3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. From the brewery. While being a gusher this is still a really nice brown ale with a delicate but quite intense milk chocolate aroma and taste. Flavors also include nuts, bread, coffee, fruits. Quite alot of coffee in the aroma too. Mouth feel is dry, with a bit of brown ale soapiness, slightly acidic by roasted malts. Balanced bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2016 Dark grown color. LIghter carbonation. Wonderful aromas of coffee and chocolate, nuts. Taste was not as remarkable. Low sweetness. Coffee-like malt flavor, so much that I thought it might have had coffee added. Little bit of bitterness from British-like hops and acidity. Like most browns, it seemed to have a hole in the palate. Probably my least favorite beer style, but this one was well made.

Reddish brown on colour with a large off-white head with a very appealing aroma of caramel, malt, bread, nuts and chocolate. Some smoky flavours dominate the aroma with the nuttiness being a close second. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and nut in the flavour with some smoke and bitterness in the after-taste. Low in carbonation and a light body, the crystal hops just add the needed subtle hops bitterness that is needed to balance out all the sweetness of the malt.
