3.16/5 rDev -20%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance 3.25: Poured out a dark and deep brown. Golden tones around the edges. Good sized head (1/4") quickly faded.
Smell 3.75: Very nice bouquet. Light but intense toasted grains and a big punch of malt along with a pleasing caramel and a light hint of coffee. There is also a deeper hoppiness to the bouquet that, for some reason, seems a little bit off. Not skunky, just a kind of mismatch.
Taste 3.0: Front is slightly sweet with a low-level smokiness and a slight taste of coffee or deeply toasted almonds. Middle features more of the light sweetness along with a strange hop flavor. Almost cheesy. Finish is strange: almost a pooling of sweetness on the palate along with a big malt flavor and some smoke along with this almost unpleasant hop flavor in the background. Aftertaste is short and somewhat dry and I taste that unpleasant hop again. Someone please tell me what this hop is so that I can petition the UN to ban its production.
Mouthfeel: 3.0: I found the carbonation to be a bit off for a beer of this strength (8.20%). A bit too many bubbles. Lower level of carbonation would have been a better reflection of the style.
Overall 3.0: An OK brew. It is quite schizophrenic and I cannot figure out why. The taste is off somehow, as if the brewmaster decided to merge an owl with a bear or something. Nonetheless, the beer is not "bad," but there were certain points while drinking it that I wondered what was going on. Also, the bottle pontificates about using all grains for the brew so to avoid "excess" alcohol. This beer is over 8% ABV! What would they consider "excess"? 9%? Just an all around weird and confusing experience.

3.81/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75
Pours a clear, brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of roasted malt, sweet malt, chocolate, hint of coffee, slight syrup, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an American Brown Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight chocolate, slight yeast, and slight hop. Overall, good aroma, feel, body, and blend.
Serving type: on-tap
