3.77/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a nice mahogany red brown in color with a light tan head that has great retention.

Smell is a mix of both malt and hops forward. Malt smells lightly roasted, husky and grainy. Hops smell mainly piney and herbal.

Taste follows the nose with a mixture of malt and hop both coming through on the front end. Malt is semisweet and lightly roasted letting a little bit of the husky grain flavor come through before it is overridden by a big oily herbal and pine hop presence that is pretty bitter.

Mouthfeel is good. medium to light body is offset by a big resiny oily hop presence that has mild bitterness. Mild carbonation helps soften the bitterness but not by much.

This is a big brown being offer by Solemn Oath. The beer poured a clear brownish amber with white head. The scent had a maple base with fresh hops that leaned toward pine. The taste was a good mixed between bread and pine needles. The mouthfeel was full in body with ok carbonation. Overall this is good and I would try it again. Proabably could be classified as an India Brown Ale.

2015 Release (6.6% ABV)
Reviewed on May 4th, 2015
22 Fl. Oz. bottle
Served in a Nonic Pint Glass

Eyes
Poured a clean mahogany body with a nice amber glow. A light tan head formed (roughly half of an inch in thickness), collapsed, and left a sparse amount of lacing.

Nose
Toasted grains. Caramel. Burnt toast. Trace of nut. Tart, roasted tone overall.

Mouth
Heavy hit of toasted malts hit the tongue first. Carmel, toast, and roasted nuts. Sharp notes of coffee, dark chocolate, and charred toast quickly built up, giving this a dry finish. Notes of alcohol broke through every now and then. Medium-bodied. Low/moderate carbonation.

Notes
Amped-up brown ale. Great spread of flavors but too burnt for my liking.

The beer looked fine and appeared to smell like a typical brown ale. The taste was definitely off. I've my share of many brown ales and this tasted like something could have been wrong but wasn't sure. Think for a brown as well. I wouldn't recommend but would try it in bottle or on tap again to compare.

Served in standard shakers pint glass. Dark brown in color. Sort of clear. Served with about a quarter inch of creamy yellowy head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is .... Stinky. Chocolate? Stewed vegetables? What is that? Maybe a woodsy earthy note. I don't know. It not overly pleasant though. Taste is slightly better. Cheap watered down chocolate notes. Brown malts. Toast. Brown bread. Somewhat earthy and dirty tasting. Medium bodied. Medium bitterness. Medium carbonation.
Not sure about this beer, but I sure the hell wouldn't order it again.

3.5/5  rDev -5.1%

22oz bottle at fridge temp split between two pint glasses. 31109a005171 is one of the two conflicting overlapping codes on the bottom of the bottle.

Pours clear brown with a small head, not much carbonation. Smell is mildly roasty, a little bready. Some tea.

Taste is surprisingly bitter. A little tea.

Mouthfeel is tin and light. Overall pretty good.

3.7/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle
A - creamy tan head, ruddy brown body
S - malty and fruity nose, a bit nutty, a bit of chocolate, a bit of yeast
T - nutty grain, chocolate, yeast, caramel, brown sugar, fruity
M - medium, creamy and smooth, semi-bitter finish
O - nice brown. I like more chocolate notes than what this had, but I'm not complaining. I doubt I'd get this one again, but good to try from a local brewery for a decent bomber price ($5.99).
