Brownies and coffee. First sip out seemed watered and young. I say young simply because of a lack of depth. Initial aroma out of the bottle was a bit funky like some cut weeds or grass in a place you’ve never been. Foreign type of smell. All and all not too bad. You could put a few away.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Acquired in GA while down for a wedding
A: Pours a transparent deep amber/brown color with a small creamy off-white head. Retention is OK.
S: Toasty malts, caramel, pale malts, and I do get some light earthy hops. Pretty good for the style, but a little muted
T: Not really as flavorful or "to-style" as their other offerings, but not bad by any means. Lots of caramel, nuts, toasted malts, pale malts, and just the right amount of subtle hops.
MF/D: Feel is light, or at least lighter than I prefer for brown ales. But drink. is good considering the hidden alcohol and sessionable flavor.
Notes: Definitely not the best SW offering or brown ale, but this is sessionable. Glad I tried it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(old notes) Pours a deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is mostly caramel with a sweeter molasses background and some nuttiness. Taste is fairly mild - sweet malt, then a little bitter chocolate, toasted nut, and a very faint hoppy bite. Decent enough.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at the ATL airport. Pours a clear, cola brown body with a tan, sticky head. Light toast and breadcrust in the nose. An unpleasant meaty character follows. Some faint roast comes through in the flavor to complement the toast and bread. Good BU:GU balance. Toasty finish. Somewhat light body with medium carbonation. I’d bump the score up a few points if the meaty character disappeared.
