3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy copper brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy beige head that lasted for a decent while thus producing some very good sheets of lace on the glass.
The aroma was typical of a Brown Ale with some roasted chocolate malts, a smidgen of herbal hops and a doughy yeast with notes of coffee, caramel, brown sugar and a very light dark fruit ester.
The taste was malty to say the least with mild chocolate and caramel notes from the beginning and finished about the same but with a slight hoppy bitterness, a touch of brown sugar and a strong coffee presence. The flavor hung around for a little while with the taste of coffee being the most dominant, but also having a very mild sweet bitterness to it.
Mouthfeel was just a shade under medium in body with the texture being creamy and a little oily and having a medium carbonation.
Overall a pretty straight forward Brown Ale. Bold and tasty, but with no surprises. Most definitely a brew you could drink a few of.

Almost a nutty taste with coffee as the finisher. This brew is alright. This is just a filler now.

Bottle. Nice light brown color, but not much else stands out for me. Just your average pour, imo.

Very smooth! Light for a brown. A hint of hippiness from the first sip or two. Tasty!

2oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly clear amber brown color. Good thin off-white head. Nutty nose, touch of dark fruit, a little vanilla. Toasty in the flavor. Medium body. Smooth, kind of creamy lighter carbonation. Very light dry finish. Some chocolate. Light to moderate sweet taste, light bitter, satisfyingly dry finish. A pretty solid english-style brown.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. This is a really malty and thick brown that is quite sweet. I like this style a little thinner and easier drinking.
