4.5/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Handwritten batch 10

A: Rich, dark brown with a foamy/pillowy orange tinged beige - great retention and lacing.

S: Super interesting. Rich lightly roasted, heavily toasted creamy caramel/toffee notes. Big grapefruit and slight pineapple astringency - great profile.

T: So damn smooth and delicious. Sweet, toasted caramel and bready malts, some chocolate as well. Substantial hop bitterness - citrus, slight pine, slighter resin. Super delicious

P: Inredibly smooth. Medium to full body. Very soft carbonation, possibly too much so.

O: Fantastic beer. Easily the most interesting brown ale's I've ever had

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Batch 10. Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into my Half Acre snifter.

A - Pours a very dark brown that is pretty much impenetrable by light. A nice one a half finger frothy head. Incredible retention & consistency of bubble size.

S - Hops & nuts. Roasted notes pair well with a grassy hop character. Some nice bitter chocolate.

T - Nice roasted & toasted notes to begin, with a piney hop presence to balance. A bit of a boozy presence at the very end. Reminds me of a nice porter.

M - Great creamy mouthfeel, with superior drinkability.

O - Very impressive job here from a new brewery. A very interesting take on a brown ale. Do not hesitate to pick this up.

22oz, 3/13/13,
Batch #10
HF Wine glass

A: Pours deep brown. Not getting any real light through it. Nice layer of two fingers of light tan head. Leaving sticky lacing. Good carbonation.

S: Definitely piney and earthy hops. Chocolate cocoa like note. Roast. More milk Chocolate. Touch of coffee.

T: Nice piney bitterness up front. Sort of more like a BIPA than a brown ale. Then you get some roast and chocolate, like a sessionable porter/stout. Really style bending brew.

M: Big medium. Nice body on this one.

S- slight. A bit of sweet malts and chocolate malts. Some roasted notes as well.

T- nicely complex. Bread, toast and chocolate notes followed by a strong bitter hops presence. Citrus notes mixed in as well.
