2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz..bottle. pours a see through brown, off head. nose is dry roast lightly sweet. taste is boneless roastiness, lightly nutty, carmel malt and semi-sweet. nothing to offend here, meh.
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a brown color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Mild stringy lace.
The aroma was nutty, caramel, chocolatey, and a touch of honey. Subtle crisp spicy hops at the end.
The flavor blends the sweet to the nuttiness and shapes in some of the spiciness to round it all out. Nicely blended aftertaste of all of the previously mentioned tastes. Smooth nutty finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Good carbonation and the ABV felt fine.
Overall, pretty good brown ale, thanks Steve. wlajwl (6809) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 12, 2017

Bottle Pours a clear redish brown. Thin quick light tan head. Malty nuttiness and a smith palate. Quite nice. The 4% ABV is also nice. Cajun (534) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - MAR 25, 2016
12oz bottle - Pours, well, brown with a very thin white head that disappears quickly. Aromas of toasted nuts and leather. WEAK but detectable flavors of an earthy, woody, malted grains...with a soft bitter finish. Not much to rave over. Drinkable, but lacking.
