2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2013 draft. cola brown with a small tan head. mildly toast roast and dark caramel malt, a tad rough, husky and unrefined, with a starchy and dry oatmeal / graham cracker quality. carbonation is a bit fizzy and malt is a tad too rough, but otherwise it comes across as toasty, nutty and spiced, leaning to the sweet side.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Freshcraft in Denver, pour is dark brownish black with off white almost tan head, aroma brings notes of big cookie, graham, vanilla, and milk chocolate notes, hints of bitter roast and earthy notes as well. Taste is bordering on artificial, but a sweet graham and cookie like malt up front leads into some vanilla and caramel notes, touch of roasted chocolate, finishes fairly sweet. Well made, but a bit too sweet.
