4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, pours murky, dirty brown with moderate off-white head. Nose is sweet-ish caramel malts, hint of smoke, dark, rich toffee. Slight brine to the taste, with a bit of chocolate blending with the roasted malts. Exceptionally creamy mouthfeel, long finish. Crazy flavor for how mild this is. Outstanding.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 On tap, poured into a shaker. The dark brown beer is topped by a light, yet dense, tan colored head that only retains a light amount and leaves no lace. The aroma is dark and smokey with notes of caramel, grains, fig, bread crust, and some more subtle notes of chocolate and coffee - the coffee strengthens by the end of the glass. The medium bodied beer is a nice balance between a moderate sweetness upfront with a slightly stronger, moderate bitter finish. It’s thin and smooth with a buzzy carbonation. Flavors of fig and roasted coffee dominate up front and it finishes with a pepper touch, caramel, and a light bitter wax. The aftertaste is mild with a light cloying wax and fig quality.

Bottle. Poured a thick white head, dark brown and opaque liquid. Good aroma, but taste was a bit a bit sour. A little syrupy, not unpleasant, but the aftertaste was not good at all.

Not much aroma, which isn't necessarily bad. It least it didn't smell horrible! Excellent taste and mouthfeel. Beautiful dark coffee color with a nice tan/brown head.
