3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle a burnt copper with a satisfying slowly fading off-white head. Aroma is malty with a hint of clove. Mouth feel is medium, carbonation is medium, and flavor is sweet carmel, toffee, and smoky malt. A little on the sweeter side, but I have a sweet tooth so no problem there. Carmel slowly fades away to a touch of bitter hops. Very enjoyable beverage!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Douglasville, GA
Aroma- Has a pretty good aroma of malt and sweet spice.
Appearance- This is a dark brown beer with a small off-white head.
Taste-the main flavor is malt with some sweet caramel flavoring tossed in.
Palate- this is a light bodied and lightly carbonated beer
Overall- I believe I have had this years ago but I remember it tasting different. I then read other comments saying it was now brewed under contract. That makes sense on why it tastes different. I thought it tasted better in the past, but not a bad beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, dark amber with reddish highlights and a light tan head of good size that slowly fades. Nose of sweet malt and a little toast. Taste is sweet caramel malt, a hint of black coffee and some light, grassy hops. Not overly complex, more like a lager than a schwarzbier. Not bad. Pleasant and easy to drink.
