3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has a dark reddish color with very little carbonation and a roasted smell. Taste is smooth roasted malt and finishes with little bitterness, but is a bit too thin for me. Overall it is a good brew, but I prefer heavier dark beers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2003 Deep ruby-brown hue. Small off white quickly dissipating head. Nutty, fruity, lightly toasted malt aroma. Starts mildly sweet. Faint caramel, toffee accents. Light to medium bodied, subtle nuttiness, finishing well rounded and clean. A bit thin for my tastes, but a very drinkable session brown. Finishes with faint hops off in the distance, nicely balanced...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruby hued dark caramel sheen. Thin beige head. Light, big bubbled carbonation. Aroma of toasted chocolate and caramel and dry nuts. Soft and gentle with a low carbonation. Rich toffee and dry nuts with a hint of cocoa in the aftertaste. Medium light body. Fairly dry. Low bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking, if thinnish. Finishes with bittersweet cocoa and dry nuts and a thicker body. A good, wholesome version.
