4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle shared by Anndiesel. Deep burgundy brown, looks unfiltered. Thin, steady beige/off-white head. Clean, mellow brown malt, toffee. Kind of nails it. Certainly a unique creature, but has some familiar feelings..think OSA mixed with the Bock. The hops are different, giving it a tangy orange-lime sour feel..not so much depth there. The malts are chewy and really shine. Almost a taste of rye going on. Good stuff.

Draft @ beertemple. Aroma is huge caramel, liquorice, candy like. Flavour is nice roasty liquorice with a caramel coating. A bit cloying, couldn’t drink a pint.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep ice-tea colored body with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, alcohol, earth, caramel, pit fruits and nuts. Medium-bodied with a creamy finish. Pungent nutty flavors with caramel, a touch of dryness and some light hop finish. Aftertaste is mostly about the malt and nuts here with some very mild earth and dryness throughout. Overall, a nice brown, but a little boozy when warmer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brownish orange appearance with a large tan head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt with hints of dark fruit and caramel. Soft, sweet flavors of molassas, brown sugar and ripe fruit. Alcohol is a bit more pronounced in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, subtly carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent brown with plenty of ruby highlights when held to a light source, very lively medium carbonation. 2mm overly bubblyhead quickly disappeared, aroma of caramel, with a small amount of hops and pumpernickel bread in the background. Hits the mouth with a firm medium body, malt has some dulled sweetness to it but it works in this case, middle is overcome with some more sweetness, finish has an acidic overtone from the hops. Interesting brownie.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Definitely has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Find the finish to be a bit tart and unpleasant. But sitting on the porch an a warm, evening in NC, hard to be too hard on it. Depth of flavor as mentioned in its description is definitely the case.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick tan head that dissipates to a ring. Aroma is caramel, nuts, and a hint of citrus. Taste is nutty with caramel, bread, and some butter. Really silky on the palate and not heavy at all. Really good.

there were aromas of toasted bread and toasted malt, citrus and lime hops, a little sweetness,
faint nut with very little caramel and chocolate in the background, faint earth notes,
