3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Barley Knoxville. A dark brown/amber pour. A taste of roasted malt and a slight warmness. A sweetness in the taste with a wisp of bitter. Good carbonation and palate. Maybe I enjoyed this beer because it was my first of the day, but I enjoyed it and was surprised at the difference in my rating and the score. What the hell I liked it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 Re-rate... my previous rating from 7 Nov 2005 was 6/3/6/3/12... Itís been almost a year since Iíve had this, and this is obviously a different, and better, batch. Pours brilliant red with dense khaki head. The aroma is berries, smoke, some caramel and chocolate, and bagels. The flavor has a lot of cherries, toast, and faint caramel, with a somewhat smoky finish and a level malty aftertaste. There is some ambient tang from the hops, and chocolate becomes more noticeable farther down the glass. I enjoyed this much more on this go-around. Iím bumping it up a few points.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
on draught. Dark ruby pour, no head. The aroma is faint, just a touch of non-descript malts. The flavor is also malty with a hint of wood in the back, maybe some apple peels. The finish is just barely dry. This is drinkable, but nothing extraordinary.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I didnít get much out of this beer. The aroma did have something grainy going on but, not that much. The taste was forgetable, I didnít pick much out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, with thin tan head. Huge malty, bready, veggie aroma. Very smooth, rich palate. Hints of coffee in an earthy, smoky finish. Not bad. Sampled at the 2005 Music Ciry Brewerís Fest.
