3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was excited to have a beer brewed by the first female FFF brewer and also carries Martellus Bennetís nickname! On draft at FFF brewpub and served in a dimpled mug. Appearance is clear, dark brown with reddish highlights that show through when held up to Finding Nemo which is playing behind my sister. A two-finger tan head collapses pretty quickly to a cap and leaves a minimal amount of lacing. Aroma is roasty malt, brown bread, sugar that hints at caramel. Taste is malt sweetness with toasty and nutty notes. Some wisps of cocoa and bread crust. A light roasty and leafy bitterness comes on the swallow. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, ashy, bitter but abrupt finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a creamy tan head.
Earthy, lactic, "brown" aroma....
Rich, oddly woody/earthy chocolate malt taste...
Itís just...different...the whole package...
Put me in mind of rich dirt, but in a good way....like the aroma, the flavour is best described as "brown"....

Pour on tap at the brewpub, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, cocoa, some caramel into a bit of yeast, bread, some toast with a touch of grass. Taste was a mix of grass, earth, some yeast into toast, roast, some cocoa, touch of grain, finishing slightly roasted, slightly sweet.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a lightly translucent very dark dull cola with foamy lighter beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and mild notes of roast and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel. A good example of the style.
