On tap at Hwy 40 Brews. It poured a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma was of roasted malts and chocolate. The taste was similar to the aroma with dark malts and more chocolate. Good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2015 The beer pours a very clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is almost only toasted malts, but the is some butter sweet malts there as well; the taste is mildly sweet and a touch umami with not too much exciting the tongue in the aftertaste. The palate fuses a soft carbonation, light body, and slick texture. Overall, it is a bit one dimensional, and it could’ve had some nice depth.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A friend handpicked this beer as one of three fillers for a six pack to bring back to me in Hong Kong. I like to try different beers from different brewers but to be honest, the packaging is not all that attractive to me, and I probably would not have picked this off the shelf. Poured the 12oz bottle into a pint glass. It poured a clear dark rusty amber colour with a one finger head that dissipates quickly and no lacing. Smells of malt, maybe plum and apple, but a hint of metallic at the end ruined it. Taste was a bit light and thin. It was like watered down plum juice with an unfortunate light metallic aftertaste. But it went down easy with medium carbonation. Overall it’s not bad and it feels great in my mouth, but the flavours could be more pronounced and the beer would improve plenty without the metallic smell and taste that lingers at the end.

All around not that great, but the aftertaste (palate) is really good, hence the decent rating.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper / amber with a good sized off-white head. The aroma has red fruits, toasted malt, brown sugar and spice. It has a medium body that is fairly crisp, but also has some smoothness and and some sharp carbonation that has a bit of restraint to it. The beer starts off with dry caramel, toast, earthiness and tree bark. The finish has a bit of vanilla, still the earthy harshness, some dark fruits and a bit of molasses / licorice. Pretty decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This pours a semi-cloudy amber color with a foamy beige head. The aroma is mostly malty with not much else that my nose could pick out. The flavor is rather simple with an average taste of grains and malt. There is a lingering grassy grain after taste.
