3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very dark brown color with a small khaki head. Aromas are kind of light and consist of roasted nuts and dark chocolate. Flavors are more of the same but with some breadiness mixed in there. Finishes slightly bitter and the body is a bit watery and thin. A decent but forgettable beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Reilly’s Taphouse. It’s a nice looking dark ale. It has a nice malt aroma with hints of chocolate. The flavor is malt, caramel, coffee & chocolate. A good body & a nice creamy mouth feel. Solid.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught@ Craftworks Taphouse & Bistro. Hazy brown coloured beer with no carbonation and a small off white head. Rather light aroma. Medium rather sweet palate. FInish is sweet short malty bitter but actually misses taste. No real character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 liter Growler thanks to SHIG, pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is nutty with tart cherry and cranberry notes. Flavor is toast, light roast and a mellow tartness that I don’t believe is intentional but is nice. Like a traditional sour Porter.
