3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at GABF 2011. Dark hazy brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, toffee. Lots of mild bitterness in the aroma. Flavor is nearly unbeatable for a mile. Lots of caramel, toffee, some nuts. It nearly tastes like a turtle (the candy, not the animal. I had turtles as a kid and am still not comfortable eating them). Very dry and smooth. This is a beer I’d love to just drink for a while. Medium bodied, typical carbonation, so it’s very easy to drink. I liked this one.

On tap at Hawthornes. Just clear rusty brown with beige froth. Nose is coffee, maple and hay. Medium body with barely discernable carb. Taste is watery coffee and grain with a touch of molasses.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The appearasnce is a hazy dark red/brown, small head. The aroma is toasted malts, tea leaves. The flavor is malty, toasted, tea. The finish has a weak, vanishing hop bitterness. The body is on the thin side of medium. Not bad. Nice to try a vanishing style like this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Mellow Mushroom, Winter Park. Hey nice. Dark brown color, modest head. Aroma is a little toffee caramel, touch nutty. Flavor similar, creamy mouthfeel, moderate hop bitterness at the finish. Well balanced quaffer, great with food. Only dislike is the choice hops, tasted a little woody and mushroomy. But the creamy rounded feel of the malts kept me distracted and satisfied.

15 cl test på Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, Florida. Nötighet och fruktighet, så kan jag väl bäst beskriva detta öl, som i all sin tämliga anonymitet ändå är helt okey.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Light to moderate malt notes of toasted, cocoa and nuts, light herbs and dough for the hops and yeast, with hints of toffee and dried fruit. Head is small, fizzy off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear brown. Flavor starts lightly acidic and finishes the same with just a touch of bitterness. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. A very easy drinking beer with some good qualities, but with a Mild Ale there’s just not a whole lot of anything.

On tap at WOB Port Orange. It had been a long Thanksgiving and thank god WOB was open that day. This was a brownish color with very little head. I didn’t really know what to make of the aroma or flavor. It was sort of dry with hints of roasted nuts. To me this was just sort of a bland and didn’t really excite me, perhaps it was just the style
