3.89/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Stone IPA glass and consumed while watching the Stanley Cup Finals.

A - Because I didn't read the bottle, nor think to look, I was expecting a DIPA, but was met with a murky, brown ale, with 2 inches of a fluffy, khaki head. Seems to be a lot darker for a brown ale than I'm used to, but displays a nice color nonetheless.

S - Sweet malt presence with the hop aroma breaking through as the glass is swirled. Pine, a small amount of citrus, and a roasted malt character the dominant aromas. I also and picking up a touch of yeast/bread. Very intriguing!

T - Now this is pleasant! I've never been a brown ale guy, but as a hop head, I could enjoy the change of pace if this were regularly produced. A great balance of roasted malts and hops hit you as it first enters, turning into a generous flavor of caramel and nuts.

M - This is a medium-bodied ale that is supported by a decent amount of carbonation. Slight dryness and a reasonable finish time.

O - Although I would not buy this again, it was a pleasant experience. This beer gives you the best of two worlds; the hoppiness that I've come to know from Avery and a malty, brown ale that I rarely drink. Well worth trying if you come across it or like this sort of thing.

4.2/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: dark brown with a bit of auburn hue as it gets low. Nice head and good lacing.

S: alcohol, honey, toast/toasted malt, maybe a little cinnamon

T/M: more like a standard brown taste than the smell, but that's a relative thing. Lite woody, slightly copper bitterness behind a pumpernickel kind of bread taste. The alcohol makes it's presence early and lasts, but adds to rather than detracts from the taste. Good body, taste coats mouth a tad, carbonation sustains, but doesn't make a big presence

O: I recently made what I thought was a nice brown ale. I was not really a fan of the style, but this beer makes me think it's possible to make a nice brown ale.
