This beer has a very misleading name. I expect a barn ale to be something like a saison or maybe a marzen, but not a dark coffee-chocolate porter style. Right away, the smell turned me off because I'm not a coffee drinker, and then the taste was really off-putting when I was expecting an ale. Yuk--down the drain it went. Please re-label this as porter lite.

Poured into a narrow pint glass: color is amber, darker but transparent on the edges, head is lighter tan with an amber hue, head presents 1 inch thick and then lingers very well with good lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is nutty, toasty, very pleasant with good depth for such a light brew.

Taste is similarly good: pleasant nutty, toasty flavor upfront, thinner malt flavor as it warms; crisp clean hops.

Mouthfeel is crisp, moderate, pleasant.

Overall this is a great, larger flavor beer at this strength. I'll take this over a session ipa any day.

All right... let's try and cap off a night of marzens that has been not that great so far...

Pours very, very dark, even for an American marzen. And, okay let's look here, alright this is not a marzen so let's judge different. English Dark. Perfectly regular for that style, though maybe a bit too fizzy.

Smells peaty and malty. Pretty good, actually. Like a less sweet and less alcoholic version of their Double Bag.

Tastes very roasted up front, bitter malt with some mild floral nodes. Moving into a middle that's dominated by barley that's almost stout-level charred, and then finishing like a good, fruity British pale with just a bit of european hops on the back end.

Not what I expect from a beer that's labeled "Harvest," cus in America that means it's either a fresh hop citrusy pale or a spicey marzen. But judged as a malty pale, this is actually pretty good.

The beer is a medium brown color with a small tan head.
The aroma is sweet malt and brown sugar.
Toffee and caramel taste. Some maple syrup. I was expecting more from the maple syrup.
A very sweet beer. Definitely a lingering sweetness.
Not a bad beer, but a little too sweet for my taste

Poured much darker than I expected for a lighter beer. A faint touch of maple flavor. It drank much heavier than any other 4.4 beer. Pleasantly surprised, If I see it again, I'd definitely consider buying it again.

Meh. Not bad but barely any maple flavor. Instead I'm getting just a HINT of cigarette smoke - not what I enjoy in brown ales (or any beer for that matter). Not terrible but nothing to drink again.

From a bottle into a pint glass, dark copper in color, heavy on the malt, light on the hops,

Pours a light but muddy brown color with amber edges and only a thin layer of head. The nose is bready with a faint trace of maple syrup. The flavor is a bit flat but it is boosted by the lingering presence of the maple syrup.

Pours a dark amber/brown and leaves the same colored body that leaves a large full two finger white head that lasts a good minute. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. No lacing is around the sides of the glass. The aroma has a great combination of brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup and a short roasty nutty aroma. The taste has all of the previously mentioned ingredients combined perfectly. On the palate, the body feels about a medium and leaves a slight stickiness, not bad, nutty aftertaste and finish. Overall, I’ll go out on a limb and say this is probably one of most drinkable browns on the market.
