3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a Thursday night prior to leaving the country for two weeks. Appearance is a very dark, cola like brown, slightly clear, with a rich but creamy off white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is pretty faint, mostly malty, bit of caramel, but mostly smells crisp. Taste has a light bitterness and a malty finish, tastes like a ’session’ ale, not bad stuff but nothing exceptional. One of the lower ones of this 15 part Two Bros series.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep copper brown color with a very small film head. Nose has a fantastic malt nose with some very light earthy hops highlights. Lots of marris otter malt kick, some light chocolate, light peat but overall a very smooth malty nose. Flavor has some light burnt caramel malt sweetness with a touch of chocolate to sweeten it up. Brew finishes with a slight acidic bite that really accentuates the hefty toasted malt finish. Body is modest with a lot of fine carbonation, making it feel slightly thinner. Overall a really good brew. Tons of rich malty flavor, fitting the style perfectly. Great candidate for a session evening with friends.

On tap. Dark brown body with a small white head. The aroma is spot on for the style. Peated malt with some roast and caramel. Flavor is pretty smooth and finishes nicely. Decent.

Nice and balanced. Just make sure you start with it as the palate is not deep and the flavor does not extend outside of malt.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I liked this quite a bit. Pours much darker than I expected, with a deep brown center with a nice viscosity to boot. Thick on the mouth feel, with lots of texture and boozy, malt latent undertones. Nice one.
