3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted 10/29/11. Pint from the Brewpub. Pours filtered with a deep amber, brown hue. Thick dense finger width of light khaki head. Aromas of cocoa dust and chocolate, with slight nutty and coffee nuances. Medium bodied with a really nice flavor. A ton of chocolate malts with a sweet fudge and caramel flavor. A bright and slightly bitter effervescence offsets the sweet malts and amps up the diverse palate. Doughy yet crisp with a mild hop profile. The palate is sticky, dry and tangy. Good roll. Mildly spicy and peppery. Mild coffee acidity and the slightest dried, dark fruit nuance. Solid brew!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Gilly’s Craft Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Opaque, dark brown with fine khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, cocoa, coffee and a hint of orange. Taste of dark roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, orange, toffee and nuts. Just sweet enough to temper the intense roasty flavors. Medium body and medium carbonation. This has a lot of intense flavor and complexity for a 4.8% beer. It’s quite contrast to those timid American brown ales you find all too often. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
