3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Light shade of brown with a fleeting head of off-white head. Nose is of toffee, caramel and hints of alcohol. Flavors include more caramel, light spice, earthy hops, booze and general roasted grainy notes. Medium bodied. Low carbonation. Not a bad beer, but pretty pedestrian for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Comes across as a mixture of Fruity Pebbles and booze. Some caramel sweetness is also present. Could be better if it was a bit more balanced and less sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 Waxed bottle 2014. Clear copper. Roasted barley, burnt sugar aroma. The taste adds alcohol and rich sweet toffee/caramel malts. The mouthfeel leaves something to be desired for me. Too thin and light. Low carb. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a dark hazy copper colour with a cream colored head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is of sweet candied sugars with a notes of caramel and nutty malt.
