2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap @ Falling Rock. A touch hazy, reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Roasted nutty, deep toasty brown malty, light toffee aroma. Very roasty, slightly burnt, dark caramel malty, nutty flavor. Disappointment in my mind. Edit: this is actually pretty hard to chock down a point.

22oz bottle. pours a brown / ruby color with a 2 finger off white head which settles down to a quarter inch throughout... nice head retention. sweet and bitter nose. rich caramel malt tones with roast, light fruit and some citrus hop notes. medium body with layers of sweet malts, toffee, light chocolate, orange, grapefruit and light banana. crisp finish with some Citra hop notes coming through and more sweet malt character.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2011 Bottle at home. small white head that dissipates quickly, Sweet, dominant malt flavours, an old style beer, cant detect much Citra hop perhaps just a slight bitterness in the finish not bad if your into this sort of thing

If anything this was interesting. The flavor was hard to pinpoint. The easy ones were caramel, toasted malts, light citrus hops, and one strange flavor that i kept thinking tasted like swedish fish. I didnt dislike it but it wasnt necessarily good.

Bottle, darker malta in the aroma. Caramel apples are dominant flavors. Some hop bittering in the finish. Slightly charming, digging it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep copper brown color with aroma of roasted malt. Taste is complex but smooth with hints of sweet molasses mixed with roasted hops. Overall a tasty beer with a mild bitterness that goes away quickly once the beer is swallowed. A tasty beer.
