3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - gift from family after their recent trip to Williamsburg. Pours a dark, muddy brown. Minimal tan head during the pour that quickly fades to nothing once it settles in the glass. Absolutely no lacing along the glass. Aroma has some roasty, nutty notes to it with just a touch of spice. Flavor is moderately sweet up front with some hop bitterness in the finish. Lingering roasted malt notes on the tail end. Nice, enjoyable brown ale.

Bought in the visitor venter in the old town in Williamsburg, VA. Hazy dark amber body with a small light brown head. Coffee, caramel, nuts, malt. I had no expectations to this beer, but it’s actually quite good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle. A beer that smells better than it tastes. Short lived 1 finger Brown head, nice whiskey aroma, but the low ABV means it tastes watered down.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Dark brown and fairly "regular" looking fro an American brown. Nutty and caramel all the way, but evenly spread, quite drinkable and unoffensive. Creamy mouthfeel. The finish is a bit shallow and a let down; otherwise a good beer. (#5341, 11/23/2013)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mom brought this one back from a trip to Williamsburg. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with faint orange highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty molasses, nut and wood. The flavor was malty, dryish and a bit bitter with notes of wood, nut and pretzel. Medium length bitter finish with lingering wood an nut. Medium body. Meh.
