3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ the Sweetwater pub in the Atlanta Airport... Poured hazy, dense, brown with a thick off-white head. Nice retention. Pretty standard for style, which isn’t a bad thing. Toasted malts, cocoa powder, mild coffee and roasted nuts. Some malt sweetness but the other flavors described kept this brown ale from being mundane.

According to Sweetwater’s dating system, this brew was best enjoyed before October of 2013. I would far prefer if they simply provided a bottled on date. Despite the proximity of the brewery to my home, it has been at least half a decade since I last sampled this beer. Pours dark brown with a tinge of red. Head is thin pale tale with decent lacing. Scent is lightly roasted and grainy. Body is thin. Starts slightly sweet and finishes with a roasted bite. Bottle - Everywhere in Atlanta

February 2010 from bottle. Copper color with aromas of nuts, malt, caramel and fruit. Not a lot of hops showing through, but nice for the style.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark brown with a layer of tan head. Aroma is mostly dark and nutty roasted malts with chocolate notes. Taste is somewhat lacking in my opinion. There is the nutty and chocolate character but it just doesn’t feel as full-bodied as it could/should be. Still a good beer though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Taco Mac. Clear dark copper. Large tan head. Aroma is subdued - only picking up a little malt, caramel. Taste is only slightly sweet - caramel and just a hint of bitter chocolate. Somewhat dry finish with subtle hops. Mouthfeel is moderate to light. Overall, fairly easy drinking beer, but nothing extraordinary.
