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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent brown ale part of a sampler pack. Deep brown color with a slight ruby hue. Sufficient dark tan head with good lacing left around the glass. Nice full of sweet malts, caramel, chocolate and light hops. More of the hops show through in the flavors, but the chocolate and sweet maltiness dominate. More caramel, chocolate, bread and yeasty notes show in the flavors as well.
