Draft at the brewery. Darkish brown with a tidy little head. Nose of caramel, cocoa and wood. Flavor is more cocoa and light smoky char with some caramel. Near medium body is smoothly carbonated and well-balanced. Excellent traditional brown.

Popurs a deep brown with little head. Very chocolaty aromas and a lot of great maltiness. Pretty solid but could use a bigger body with more malt complexity.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown body. Odd combination of crystal malt and berries in the nose. Malty taste with a hint of chocolate. Chalky body. An unexceptional brown ale.
