3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a one finger light brown shade, starting off with a rocky texture, but becoming thinner and creamier as it recedes. Some lacing is left on the glass.
S: Fairly typical of a brown ale; nuttiness and chocolate are the dominant aromatic notes. I also notice a touch of fruit esters, and even some earthy hops.
T: There’s an initial nuttiness on the opening. This slowly transitions to a middle of caramel and a finish of earth, marzipan, and mild pine. Not interesting, but I find that many brown ales
don’t fit that criteria.
M: I like the creaminess at first...which turns into a less-than-desirable finishing chalkiness. On the plus side, decent dryness and carbonation makes it very easy to drink given its ABV.
O: It’s pretty solid. I kind of feel like saying "it’s not you, it’s me" due to the fact that it’s well made and well balanced, but not my thing. Brown ale fans will really like it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap poured at Portsmouth Brewpub with Crayola girl. Pint glass. Color is a cola brown with minimal head. Almost looks like it might be flat. Nose has roasted malt and caramel characteristics. Mild. Taste doesn’t surprise you bringing the same malty, caramel qualities and feels pretty subdued. Slight malty sweetness. No real hint of bitterness. This feels really average.

Bottle. Pours clear, dark brown, with a two-finger, creamy, beige, lasting head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of resin and pine. Light to medium body, lightly sour, leaves a sticky sweetness in my mouth, a bit too much carbo, a light caramel taste and a light bitter and sour finish.

On tap the beer pours a dark brown color with a medium head. The aroma is roasted malts, licorice and some caramel. Taste has more roasted malts, raisins and some herbs. Short finish.

Sample at hayseed. Pours brown with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Solid caramel on the nose. A bit sweet on the tongue normally but it does cut the spice of this jambalaya nicely. Finished clean. Solid beer though I like my brown ales to be nuttier

Strong caramel malt in the nose with slight hoppy fruit at the end. Pours dark golden with brief foam. Medium body and slightly slippery mouthfeel. Caramel dominates the taste with a little biscuit and slight hoppiness. Moderately sweet finish. A good, mild brown ale.

Fad. Fantastisk at får to amerikanske ratings i Seoul på en tilfældig pub i Itaewon. Bedste kvarter i Seoul for øl by far. Man kan tydeligt mærke den amerikanske indflydelse. Brun lys let brændt og sødlig. Fin øl.
