onceblind (5692) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Hazy deep brown with very little head. Musty oak filled nose with some earthy brown malt and a wee touch of maple. Big palate but overall one-dimentional flavor full of earthy brown malt and oak and some sort of funny earthy syrup tone. Light earthy leafy bitter tone throughout. Meh.

oh6gdx (22854) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottled@Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Deep ruby colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is fruity, floral, citrusy and also has some mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, some wooden and very sugary. Very sweet aftertaste. This probably would need a few years to balance out a bit.

33cl bottle @Tommyknocker bar, Helsinki. Brown colored, thin off white head. Mild vegetable notes, corn, bready notes. Flavor has sweetness, bread, alcohol, toffee notes. Sweet, soy sauce. Flavor is better than the aroma, but still no hit.

On tap at brewery. Appearance: film of tan head, good lacing, dark brown/ruby red color, clear. Aroma: caramel, prune, light molasses, oak. Palate: soft carbonation, creamy texture with light stickiness on back end, thin alcohol notes on back, medium-full body. Taste: sweet chocolate and light prune sweetness with notes of molasses and slight oakiness, falling into a light hop balance and then finishes with some booziness. Overall, pretty good beer, really impressed. Unique.

Iím new to beer but I love love love this one! Seems brown ales are my thing. I canít speak super intelligently about this yet since Iím a newbie, but if you love Dogfish Head Palo Santo, youíll love this too. (Thank you for listening to my newbie opinion.)

DocLock (8593) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours hazy chestnut with ruby edges and minimal tan head. Nose is like liquid bacon mixed with charred oak, hops, and cacao. Tastes malty, smoky, with big notes of bacon, cacao, rye. Smooth but the flavor was a bit odd at first. Hell, I even tasted the SALT from the bacon in this. Finished complex, salty, and I dare say it grew on me. A technical mess, this beer could be used as a soak for french toast, and would sell a million orders. Or use this for steaks, pot roast, chili, or French onion soup.
