3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Double Mountain tap room in Hood River, Oregon--Poured a deep brown-black body with a bouncy, rocky off-white head. Nutty, earthy, and floral. Pretty hoppy for a brown. A little thin in the finish, but a nice presentation. Crisp and grainy, just a tad thin. Good brew, though.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty, slughtly astringent and chalky chocolate malt flavors, slightly roasty, a little nutty. Palate is too thin and not rich enough. Crisp finish.

Murky chestnut. Not much aroma - vague nuts and grain. Toffee chewiness overtop of nuttiness with a grainy, slightly astringent finish.
