3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark brown to black with the ample frothy choco head. Aroma is roasted malt, perhaps some toffee or raisin hints. Taste is much of the same. The rye character is very subtle. This was a nice sipper, enjoyed it.
12 oz. bottle. Bottled 09/18/17. Pours a thin, well retained, light beige head, with miniml lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body.......nose is cocoa, mild chocolate, light toffee/caramel, all from the malts, minimal hop spice, balance to the malts........taste is very mildly sweet, moderate cocoa, slight toffee/caramel, vanilla tones, finishing with mild hop bitterness, balance to the roasted malts........mouth feel, medium slightly sticky body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This falls well into the broad category of Brown Ales, but the hop contribution is low for an American Brown. BJCP 8/2/10/4/6 BeerdedDave (1905) - Beckley, USA - NOV 15, 2017

Bottle. Brown with white head. 3 months passe bbd, but I cant notice anything wrong. Nuts, caramel, dried fruita and some caramel in the aroma and taste. Brown malt in the aroma also. jrodooo5 (1728) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Attractive & creamy! Pours dark brown w/ a head & great lacing. The aroma contains caramel & soft hazelnut. The flavor is nutty, slight caramel, & a bit of bitterness. It has a really nice feel on the palate & is overall a good brown!

Bottle. Pours brown with almost no head. Really bready aroma. Taste has notes of sugar. Nice sweet finish. Slipstream (2710) - USA - MAR 31, 2017
Thanks to Dave. Cool black and white drawing on label. Smooth brown ale, leaning to the sweet side. Malty, with a dash of caramel. Average aroma. Not very inspiring imho. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a brown color with a lasting finger’s worth of white foamy head. Sly lace. mjmoen (610) - - JAN 27, 2017
The aroma had a robust nutty maltiness. Light rye malt, then roast, subtle raisin all blend nicely.
The flavor brings together the previously mentioned aromas adding a touch of biscuits and caramel malts. Warming malty aftertaste rolling into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body, almost closer to medium. Somewhat sessionable. Good carbonation. ABV felt fine as projected.
Overall, nicely done brown ale that I could have again.
C. Pours a clear brown color with khaki head. Not a big fan of the dry finish. konungen (657) - - JAN 20, 2017
Klar mörkbrun färg med beige skum. Karamell, sötma, malt, torkad frukt. Helt ok
