4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Kind of a strong nose of Cascade hops for a brown ale. Starts off sweet then surrenders to a woody flavor that eventually morphs into a very creamy and slightly brown sugared land slide. Awesome.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of my secret santa… whose ID is still unknown. Pours a lightly hazed and somewhat murky brown with a large dark beige head. Aromas of light bitter cocoa, malt, toast and roast. Medium bodied, nice big malt with a good amount of roast, but not overpowering. Chocolate, slight vanilla with almost a touch of wood. Finishes up with a light bitterness, subtle chocolate overtones and a light roasty sweetness.

In the bottle from Holland MI. This pours brown with a very thin white head. Nice chocholate aroma with a splash of chicory. Slightly thin in body with a nice sweetness framing the chocolate notes. Very drinkable session beer.

Bottle. Pours brown with red highlights and a foamy beige head. Notes of coffee, chocolate, toffee, with a slight burnt note. Some kind of weird burnt bready, doughy note that was a little odd, but otherwise pretty tasty. decent session beer.

Wow, a very solid nutty lightly roasted flavor with a smooth finish on this one! Dark brown with faint head, but I can’t really get much off the aroma. Still, the taste was very solid and a very enjoyable session beer.
