89 Bear-Ass Brown FCB, Silverton Brewery (CO). 4.2% ABV (3/11)

Pretty ruby mahogany color. Rich chocolate-covered coffee bean aromas and a flavors with a crisp, round, dryish medium body and a long, vibrant, pumpernickel toast and roasted nut finish with light leafy hops. Very tasty.

87 Bristlecone Brown Ale, Uinta Brewing Co. (UT). 4% ABV (3/11)

Rich copper color. Rich nut bread toast, soy sauce and sunflower seed butter with a round, frothy dryish medium body and a pleasant root vegetable, weak coffee and kale-like hop finish.

86 Tiger’s Eye, Blue Heron BrewPub (WI). 4.2% ABV (2/13) %{Brewpub}

Bronze color. Aromas of chocolate coated biscuit and mocha with a very supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a touch of toasted fruitcake, jicama and latté on the finish. A solid, clean mild.

82 Bar Sinister Mild Ale, Destihl Restaurant & Brew Works (IL). 4% ABV (5/11) %{Brewpub}

Deep reddish brown color. Elusive aromas of over-roasted whole nuts, fish bones, canned peas and cranberry bread toast with a supple, dryish medium body and a blackstrap molasses, singed soybean and dusty black licorice-driven finish. Different.
