2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pint on tap at Lackman. Clear red brown color. Thin khaki head. Good ridges and ropes of lace. Pretty sweet taste, a bit intense and slightly cloying in the finish. Medium body. Smooth, sort of crisp / lightly soft tingly stronger carbonation. Lightly slick in the finish. Kind of nutty, caramel malt, spicy malt. Hint of chocolate. Disappointing brown ale, not really anything going for it. Too sweet, and texture is a bit sharp. Close to a macro brown. Almost a tart bite to it, even. Maybe this is an old keg? The more I sipped, the more I lowered the score

Clead reddy-brown in color, with some light tan head. Decent lacing. Aroma is of caramel and hazelnut nuttiness. Taste is caramel and the same nuttiness. Extremely high carbonation for a brown. Slightly watery too

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flight draft pour on tap at the Indy Tasting Room (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a rich luscious brownish amber pour. Touches of haze as the edges clear up into a suntea hue, deep reddish brown is quite striking, glows throughout. A frothy offwhite head dies to a thicker ring, laces ok overall. Aromas are carmelized malts, gentle biscuit, and touches of nutty earthy malts, some mellow sweetness. Kiss of gentle dry earthy hops, caramel, and some toffee. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied offering a richer toasty and carmelized front end. Dry and toasty with some biscuit, toffee, and caramel riding the coattails. Touches of earthy malts, soil, and chestnuts. Touches of cocoa dust into the fold, some gentle sticky malts as crisp carmelized malts, biscuits, and cocoa hang on. A gentle sweetness lingers on, just a kiss of dryness. Solid, if a bit sweeter. Perhaps a bit forgettable.
