Sweet taste underscored by some bitter (but not aromatic) hops that fades to a sweet aftertaste. Seems to be overly fizzy for the style, otherwise has a fairly solid and heavy feel. 12 oz bottle from the Smuttynose sampler pack.
