3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Enjoyed at the 4 Queens brewpub. A dark brown beer with a tan head. Caramel and nuts in the aroma. Lots of malt in the flavor and just a bit of earthiness. Served very cold. Quite sweet to the point that anything interesting was hdden.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at 4 Queens in LV - minimal head atop a brown body, hint of red at the edges - decent lacing. Aroma is subtle - sweet malt dominates, hint of chocolate, slight hint of alcohol. Flavor is pretty good...chocolaty malt, hint of caramel...not complex, but given what I was in the mood for, that was just fine with dinner. Palate is generally smooth and this was easy to drink. Not world class by any means, but definitely a sessionable beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught sampler. Ruby colour. Aroma of malts, vanilla, some whiskey notes as it warmed. Taste a thin reflection of the aroma, on the sweeter side. A little plain, but good enough.
