3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on tap at the brewery.
It pours a dark brown color with a minimal head. The smell is malty with a nutty coffee tone. The taste is a mix of coffee and chocolate. Very malty and rich. It has a nice full mouthfeel. The carbonation is low so it goes down really smooth. I will be picking up a sixer of this next time out.

Nutty, with coffee and caramel. Was consumed almost side-by-side with New Glarus Fat Squirrel. Although the Ale Asylum beer is distinctly smoother in palate, the Fat Squirrel has a greater depth of malt character.

Sports a wicked label. Is reddish-brown or cola in color. Smells very nutty and of caramel with piney, citrusy hops. Tastes predominantly of bitter nuts and has a raw, toasted flavor that is refreshing and unique. The same flavor profile shows up in their other beers but here it fits to style with grace.
