4.69/5 rDev +14.1%
22oz bottle. I've tasted a few ounces of this twice. This will be my first time with a decent pour.
A - Dark and thick for a brown. Fine-bubbled khaki head fades quickly. More reminiscent of a porter than a brown. Bleh, how are you supposed to rate appearance on .25 intervals--this one's great I guess!
S - Hoppy, then roasty, then hoppy. Finally some caramel/toffee. Right up my alley.
T - Whoa, burnt toast, roast, bitter deliciousness. Thinking 3 Floyds' Snow Weasel. Nice dark chocolate in the middle with just a hint of citrus. Something about the lingering coffee and hops make the beer taste fresh--a characteristic that I'd think would hold up to the test of time. A really enjoyable flavor.
M - Medium to thick body for the style. Lots of carbonation, but creamy. I like it. Very hoppy, but still balanced
O - Well, this beer can't get much better for me. Perhaps there are some palates that won't agree, but as a hoppy porter kind of guy I love this. Looking forward to more out of these guys. Thanks Spiteful!

4.5/5 rDev +9.5%
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

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.

4.1/5 rDev -0.2%
1 PINT 6 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a mug
A - This is about as dark as a brown ale can be. When held to the light I get faint amber highlights. There is about half a mug of tan head.
S - The smell is grain, molasses, and chocolate. There are a few wafts of citrus.
T - The taste has some remnants of a once hoppy beer. I taste some orange and a little citrus. The main flavors are from the malt. I get wonderful roasted grain and chocolate malt.
M - Medium to full
O - This is a flavorful brown ale. Unfortunately, I held on to it past its prime as far as the hops go, but the malt bill is delicious. I am really enjoying this beer. This is my first Spiteful beer, and I will definitely seek out more of their offerings.
