8/12/08 On draught at the brewery. Aroma is all sweet roast malt with strong caramel. Appearance is brown and on the darker side, with a medium maintained cream colored head. Flavor is sweet/sour malt dominant with roast and moderate bittering. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a moderate carb texture and lingering grainy finish. Overall, fairly good with decent complexity; the sweet/sour blend can be a bit strong depending on teperature.

Draft at Strange Brew. Pours murky medium brown with a dense and creamy tan head. Mild, nutty, bready nose, fair amount of malt sugar but not cloying or sugary. Light, crisp body, with bracing and well-placed carb. Nutty, bready, dry mid-palate. Mild and restrained, but well made and very drinkable.

Red-amber and opaque with a minimal white head. Aroma is mild, red fruits, nutty and caramel malt. Taste is scotchy caramel cake, spicy hops and a sweet finish with mild vanilla undertones. Mouthfeel is smooth and pleasing. This ale is nice but could have more in the aroma and flavor.
