3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler to snifter (shared by Tmoney99). Looks solid; a semi-transparent brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells malty with notes of caramel and toffee. Tastes like it smells, only more subdued. Average on the palate. Decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at the brewpub. Wow. Tastes and smells like a schnickerdoodle. Pretty original. Medium body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. More dry texture. Dark hazy brown / amber color. Minimal white head, few dots of lace. Some light spruce, toasted malts. Mild bitter taste. Interesting, impressive stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate toasted resin spruce aroma. Medium body with a smooth slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate spruce toasted bittersweet flavor with with a moderate bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a change of pace beer.
