3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a one finger frothy beige head that had pretty nice retention. The nose is pretty nice, plenty of nutty maltiness with a bit of chocolate and some nice bright hoppiness. The flavor isnít the best for me, the malt is a bit too dusty and husky up front, just a little sweetness, and a light coffee flavor towards the back end. Plenty of citrus hops in here, but it doesnít really work all that well in a Brown Ale for me. The nutty notes donít really blend too well with the fairly aggressive bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fizzy soft carbonation. Meh, this one just doesnít do it for me, I think Iíll take my Brown Ales and IPAs in separate glasses please.

Not a huge fan of aba to begin with. Looks great tho. Different choice of hops might go a long way in keeping the mellow aspect of the more traditional version.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Under Durty Mud Season label. Copper pour with a thick tan head. Light and mild hop and nutty malt aroma. Very subtle though. Slightly hoppy at the start of the flavor with a malty, cocoa and nutty combination in the middle. Hops linger on for a bit and leave a slightly dry aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is malts, spices and light citrus/pine. The flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruit, hop resin, malts and a long and very bitter finish. Getting the impression if you want a strongly bitter IPA/IPA variant, Smuttynose is among the best.
