3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is quite malt forward, with a little bit of caramel and toasting in there. I also get some earthiness in there, as well. Taste is a bit odd - slightly bitter up front, but finishes with what seems like a slightly sweetened iced tea. Not bad, but not something I would seek out again.

Split a bottle with friends. Poured a relatively clear, dark amber color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was notes of sweet caramel notes, nice toffee, dark fruits. Flavor was nice, dried dark fruits, some notes of caramel, light sweetness. Nice light earthy hop taste. Pretty darn drinkable.
