3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Poured a very dark clear ruby red black with a slight foamy head. No lace. Quite malty but pleasantly balanced. Burnt chocolate caramels. Citrus zest and pith. Christmas clear toys. Decent hop bite in a gentle dark caramel envelope. Body reads a bit watery but the right notes are there. Never had before but would certainly have again.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This $5.09 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of almost all foam finely sized dark tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent dark red brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild hops and mild brown malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
