4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle served in snifter- served an almost transparent very darkened brown with hints of ruby shading, solid foamy off tan head formed, laced- soft, yet firm, like booty. Thick aroma of raisons, plums, dark caramel, slightly roasted malt, with hops trying to make itself know amongst the crowd. Hits the mouth with wide and lucious body, malt was slightly sweetened but seems to be cut with chocolate, middle holds up fine, finish winks at you wanting to you try more. I don’t see what’s so offensive about the label- perhaps it’s for the snots that don’t know how to use their equipment- 2 minute miracle men and "layers" combined. Being in several interracial relationships during the course of my life, one was one of the best lovers I ever had. Almost 10 years after those times, I still get a smile about some of the stuff we did... DAMN it’s hot in here... thanks for the memories, and damn good beer!!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown beer, good head. Aroma is deeply roasted malt - chocolate. Taste is more smooth malt with some pine hops behind that, which blends into plenty of bitterness. A better brown ale than mostl.
