Shared with Travlr, on tap. Dark amber color with minimum white head. Smells sweet, nice. Hazelnut flavors jump out in the first moments on the tongue, followed by caramel and sugar. It does seem a bit thin/watery though. Average

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2011 (Draft @ BWI location) Served in a shaker. Tea-brown body, slightly hazy with two fingers of biscuit head that donít last too long. Aroma of toffee and caramel, perhaps some chocolate. Mouthfeel smooth and lightly prickly. Flavor of toasted caramel with other notes of chocolate, tar, toffee and licorice. Tasty, interesting example of the style. UPDATE: 1/1/11 Not as impressed this time around. Same notes but more bland, wooden and watery. Score is an average of the two ratings.
