Pours a layer of beige tan head. Color is a clear copper brown.

Aroma: Toasted oats, nuts, caramel, toffee, and raspberries. A pleasant nose.

Taste: A big amount of toasted oats, followed by the similar flavors in the nose. Really nutty. Some chocolate. Ends a bit bland.

Mouthfeel: Toasty and smooth. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends a little charred and bland.

Overall, I liked the nose the best, but the taste and mouthfeel dropped off a bit. Very average.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours with instant head that takes forever to settle. Hazy reddish brown color with a very dense 2 finger off white head with insane retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice thick soapy lacing on the glass, with a ton of carbonation streaming up. This is probably infected. Aromas of huge apple skins, caramel, molasses, toasted malt, bread, light chocolate, and light herbal hops. Way over the top apple notes makes finding anything else difficult. Taste of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toast, nuttiness, brown sugar, light herbal hops, and light fruitiness. No bitterness on the finish with lingering notes of chocolate, biscuit, caramel, toast, nuttiness, and light herbal on the finish for a good bit. Good balance of malty flavors with no cloying sweetness. Low noticeable infection traits in the flavor. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming after the finish noticed. Overall, despite the obvious infection, this was still a pretty tasty brown ale. Good balance of some pretty robust flavors, and quite easy to drink. I am sure this is a great beer without bugs in it.

A: Light to medium brown with a bone white head that dissipates quickly. Fairly clear appearance, just a touch of sediment. No lacing.

S: Nutty and toffee malt. Big hints of chocolate.

T: Lots of carmel and chocolate. A hint of cherry/raspberry sweetness. Finishes very smooth with a subtle malt sweetness. Very malt forward, just a hint of bitterness near the end. A little too chocolaty and sugary/carmel sweet for my taste. It seems like the flavoring is too artificial.

M/D: Medium to lighter body, lighter carbonation, fairly smooth feel as it rolls around the tongue. Drinkability is not the greatest. I grow tired of this pretty quick. Too much fake chocolaty and fruity flavoring.

12 oz. bottle

A: Brown with little to no head or lacing. Not very carbonated.

S: Coffee and dark chocolate malt aromas.

T: Taste is char flavor with coffee malts and a little oakish flavor. A bit watery on the finish.

D/M: Very drinkable with a nice bubbly mouthfeel.

Overall this is decent, drinkable, but mostly average.

Pours a dark mahogany with some ruby tones. Quickly disappearing head. Nose- expected brown malt smell along with a raspberry concentrate smell. Taste- biscuity malts and ripe raspberries. Finishes too quick- not much complexity on the back end. Light hopping. Good cabonation. Beer is somewhat sour as you get into it.Decent effort.
