2.93/5  rDev -18.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Reddish brown with a fizzy and stiff head. Decent head retention and a light creamy film on top of the head. The head is moderately sticky with even lacing.

Smell: Roasty malt nose, floral hop scent and a bit of nuttiness.

Taste: Toasty malt with some odd sourness and a sloppy, watery finish. A bit of alcohol flavor sits in the middle to the end. The middle also has the flavor of overly ripe berries and syrup. The lingering aftertaste is roasty and surprisingly nice.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated and bit too dry and sticky.

Drinkability: Well, I can't say I'd recommend this beer. It's not terrible, but it's not good either. Unbalanced and uncharacteristic flavors take this beer from decent to sub-par. It's not worth the $2 I paid for the bottle. The is probably the last bottle I will buy from Green Flash. I've had several beers from them and not one that I liked.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle.

Beer pours into the glass with a beautiful clear light milk chocolate brown with rich red leathery highlights. Almost no head, but what is there soft white and finely bubbled.

Aroma is lightly fruity with just a hint of hop riding behind an oxidized chocolate finish.

Flavor matches the chocolate tone with a slightly spicy cinnamon flavor form the malt leading into sharply increasing bitterness that leads to a drying mineral finish with a slight buttered hazelnut character.

Medium brown color. Small white head. Aroma is nutty and fairly sweet. A lighter bodied nut-brown ale. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy and a little drying. Hints of chocolate are there as well. A little thin and watery, but still some nice flavor components going on here. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and dry. Finish is slightly bitter

I had this beer on draught at Stone's 7th Anniversary party.
Appearance: This pours a clear reddish brown with a thin tan head.
Aroma: The nose on this beer is a nice roasty toasty smell.
Flavor: Up front, you're hit with a slight bit of maltiness and the finish is slightly hoppy.
I was expecting a lot more maltiness.
