JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2016
Deep brown pour with a very lift carbonation. A rich toasty malt aroma with a bit of toffee and clean yeast profile. There’s a touch of oxidation but still some clean toasty character. The hops just add a woody accent to the malt sweetness. Straightforward and tasty alt.

Pailhead (6142) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate caramel, toffee, light fruit, smoke (although I didn’t initially notice it until after I took a drink) and faint nuts. It pours a dark brown that becomes a transparent reddish-brown when held to the light. It has a small beige head that fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with very mild caramel/toffee. There is a quick dose of light fruit in the middle. The finish has light smoke with some hints in nuts to barely sneak past the smoke. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

drpimento (2769) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Great, rich, dark malt aroma. Flavor’s somewhat similar with plenty of malt, but has a very long strong bittersweet finish. Palate is a touch thin and chalky. Still an enjoyable, good drinking brew.
