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.

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.
