bottle. pours tan with a beige head. malt aroma is inviting. has a caramel toffee taste that is overpowered by a hoppy bitterness. leaves an almond flavor that is not pleasant. thanks to Lumpy for this bottle he brought back from the wastelands.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin head. The nose is strong of oatmeal. Not bad, bud not great. The first taste pulled out is oatmeal, and it overwhelms the secondary notes of alcohol and caramel. It tastes like an oatmeal stout without the oatmeal. I cannot think of any food I would pair this with and I didn’t really like it on its own. But, it is worth a try. Who knows, you may like it.

Light amber color, barely any head. I enjoyed the vanilla and caramel flavor. Still a little bland. OK amber.

Bottle. The comercial deScription says "Subtlety..." That about sums it up. A little sweetness in the taste, maybe some malt. Bland.

Harsh and unpleasant. No roasted malt flavor. Sour and cloying. Overall, ugh.

Malty sweet up front (caramel) but the finish is like medicine. Unimpressive!

Originally, I loved this as my favorite Breck ale, but then I discovered stouts. I still find it to be a solid amber. I particularly enjoyed quaffing it at the original brewpub.
