4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head. Aroma has cereal toast, nuts, floral hops and light tree fruit. Flavor starts with subtle sweet stone fruit and cereal malt, then some nice tast and nutty malts, tree fruit, yeasty and crusty fresh white bread, nice floral and ever so slight spicy hop notes, hints of earthy dry hay, more spicy and floral hops and mineral notes to the finish. Palate starts off creamy with a medium body and dries out a bit toward the finish without really thinning like most beers do, it becomes a little more oily, but maintains a medium body, mostly creamy feel until the end, which has a nice, mineral dryness with just a touch of booze, awesome. The carbonation is light to medium, with a blanketing and just the right amount of sharpness. A very tasty, though subtle beer with a with a mouthfeel that fits it perfectly.

Appearance: lightly hazed coppery gold, with a thick, creamy head and generous lacing. Aroma: floral, doughy, nutty, with a bit of honey.

Would drink again. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber pour some white head that quickly fades. Aroma of caramel malt, skunky citrus hops. Taste is a big improvement. Heavy toffee malt flavors are balanced by yeastiness and a full body yet dry finish. It’s like an overly malty doppelbock done right. Still it’s not my thing and vaguely reminds me of an amped up heineken.
