2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Unfiltered deep brown body. The hop tone really doesn’t work that well here, giving sort of an oily burnt taste. Doesn’t come together well at all, has a lot of homebrewish characteristics. Shorts might be off my radar if they continue to put out such amateur product.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bright, clear umber when held to the light. Moderate sized bubbly head. Decent lace. Herbal to floral hops atop a bed of toasted malt. Sweet start with some toasted malt and light fruit. Smooth feel with prickly carbonization. Still not a brown ale fan,

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at HOTB. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Extremely good mouthfeel. Velvety. Creamy. Texture is outstanding. Medium-heavy body. Hazelnut notes and some roasted malts lead the way to a smooth beer. Well done brown.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a dark brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized foamy cream colored head that left good lacing. The aroma was toasty malts, graham cracker and dust. The flavor was toasty and dusty with a sawdust presence, cracker, wood and a bit of fruity hops. Surprisingly dry. Long finish. Medium body. Alcohol well controlled. Disappointing.

Pours brown with small head, notes of pumpernickel, ashy rye, and bready malt. Maybe decent for an English type but not a big fan overall.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap industry. A darker beer. Mild cloying sweet perfume aroma. Simultaneously bitter and sweet at the same time on the tongue. What a unique combination for a beer, never had anything like this that I can remember. Big upfront alky kick. Nearly flat. Wew, overall experience hides alky well but you know yer catching a buzz at the end of the session.
