2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber color. Sweet roasted malts and caramel aroma carry over into the flavor and long finish. Very good brown, maybe a little sweeter and more carbonated than most.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very deep reddish brown with very little head. Slightly sweet malty aroma, but not a whole lot there. Taste is very smooth, if not light, with mostly malts, toffee, and some caramel and nuts. Not much hops in the finish, actually quite warming. Sweet toffee flavors linger on the back of the tongue forever. I usually prefer hoppier, nuttier brown ales, but this really grew on me once the carbonation subdued and the beer warmed up a bit. Very nice.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2005 This is a good beer to have when you just want a beer, I wouldn’t recommend it with spicy food. This beer is a typical brown ale, nothing particularly special about it other than I think it’s a little better than most of the other brown ales you can get in this area. This beer is almost always present in my beer cellar or fridge.
