3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle@tkcbb. Dark brown. Oaky, bit mineralic nose. Malty, sort of barley winey, but huskey, slight molassey syrupy. Med full bodied, lots of sweets, but with herby murkyness.

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.)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
