Pours brown with minimal head. Well carbonated though in the mouth feels like a soda. Slight aroma of roasted malts but not much. Medium to light in body. Overall not much going on. Drinkable but not much more.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours brown with reddish highlights and a small beige head. The aroma is, well, pretty much not there. Perhaps some very light toasted malts and some herbal notes. The flavor is pretty basic brown ale stuff; dry, light roast, a hint of chocolate and some earthy notes. Nothing bad, just not much to it at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from a 12oz bottle. Brown but clear color. Little light brown head, few dots of lace. Good light smooth carbonation, dry texture, medium body. Nice light chocolate toasty malt aroma. Mostly bitter taste, little bittersweetness. Good earthy hops. This is a nice brown ale. I havenít been too impressed with the few Iíve had from this brewery, but I do like this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 07/20/2012. Brown pour with medium foamy beige head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, fruit and slight hops. The finish is sweet with a short malt aftertaste. Fairly average overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of toasted caramel and chocolate malted barley, coffee and bittering hops. Very dark brown that sits nearly black in the glass. Average light tan head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitterness. Palate is medium bodied and oily soft. Overall a decent brew that smells better than it tastes. Ok though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a shaker- well, after my turd filled day, itís time to chill and figure out what to do next... poured a very heavily darkened brown with shades of black and maroon when held to a light source, 4mm dark tan head quickly became sploches upon the liquid surface, and did lace. Aroma of molasses, a roasted malt, and some notes of candi sugar. Hits the mouth with a high medium body, malt does have plenty of roast to it along with some molasses, middle becomes sweet, finish is a bit sticky and acidic. Not to style, but it works for me!

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2012 Bottle,
this ale had a dark brown pour into the glass and made a large, foamy light tan head, this drink was too dark to see through in the glass but I did see a lot of carbonation flowing up the sides of the glass, there were fingers and spots of lacing on the sides of the glass, there was a small, thin, loose ring of sediment film on the bottom of the bottle,
the aromas were chocolate, toasted and some roasted malt, a little nut, caramel, and brown sugar,
the chocolate was prominent on the nose (which I liked),
this beer had flavors of toasted and roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and brown sugar with a carbonation bite and/or slight infection,
I know this beer had too much carbonation, there was a carb bite at the finish,
the mouth feel was light and fizzy,
the nose was nice but there was too much carbonation in this beer, too bad, this was starting off pretty good,
and it appears there may have been a faint infection in this beer.
