3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
9/14/13. 12oz bottle from Exit 18. Dark amber red pour with a nice khaki head that fades and almost laces in rings. Malty aroma, sweet with a touch of chocolate, plenty of caramel and toffee lingering in there. Sweet, sweet flavor, like a caramel candy bar (wish this was dry and on nitro) with toffee and just barely a bitter, roasty aspect if you search for it. Lingers a touch less sweet, but caramel lingers in the flavor. Not bad.

Many thanks to my Secret Santa nimbleprop for this beer!!
Reddish-brown in the glass, nose is dark malty, plums, not too nice. The beer starts rough, malty. Dark red fruit. Plums. Viscous. Slightly sweet - too sweet. Dark dried cherries, The aftertaste is medium, fruity, a bit of dark and bitter chocolate, espresso, but this doesn’t fit. Slightly unround. The aftertaste is long, intense but a bit pushing. And not really easy to drink.
Nice experience, but it didn’t convinced me. --> 6/8/7/7
