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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper with a small white head. Looks kinda like anchor steam in the glass. I just had a flashback to being a kid and watching my parents drink anchor steam and bass ale at the table and what the beer looked like, smelled like, and on occasion what it tastes like. Nose is nutty and grainy. Flavor is malty, less grainy but its still present, metallic finish. Slightly bitter finish.

Flavor: The taste is medium-plus sweet with a light, but crisp, earthy hop bitterness to it

Wow, only the 3rd rater. I found it interesting that this one only has 2 ratings before me and I can buy it in Arkansas (and Iíve been seeing it there for a couple of weeks now). Anyway, I found it pretty interesting. It isnít a stand-out, but itís a solid beer.

Cashews, maple syrup, and pencil shavings on the nose with elderberry accents. Quelle surprise! Hazy rust, thin yellow head. Pencil shavings and maple syrup flavor, nicely balanced. Generic bitter finish. Malt bomb with character.
