The beer pours a brown color with a tan head. The aroma is very sweet, with a lot of dark fruit, honey and caramel malt notes. The flavor is also very sweet. I get some nice honey and cherry notes, as well as some toffee, caramel and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with small off white head that diminishes quicky to nothing. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with rich malt and chocolate with sweet finish. Easy to drink a good brown ale from Twisted Pine.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub.
Pours a hazy dark brown color with a one finger off-white head that quickly fades into a thin ring. minimal lacing.
Slighty toasty aroma with dark malt notes and subtle crisp hops. Hints of toast, toffee, nut and caramel but I’m not picking up any honey.
Medium bodied and slightly roasted with some dark malts and faint sweetness. Hints of toast, caramel, cocoa, hazelnut and toffee along with subtle honey flavor. Toward the end of the palate there is a crisp hop bite that adds a touch of bitterness to the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice honey and nut with some roasted malt in the backround. Flavor is more of a roasted malt with sweetness from the honey. Aftertaste leaves a odd plastic taste on the tounge. An ok beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear chestnut brown with a quickly dissipating brown topper. Aroma of honey, grains and malt with some toffee and nuts lurking in the background. Taste of bitter chocolate, over-roasted malt, nuts, artificial sweetener and a heavy yeast concentration. A bit too cloying and sudsy for my liking.
