2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber with a nice beige head and a faint roasted malt aroma. The flavor, too, is roasted malt with minimal hopping. Good enough to drink, but not exceptional.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle:   Dark amber, somewhat hazy, moderate to largy frothy off-white head, bottle somewhat erupted when opening which made me believe it was infected but so far it doesn’t appear to be.   Lacing is fairly sticky.
Nose is somewhat of a mix between stale malt, wet paper, and cardboard.   I take back what I said about the infection.   Its not lactic, but it has hints that perhaps it may be past its prime.   Grainy oriented malt based
flavor.   A little astringent.   Body and mouthfeel are lacking a bit, but at least its not thin.   Finishes with a dirty malt flavor.   Not bad, but this one seems over the hill.   Would need to revisit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber bodied with heavy carbonation bubbles feeding a luxurious, fluffy beige top. Toasted amber malt aromas with suitable fruity hop backdrop. A touch of sweet candi sugar, bubblegum, and toffee. A decent alt-bier like body with subdued, cold-conditioned tasting hops along with toasted malt and applewood notes. Some residual malt sweetness. A solid, toasty amber.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22. Pours a crystal clear medium amber with a towering, fluffy patinum blonde head. Decent stringy lace showing on the sides on the way down. Nice big dark sweet brown bread nose with a little bit of yeasty spice knocking around. Creamy medium body, understated carb. Brown sugar, mint, and fusel alcohol on the mid-palate. Solventy. Not pleasant. Tangy, wrongish finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep amber brown color with a caramel nutty smell. Taste like a slightly bitter and strong amber ale but overall okay. An amber ale I am glad I tried but nothing to be excited about.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep amber with good head that has good retention. Smells like of fruity and I might be picking up a bit of diacetyl buttery aroma. Kind of a roasted coffee flavor with a slightly fruit finish. Medium carbonation with high mouthfeel.

Bottle... Poured amber with a thick, off-white head, nice retention. Aroma of tootsie rolls, caramel and cocoa malt. Mild hop bitterness up front with balancing cocoa malts and a grainy, bread-like finish. Caramel candy sweetness at the end too.
