2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle in New York. Pours a deep brown and a creamy, light tan head. Aroma has a strong toasted brown malt presence, very light banana notes with some very light grassy hops finish to the nose. Flavor starts off with a smooth toasted malt note with some light nuttiness, mild banana middle and finishes with a dry palate, bitter roasted presence.

From bottle a clear dark brown with a reddish tinge. A cereal chocolatey taste a thinly oily feel. Great beer that comes off darker than it is.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown with a red tint. Lasting white head. Dark, rich malty and toffee aroma. The aroma is complex. The flavor has complex toffee malt character and chocolate. Its stronger, but still weak by American standards and I like that.
