3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz (squishy) can, no date from Lukas Liquors in Lone Tree. Perhaps there isnít much carbonation? We shall see. Clear auburn brown with 1/16" beige head that lasted about 4 seconds before fading to a very thin ring. Iíll have to update with my other cans to see if theyíre as flat. Nutty roasted aroma with some toffee sweetness, but also a tinge of some twang. Not really getting any twang in the flavor--just a nutty, lightly roasty, a little chocolatey, somewhat sweet brown ale. Semi-dry with a lactose note, bitterness peaking at a 2-3, slightly ashy. Barely a tingle of carbonation heavies this into a full bodied brew. Flavorís good, though.

Pours dark brown. Taste bitter cocoa up front followed by chocolate malt and some sweetness in the finish. Kind of a dry cocoa flavor and almost porter like. Surprisingly good and a rich toasty chalky malt flavor and moderate bitterness.

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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz can (excellent) pours a clear, reddish brown with an off-white head. The first thing I smell is DMS, but getting past that, there is some roast, coffee, biscuit, and diacetyl. Flavor is somewhat sweet, got some corn, bit of roast, and popcorn jelly belly. Drinkable enough, but could use a little work.
