4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I love this beer; it’s probably my favorite beer classified on RateBeer as a brown ale. It’s moderately hoppy without being overwhelming, and it seems to achieve a balance that I’d like...relatively dry for a brown ale, not as much as some stouts but enough that it’s refreshing. Seems pretty complex too. I became a huge fan of this beer when I live in CT and it was pretty widely available; here in PA I drink it less only because it’s less available. It’s described as full-bodied but to me, in spite of its high ABV, this beer has a certain lightness to it, perhaps because it’s a little less sweet.

Pour on tap, dark reddish brown pour with white head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, earth, hints of caramel, toffee, some slight red fruits into a bit of nuts, slight yeast. Taste was a mix of caramel, toffee, hints of cocoa, slight nutty notes into a nice grassy, earthy note into a bit of grain, finishing fairly sweet.

Mild und locker im Abgang mit einem feinem Schuss an Hopfen. Dahinter leicht torfig mit ein bisschen Getreide und Kraeutern. Karamell nicht zu vergessen. Ein feines Piwo ohne grosse Schwaechen.

Une bouteille partagée. 03/09/2015. Une robe cuivrée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de malt biscuit bien défini avec des notes de chocolat et de noix. Une bouche mince avec des saveurs de noix. Agréable mais elle n’a pas le corps que promet l’étiquette.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured out of a 12 oz bottle. A brown color leaning toward Amber. A thin head that didn't stick around. The taste followed the color, Carmel for sure and a little sweet but not cloying. Not much coffee like some Browns try to get.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light brown with a two-finger off white head. Aromas of bready malt, nuts and a touch of floral hops. Caramel sweetness highlights the malt-dominant flavor profile that includes cashews and a slight bitterness from the floral. Light to medium bodied, modest carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a fairly clean finish.
