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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can. Deep burgundy-brown unfiltered body. Thick beige head. The aroma is a pinch dry and astringent. Pretty enjoyable offering. Smooth caramel/brown malt notes. Balanced with some non-descript bitterness. Kind of mundane, not so much malt depth, but OK.

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.

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount into my NBB globe. Deep, dark brown appearance with a lasting tan head that laces the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, earthy hops, chocolate, coffee, bread, caramel and brown sugar. Similar flavor, bitter and sweet, nice balance. Medium to full body with a soft, creamy feel and a lingering finish. A nicely done American brown ale.

A very dark brown ale but still translucent. Good lacy dirty white head. Mild malty brown aroma with chocolate. Flavor starts sharp and bitter and turns to bitter malty chocolate and barley. Cheers colorado.
