3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours dark brown with amber edges and thin tan head. It left a pretty decent sediment layer on the bottom of the bottle for a fairly fresh Brown Ale. The mild aroma offers up whiffs of roasted malts, a touch of yeast, nuttiness and a bit of earthy maltiness. The taste is pretty creamy with a mix of roasted malts, sweet nuttiness and a thin layer of earthiness. At times a bit of dark roasted malts is noticed too. Decent enough brown.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is inviting with toffee, honey, and a touch of chocolate. The appearance is medium brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a nasty chemical bitterness in the finish. The palate is average. Overall a little disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Whip-In. Pours a dark brownish red color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is of roasted malts, some nuts and decent malts. Not a bad smell. Flavor is roasted malts big time with a slightly ashy finish. There is lots of nutty flavors and dark caramel malts. The burnt flavor fills in on the finish and lasts for awhile. Wish the finish was better.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2010 Deep brown with full cream colored head. Aroma of roasted malt and a touch of fruit. Tastes of roasted and chocolate malt, a bit of dry hops, molasses and a touch of honey. Not all bad, but like everything I’ve tried from twisted pine, it’s too heavily carbonated. And also, just like their other beers, there is a fakeness to it, as if they just put flavoring in the beer rather than actually brew what the label says.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Deep burgundy-brown, soapy, oily head, off white. Deep malty aroma. Honey brown is forbidden territory, thanks to Dundee, but this beer snatches the style right back. Quite excellent, the honey complements the dark malt tones perfectly. Medium to full bodied, displays an extra clean mouthfeel. Really exceeded my expectations, extremely well executed.
