Can shared with ash. Cheers! Pours clear brown, and smells brown too! Like a bag of brown malt. Sweet and nutty. Taste brings a touch of chocolate. Surprisingly old fashioned. Good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is clear medium brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain/nuts), lightly hoppy (apricot, herbs), with notes of gum and vanilla.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Pleasant aroma for this usually-dull style. More alcohol than it needs, so it doesn’t have the quaffing quality that one might seek in this style.

Tap at Serioz in Denver. Poured a hazy dark brown with a frothy off white head. The aroma is weak roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a liqourice nutty palate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chestnut/ruby brown with a decent sized head. Delightful aroma of chocolate infused with coffee grounds, with a dash of brown malt. Tasted like a prime example of a classy brown ale; sweet, chocolaty, malty, with a gentle touch of coffee on the finish. Fantastic for a style that sometimes disappoints.

12 oz. can received in trade from Arminjewell. This beer is dark red brown and is clear. A nice thick beige head slowly fades. A nice earthy nose brings chocolate and nuts. First sip is a mix of chocolate and coffee. It, too is earthy. A bit of molasses and some gentle bittering hops and they grow as the beer warms. The hops also add a hint of mint that remains in the aftertaste. An interesting layer is felt on the tongue. This is quite nice. Thanks, Armin!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A brown for people who don’t like browns, I suppose. Pours brown, as one might expect. Smells like brown sugar and graham cracker. Nutty, toasty flavor, plus a dryish, slightly bitter finish. Tasty.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Freshcraft - something in this beer tastes like fucking seaweed - you know that earthy character you get from a sushi roll when the seaweed flavor mingles with the sesame seeds? - it tastes like that, and it is really off-putting - every beer I have from this brewer seems to have one fatal flaw, and I guess that is this beer’s - there are some nice qualities - a moderate hop bitterness is balanced quite well with a rich, nutty malt character - a bit of brown sugar and caramel - but that earthy seaweed quality is impossible to ignore - weird.
