Draft at EGG pub.Hazy brown/red pour with a brown head. Very faint aroma, some vague dark fruits. Taste is very thin, almost nothing jumping out. Some drawn out molasses flavor is there but not very strong. thin palate, but even thinner than the style would dictate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at DuClaw in Bowie, MD.
The beer is orange hued with subtle copper highlights. The head is thin and off white hued, leaving sparse lacing on the glass.
The aroma consists mainly of butterscotch candies, followed by light toffee, fruit, malt, alcohol.
The flavor is decent. Slightly sweet throughout, with butterscotch candies again playing a big role. I happen to like butterscotch quite a bit, so perhaps I am bothered by this less than most.
Lighter in body than I would have thought, with some fruity malt esters lingering in the back.
Overall, this was ok. Worth a try.
Serving type: on-tap

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a nice and thick beer that had a nice mouthfeel but not too much in the body. Interesting hop profile, enjoyable.
