3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A ruby-amber pour with some small white-head and decent lacing. A nice caramel toffee smell. Had a slick feel to this medium bodied beer. Slightly sweet with its roasted malts tasting, and I found a bit of smokeyness as well. A good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 On tap at Dragonmead; pour is frothy beige, with both fine and large bubbled character present. This brew retains fairly well. On the nose; caramel malt sweetness, coupled with smoke and dark fruit. On the tongue; there is a bitterness present. Its sweet and smoky, and fruity as well. Its also a bit light bodied, in a negative way. Plums, caramel, peat, and english hops sums it up

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up on tap at the Dragonmead brewpub with deep amber body and off white head. The mild aroma offers up some cherries, a light amount of caramel and a sense of earthiness. The taste is pretty rich with reduced plum juice, ripe cherries, prunes and raisins as well as caramel followed by a pleasing sense of mineral earthiness.
