3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good roastiness, good fruity flavors, and excellent texture. Drinks very well on tap. Aromas not too notable, but excellent deep brown color with good head and decent retention. A standard go to, affordable beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice brown with a finger of tan foam that falls to a solid sheet of the same with ropes of lace. Soft roasty nose with some wood and vanilla tones and a little herbal hop character. Nice nose. Roasty flavor is delicate and nearly sweet with some really fantastic coffee flavor longside some rye bread flavors. The carb is a little hi initially, but as it warms, this is alleviated and the body is medium and takes on a decent velvety tone. A nice brown ale and I look forward to drinking again. Well, well done. This brewery rarely disappoints me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can:   Dark caramel, a little burnt, thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft roasty nose, fairly
assertive actually.   Minor dark chocolate.   Softer on the tongue than the nose suggests.   Seems fairly smooth,
slight lactose like sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft hoppy exit.   Very simple, yet seems
very well built.   Solid brown, but its not terribly malty, my only complaint.

pours a cloudy dark brown, almost cola like, an extremely large tan head, and good lacing.
smell is of spice, malt, and pepper.
taste is a little spice, malt, coca-cola, some nuts, and brown sugar. ends a little watery and spicy.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown pour, nice light tan head. Looks promising. Aroma is very mild roasted grain and slightly nutty. Flavor is very mild, very balanced, consisting of mild roasted grain notes, toast, and nuts, but all very subtle. Hops are hidden away. Overall, a pedestrian brew from a very capable brewer.

Thanks to 5000 for sending this can my way.
The beer pours a dark red-amber color with a tan head. The aroma is full of toffee and nuts, with not too much else going on. The flavor is similar. I get some dry cocoa and toffee, as well as some hazelnut character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
