3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark cola-like brown wtih a thin light tan head, the aroma smells delicious with piney and citrus aromas up front followed by some coffee and malt, The taste honestly was a let down for me, the aromas promised so much but the taste is lacking the hops and the malt is pretty subtle. This is basically a good brown ale with a bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can (Courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 45°. Color is a deep dark mahogany with mellow carbonation and a thin off white head. Aroma is roasted malt and hop spice. Medium bodied with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is roasted malt, nuts and a hint of toffee then hop spice and bitterness. In the after taste the roasted flavors and bitterness leave it with a slightly dry feel. Overall it’s a very well done brew, well balanced and flavorful.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one is dominated by milk chocolate with a roasted malt backbone. Not hoppy like an iPad so this one is mislabeled. Too much chocolate for my liking. Had at home out of a 16oz can.
