Poured from a keg. Dark brown and slightly mucky color. Minimal beige head. Beautiful deep aroma, I love it! Good amount of carbonation makes the beer come alive in your mouth. Leaves a light film and goes down easy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with medium retention with minimal lacing. Aroma consists of sweet caramelized malt with grainy cereal notes and some warming alcohol notes. Taste is dominated by sweet caramelized malt with some grainy cereal notes and a quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is quite full with good carbonation with light warming alcohol notes. Quite enjoyable but I could have done without the light grainy cereal notes.

Bottle at RBSG. Pour is brown with very little head. Lots of caramel on the nose, not as hoppy or as much dark fruit as Iíd like, but it was solid.
