3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Black body with a light tan head. A leathery nose with some citrus. There is also some caramel sweetness. This tastes of oranges and tobacco. There is also some bit of toffee and a little bit of bread crust. A medium carbonated rather thin body. A decent beer overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well the 12 oz bottle says Stevens Point,WI not Nebraska.Pour is a dark mahogony very clear,with slight head.
Aroma is some chocolate,mineral a little sweetness,and some mild hops.Hard to point out hops but I notice some herbal spicey.
Smooth chocolate and roast, good solid hop presence ( notice herbal/earthy), some slick and very smooth, finishes a nice spice/piney bittering. Has a good finish and good taste overall. I like.Pretty nice.
Smooth chocolate roast with a mellow sweetness that works well with the smooth spicey piney bittering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a reddish brown, not black at all, light brown head that sticks around for a while and some lacing, aroma has a slight amount of hops and citrus, a little bit of chocolate and malt, flavor has a slight chocolate touch on the front end with a bitterness in the finish, doesn’t seem very balanced at all, too bitter in the finish without the roastiness of the malt and chocolate, ugh.
