3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this brew at Meconi’s in Tacoma, but can’t find another record of it, so not sure about this one. Appealing dark-honeyed amber with thin kiss of cream head. Feint malty head. Good mouthfeel. Honey malt flavor with some honey heaviness on the tongue and some tannic malt twang on the finish. Decent grainy underpinning.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Naked City. Cloudy dark brown. Loose dark gray head. Chocolatey, graham crackery nose. Creamy medium body. Chocolate and graham crackers come through on the mid-palate as well. A little bit messy and unbalanced toward the sweet, but pleasant and drinkable nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
5/16/09 on draft at the brewery. Aroma is lightly sweet roast forward with a very faint floral sourness in the background. Appearance is hazy brown with a moderate white head. Flavor is rich roast forward with light Munich, moderate caramel and low bittering. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carb texture. Overall, a good balance of sessionability and complexity for the summer months.
