Bottle from Caponeís. Pours turbid dark brown, not Carolina mud brown but the color brown your grandfather used to wear when he forced you to go to Catholic mass with him, but then snuck upstairs to the choir area so you could hide somewhat. Nose is scotch malty, with figgy fruitm hops, and mild citrus. Tastes of vienna/scotch malt, cacao, bready, with notes of pumpernickel, citrus, mild spice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very cloudy brown pour looks murky and kind of nasty thin off white head .... aroma is similar to their brown ale very roasted with a bit of citrusy fruits (clementines) .... taste was of roasted malts with a citrusy tartness mix of tastes are both there .... they also said raisins were added in this brew but I didnít really get any of the dark fruity angle .... finish was dry, roasted and of tart clementines
