3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at Gingerman (NYC) - Nice brown pour with a wafty head. Sweet caramel candy and butterscotch notes. Creamy body and nice carbonation. Sweet finsh with burnt sugars. This was just too sweet and underattentuated (little giant is 5.5%, really?). Don’t really get much in the way of belgian yeast either.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured quietly. The head is a thin, off-white ring. There is no lacing. The body is a murky, dark brown. There are chunks at the bottom. I’m left with a lowly carbonated beer with notes of plum, citrus, caramel, and wood. I thought it to be good, but only overall and mostly due to flavor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012.05.13 - 11.2oz bottle in tulip glass. Pours medium dark brown, modest foamy white head basically recedes to a ring. Aroma a bit bread and a bit caramel sweetness. Taste is kind if down the middle with a bit of a toffee sweetness balanced with a bitter and roasty side. Mild carbonation. Not bad, about what I expected.
