3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is murky brown / copper with an average khaki head in this glass; it retains on the average side, with some very light lacing present in this glass. The nose is light sour, sweet bread, toffee, hazelnuts, brown sugar, and toast here - with some fruit esters present. The flavor profile is at first burnt toast, brown sugar, toffee, more fruit esters, roast notes, wood, leather - but unfortunately the flavor profile is muted and thin here. Bittering hops, more fruits, more meh. It had a lot of elements and I found them messy and ultimately a bit disappointing for what Iíve come to expect out of this brewery overall.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
Very distinct malty flavor, but with nice complexity. However, if you are someone who does not like a lot of malt in your beer, this isnít for you.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. An almost clear one, brown in color and with a small, dense, beige head. Toffeeish and bready aroma with some fruity hints. The flavor is pretty much the same, quite sweetish. Fruity and bready, with toffee hints. Dry and quite pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish with a pleasant alcohol warmth. A quite pleasant one, but too one dimensional. 130216
