3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
ABC fest 06: Pours a mostly clear deep amber with woody brown highlights and a thin white head. Aroma is nutty and thick toasted malts with hints of caramel and light herbal noble hops. Slight crackery malt flavor with some toast, and light nuts in the end- overall a bit weak and not as full in the mouthfeel, but this could be due to its low abv.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Tedwarhc for this bottle. Served in a tulip.
Pours a bright light copper-brown color with a very, very thin white head and only a bubble or two on top after a few seconds. No lacing. The nose brings some light caramel and bread crust along with faint earthy hops. Flavor is a nice combination of lightly-toasted bread and very mild caramel along with a touch of sweetness and light hops. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; fairly chewy. Refreshing bitterness on the back-end. Good brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright fiery brown color with a smallish taupe colored head. Caramel aromas with a accent of darker toasted malts. HInts of floral hops as well. Sweet toasty flavors mix with a mild caramel and light honey taste. Quite roasty and toasty in the finish. A rather simple brew, a touch sweet more like a toasty amber.

Bottle. Pours pretty flat. Copper. Sweet aroma with malt, chocolate and spiced brown sugar. Flavour seems flat. Thin with notes from the scent and a eucalyptus edge.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweetish dark malt aroma, without molasses. Woody, musty malting. Initially seems drier than it finishes out. Rather simple. Finishes sweet with a medium-light bitterness. Medium mouth.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 If pious means sacred or majestic, then this ain’t pious. However, a dark lager with a sweet aroma. Pretty brown but not dark brown in my steelers mug. OK flavor with a little syrup feel to it. Has a bitter finish but is not lasting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a hazy dark amber color with a thin off-white head. Sweet and roasty malt aroma. Dark fruits and chocolate run underneath with a hint of smoke and raisins. The flavor started with toasted malt, toffee and some fruitiness. Notes of golden raisins and light chocolate at the tail. Semi-dry finish with a mild bitterness. The mouthfeel was lively and acidic.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber color. Chocolatey, very malty, a touch of cherry cough syrup. Not bad, but fairly average all around.
