4.6/5 rDev +12.2%
Poured bottle into glass. 7.2% abv
Appearance- Pours a deep caramel brown color, almost black. Has a lasting brown head.
Smell- Sweet malty aroma like caramelized sugar. Citrus like as well.
Taste- Roasted dark chocolate brings about a sweet richness in the pronounced taste. Caramel is evident as well just as it was in the smell. Towards the end the hops shine, as the bitterness lingers.
Mouthfeel- Medium-heavy in body. Good carbonation.
Overall- A beer that is impressive. Full of taste. The chocolate taste played well with the hoppy bitterness. A great brown all and one to try!

4.28/5 rDev +4.4%
Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck bottle with “Packaged In” date on the side of the label.
Appearance: Deep brown bordering black, tiny bubbled but foamy head that stays strong and does not want to go anywhere.
Smell: Herbal and floral hop aroma on top of an unsweetened chocolate and caramelized sugar that some close to a light molasses. Touch of alcoholic esters and dark fruity undertones are detected.
Taste: Fiercely smooth with a layer and complex mouth feel of the medium body. Intricate within the malt flavours ranging from burnt sugar to light roasted malt, nutty almost chocolate to dark bread. Hops are well within the threshold and wield an oily bitterness, flavours tag right along with herbal and floral to the point of being nearly sweet. Mild alcoholic esters with a light mix berry and currant fruitiness. Unsweetened chocolate flavour unfolds slowly on to the taste buds middle to end, close to a carob flavour. Veggie hop finish with remnants of the toasted and roasted malts in the after taste.
Notes: A big yet somewhat humble brown ale, all the flavours and complexities are there but none really want to be dominant. This could be considered a stock or strong ale due to its 7.2% abv, look at it as a sizeable brown ale. An impressive brew.
