Pours a dark amber and is still clear enough to see through. The head was gone instantly. Caramel and bready notes. Taste is barely bitter with a clean finish. Average but very refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ brewpub. Roasty malt, caramel, very nice toffee - almost smells like something Flying Bison would put out pre-FX takeover. The flavor starts out with a whole lot of malt, dark honey, light sulfur & earthiness. A bit of earthy cherry in the malty finish.

Thanks to lithy for this one - Clear, cola-ish brown, with a nice off-white head. Toasty, slightly smokey aroma. Roasty, toasty flavor, too. Plus some coffee, some smokey notes, and, uh, mint? Maybe?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber pour. The nose is softly malty and slightly spice. Soft and a touch fruity with a distinct plummy malt character. Well balanced with a soft sweetness toward the finish. It’s pretty nice - easy drinking. Not as spicy as many examples.
