A pre-winter winner.

Pours brown out if bottle. Aroma was best part of this beer. Smells of yeast, bread and malt. Overall tast was weak with thin mouthfeel. Not great.

Nice fest beer. Not sure about its hybrid style, but enough caramel notes for a fall offering. I guess it has a crisp, low bitterness finish.

Pleasant enough, but unremarkable in a "Becks Dark" kind of way. Tried from a bottle - might be more interesting on draft... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EtTuCthulhu (1022) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2013
The color of this beer is a nice clear deep garnet with a small white head, and the aroma has caramel malts and roasted malts. The taste of this beer is quite sour and slightly bitter, and the palate combines a soft carbonation, thin texture, medium body, and sour finish.

Brouwerij (918) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear but dark brown with some quickly settling white head, almost no lacing. Aroma is malty, sweet, nutty, toffee. Flavor is sweet, nutty malt with a mild, sweet, nutty finish. Relatively straightforward but pleasant, not much balance and maltier than any old ale I’ve had before. Soft to moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texture. A nutty, simple beer.

CaveSpider (26) - - OCT 22, 2013
Not much aroma. A little caramel malt, not much hops. Slightly roasty. Very good looking though with a deep mahogany color and a creamy tan head. A little roasty malt flavor, but that’s about it. Not much going on flavor wise. Overall i can get it down, but only after a couple. Wouldn’t buy it.
