1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Really, really disappointed with this one from Breckenridge Brewery. Aromas are very sweet with hints of caramel and roasted malts. Tastes very watered down.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-Pours a deep mahogany with red highlights. About 2 fingers of head that quickly dissipated. Aromas of dried fruit and caramel. Sweet caramel and fruit taste and a good mouth feel. Solid beer, but not my favorite style.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass at approximately 40 degrees F.
A: Pours a dark brown, almost exactly the color of Dr. Pepper, and forms a thin pale head which dissipates quickly. Holding the glass up to sunlight reveals a reddish hue, and one can see the shadows of their fingers on the opposite side of the glass. There is no lacing to speak of, as it falls quickly down the sides of the glass.
S: A rich, toasted malt, of the caramel and nutty variety.
T: Malt bitter strikes right up front, before rounding out into toasted chestnut with toffee hints in the background. Bready malt lingers after the finish.
F: Medium-bodied with a watery finish, and very little carbonation.
O: An enjoyable tour de malt, with the nutty and toffee flavors blending well.

Bottle. Chestnut in colour, with next to no head and slight carbonation. Dar fruit and brown sugar aroma. Flavour was much the same, with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Ok.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark brown small off white head from a 12 oz bottle. Fairly balanced taste. Little more malty than hoppy. Medium carbonation. Easy drinking nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nearly black pour with a tan head. An earthy, chocolate, coffee aroma, and grains. Aroma is significantly more complex than the taste. Smoky, dark cherries, coffee, chocolate. Finish is pretty smooth, a bit sticky.

Aroma: malty, vanilla. Appearance: dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Taste: light bitters. Palate: smokey, grain malts. Overall: OK Ild Ale, but does not make me jump up and down. Pint at Big Brew, Morristown.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle.. It pours medium to dark amber with a long lasting off-white head. The aroma is a straight forward mix of malts and hoops but nothing overdoes the other. Medium body, Medium body. The flavor emphasizes the malts with a subtle hop note. But overall this is nothing extraordinary although it is quite easy to drink.
