3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Poured out of the bottle with a very small, tan head, that diminished to a thin film very quickly. Body is dark brown, but clear.
S: Nice aroma of roast malt coming through, and semisweet chocolate.
T: Lots of semisweet chocolate in the taste, with the roasted coffee flavors coming through in the end. Slightly bitter finish. Average duration for the flavor... quite tasty.
M: Light body with a minor-creamy texture leaning towards thin/oily, and soft carbonation.
D: I thought this was a pretty good Brown ale. I continue to be quite impressed with the Wild Rose beers.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2009 Fairly dull and basic, but drinkable nonetheless. Has a metallic taste which seems to pop up in some Wild Rose beers but not all.

341 ml bottle. Thanks to Kira for sharing. Small beige fizzy head that mostly diminished. Spar display of lacework. Clear dark amber color. Aroma of caramel, butterscotch, toasted malt, fruity and light grainy notes. Over the palate I picked up light floral notes as well. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness. Caramel sweet like finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a nice reddish-brown with a creamy pale tan head, with very nice lacing. Nose is nice and roasty, some coffee/chocolate character here, also some thinness. Nose seems to slip away from you, the more you try to get out of it, the less there is to smell. Palate is nice and big and broad, with nuttiness, roastiness, and some salt, but also a faint metallic edge. A good brown, but simple, and with faults. Like all Wild Rose beers, is better (in fact quite good!) on tap.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Got that tiny brewery taste - the one where all the beers have the same taste. Appearance is a hint to your beer right off the bat - poured near zero head that vanished before I got into the basement to review it. Decent clear brown though. Looks really flat. Aroma comes out after warming - why is this smoked? That makes no sense at all. Everything else is malts and nailpolish. Actually, there are hops too. Taste is decent enough - something roasted, fake mini-brewery sweetness that is so common, bread, harsh caramel. Comes across too smooth (not quite Sunny-D, but going there), nearly flat but some carbs save it, dry and super mild bitter aftertaste. Could be better, could be worse.

Beer pours a pretty dark brown but produced zero head just some extremely small bubbles where floating in random locations on the top of the brew, this beer is pretty boring looking. The aroma was surprisingly complex, wet smoked wood, dark cherries, and even some dark chocolate, but even with all that the aroma was rather week and nothing that got me excited. A bitter mild coffee flavor is the first thing I notice, and some very week chocolate and roasted malts. This beer is very strange itís almost like a very weak flavored porter, the mouth feel was very light and thin feeling. Beer was drinkable but nothing Iíll ever crave are buy again on my own."

Pours a dark red/brown with little head. Aroma is nutty with, caramel, chocolate, coffee, and cream. Tastes pretty much the same. This beer is a little too sweet and not really interesting, but still a decent beer.
