3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head that dissipated quickly but left behind some fair streaky lacing.
The aroma was that of moderate a toasted grain malt, a mild pine hop and a meaty yeast with notes of roasted coffee, caramel, bitter sweet chocolate with a hint of nuts and molasses.
The taste was sweet and malty with a mild hint of chocolate and molasses in the beginning and then became moderately bitter sweet and nice and roasty with notes of coffee, caramel and a mild hoppy finish. The flavor only lasted a short while, but was very enjoyable during that short duration.
Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy in texture with a medium body and a mild carbonation.
Overall a very tasty Brown Ale that had a nice bold bitter sweet coffee flavor with a nice hoppiness at the end.

Translucent brown and quite effervescent and heady for this style of beer. Nice caramel and malty flavors. Pretty tasty if unspectacular beer.

Bottle. Rusty brown pour with a tan head. Faint dry cereal aroma. Slight bitterness is balanced quite well by the sweet malty finish. Average carbonation with a sticky texture. Nothing to make this a notable beer but its goes down quite smoothly.

Poured from a bottle. Moderate head that dissipates quickly. Nice dark amber color. Sweet aroma of bread and fruits. Strong, sweet, malty flavor with hints of vanilla. just enough of a hop backbone and tartness. Overall a very tasty brown ale.

Clear light brown pour with a small tan head. Roasted malt nose. Malty taste - biscuit and bread. Some slight mineral notes in the middle that moves into hop bitterness finish. Ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smelled sweet, very rich malty brown, long aftertaste that continues to develop for a minute or so after the beer has gone down. Has that signature smuttynose taste. Well done.

355ml bottle at home. Pours clear brown with little to no head, doesn’t last. Aromas of light chocolate, fruity hops, dark sugar. Taste is more hop-bitter than an English brown ale, but nice, and with a rounded sweet finish. Texture a little thin, but nice bitter finish.
