4.1/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.

4.24/5  rDev +3.2%
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.
