3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours clear dark brown with thin head. Aroma big caramel/sweet choco/coffee. Flavor driven by medium foamy body, sweet, choco and syrupy smooth. Sweetness mellows in a well behaved way to a smooth even aftertaste. Overall this is too sweet a beer for me/ but does not lack character.

Poured from fresh growler. Smell is of alcohol and raisins. Nice clear auburn color. Taste is malt heavy with sweet dark fruit and raisins. This stuff has an extremely strong alcohol taste for only.being 8%. Sweet sticky mouthfeel. A bit disappointing.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 Bottle pours a dark brown with a light white head. The aroma is quite malty. The taste is full bodied with a wet finish. I get all sorts of malt, and some Belgian wheat. Overall a rich beer.
