From a 12-oz. bottle poured heavily into a 16-oz. mug creates a ½ finger sizes beige head that is short lived with little lacing.
Clear mahogany brown, looks dark amber in front of light.
Faint smells of coffee, sweet malt and maple syrup.
Taste follows the smell with the addition of roasted malt and a piney hop bitterness. Semi sweet finish.
Even medium body with below average CO2 and a clean finish.
Lots of coffee in the smell and taste, smooth drinker with faint alcohol. Light on the hops, very English.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - deep reddish brown with only a small foam head and minimal lacing
Smell - almost non-existent. Just some sweetness, not much there.
Taste - Rich charred and even burnt malt with caramel, maple syrup, and dark chocolate notes. Fairly sweet as it typical with brown ales. The roasted malt lingers and forges with the roasted nut flavor. Medium-low carbonation. Medium-heavy body.

Overall, a very tasty beer. Not my favorite brown ale but it has lots of flavor and i enjoyed it
Give it a grade of A-

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.

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.
