3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Deep, murky rust-brown with a tight head of sandy tan. Aroma swirls with rich brown ale fragrances: toast, peanuts, pizza dough, Hershey chocolate, spicy arabica beans. Smooth roasted flavor, though some tang and bitterness is added to a pour from the bottom of the bottle. Really tasty stuff.

Seems very much like a porter. An outstanding porter. Good coffee taste. Only criticism is its a lil flat.

A very rich brown ale. Body closer to a stout than many brown ales I’ve sampled.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bomber poured to snifters showing a ruby highlighted brown color, with a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was moderate roastiness, mocha notes, a touch of nuttiness & light caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste was dry & roasted, included some earthy bitterness, but was not overly expressive, flavor wise. A basic Brown, imo.

Dark brown pour, slightly cloudy. Single finger head. Aroma is very chocolatey. Silky smooth mouth, full bodied. Taste is full of chocolate with a bitter roasty finish. Lingering bitterness is really nice. Lots of lace.

Tap at the brewery. Murky brown pour. Nose is cocoa and coffee. Tastes of autocrat coffee syrup for my RI brethren, also cocoa powder, root beer, earth, and brown sugar. Rich flavor profile medium bodied. Very enjoyable brown.
