2.73/5 rDev -28%
I drank this from a 12oz bottle into a Rochefort chalice.
The beer pours a very light clear brown with a light white head, not much retention or lacing.
The aroma is light sweet, roasted matls, typical brown ale, a little skunk.
The taste is a brown ale mixed with skunk and at the end a little malt. This is not good by any means. The feel is very light, not drinkable.

2.85/5 rDev -24.8%
A - Nice, clear, brownish-red with decent head that pretty quickly fades
S - Eh, not much to say. Some caramel in there.
T - A bit on the too bitter side for me, malt's not making a proper presence. The malt is really too overpowered by the bitterness to be well distinguished.
M - A little thin.
D - Not bad, but a little too bitter if you're in the mood for a brown ale.
Overall - I liked this a lot better the first time I had it. It actually prompted me to pick up Ale Asylum's Madtown Nut Brown Ale, which now ironically makes Fat Squirrel seem worse...
