3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Widmer: Deep amber, moreso ruby, moderate foamy light beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose,
slight caramel malts.   Sweet malty amber up front, roasted malts show up halfway through and linger through the finish.   Clean,
easy drinking.   Body and mouthfeel are a solid moderate.   Big hefty roasty amber... I like it!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Horse Brass Pub in Portland. Pours a very dark mahogany, almost black with a small tan head. Aroma is lightly roasty, slightly fruity, with a floral hop backing. This brew was a bit watery and thin on the palate, I was hoping for a bit more malty thickness to it. Slight caramel malt start with a big bland bitterness to finish it off.
