3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a deep brown color with some amber highlights and a small off-white head that leaves a sheet of lace in the glass that settles into a film and ring. The aroma is too sweet, led by chocolate and cream. The flavor is earthier, with toasted malts, tobacco, and light roast in addition to the sweeter chocolate notes. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, toasty, earthy mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark mahogany with a good tan head cover, a couple of dots of lace. Taste is strong, slightly bitter malt that moves uneventfully through the palate to a finish that is already bitter enough to balance. Certainly a one note beer. A little strong for sessions, a little bland for more serious drinking.

On tap came out a hazy medium to dark brown with little head. Taste is mostly malt and chocolate with a bit of alcohol twang at the finish. Not unpleasant but in need of refinement.
