It has a malty smell with caramel mix. There is almost no head and it is a dirty cloudy light brown. There is a hint of cherry in the flavor with other malts. The brew is decent, but not great.

Pours dark, reddish with beige foam that persists. Medium body and smooth carbonation. The roasted malt has a cacao element, more coarse than smooth. Slightly bitter and nutty.

Nice roasty flavor. Moderate bitterness. More full-flavored than a lot of browns.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours brown w/ a tiny head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is sweet malt. The taste is oddly sweet but lacking in traditional chocolate & hop flavors. Kind of a weird brown & not in a good way!

Right on...I’m digging what Wolaver’s is throwing down. This is on the sweet side, and I like it. Delivers on its billing and there is not much to add. 12oz bottle.

"creamy and luscious it is not (as the brewer states). it’s an ok beer that has all the aroma and flavor expected of your average brown ale. just nothing special."

Appearance is more amber like a dark IPA than a brown. Aroma is malt, oak, nut, wheat. Taste is the same. Dank oak and nut. Bitter on the end.

Bottle - 341ml. Nice amber body with a thin, off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and honeyish hints. Its decent malty/hoppy taste carries woody notes. Ends with a good bittersweet finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home from early backlog notes 07. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malt, nuts, light toast with mild earthy bitterness. The aroma was fairly light even with warming. Nothing more than a basic brown.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber and hazy appearance with some foam that disappeared quickly. Mild amount of lacing.
Very hoppy smell.
Bitter and hoppy taste with some caramel undertones. I wasn’t getting much vanilla. Not much aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is smooth and thin. Not too much carbonation.
Overall a decent beer.
