3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 20/20
Malted, butty flavour, with hints of caramel stemming from a similar nose. Light palate. Tasty brown ale overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish brown with a bit of white head. Smell is mostly malty with a bit of a sour note, almost cherry. Palate is light to medium bodied and has fairly low carbonation. Taste is interesting, a bit sweet at first but then quickly going to some soft hoppy bitterness with a bit of sourness and a shorter bitter aftertaste. Interesting brew!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger of off-white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light chocolate and coffee with some herbal notes. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with hints of coffee and a herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Light to medium bodied with some good carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. Acceptable brew for the style but not spectacular.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It was okay for a Brown Ale. Nothing special. I did like the nose but it wasn’t as alive in the mouth as I would have hoped.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown, pretty clear, good off-white head and lace. Smell is malty, kind of sour. Tastes are vanilla, chocalte maltiness, and a bit of a sour finish. The mouthfeel was pretty full and creamy, went down smooth, had some good carbonation. I’d try this one again, but not spectacular.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear very dark brown colour with no head. Aroma is of roasted grain malts, bread, hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is slightly dry and bitter with a reasonable sweetness to it. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate. A nice brown ale, unique but nothing spectacular.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a rich reddish brown with nice foamy head. Some aromas are toast, coffee, alcohol. Most beers of theirs I’ve had have been reasonably subdued but this one goes big. Toasty malts, dry sweetness, lingering herbaceous bitterness. I found the carbonation a little harsh though, and honestly, it was a little watery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 5%. Pours a sinfully dark brown with a brown, bubbly head. Aroma is sweet, hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is smooth, with a dark roast malt quality with hints of coffee and chocolate. Finishes dry, and quite bitter on the after taste. Not quite what I expected, this moves closer to the category of Porter and Dark Ale, then other brown ales I have previously experienced, but still quite drinkable.
