joeneugs (4305) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 3, 2014
On tap at the Faction Ales for ALS festival. It pours a dark brown/black color with a tan head. The aroma is nice and balanced with some bread, roasted malt, cocoa and light notes of fig and raisin. The flavor has big roast, a little anise and burnt toast. Mildly acidic and light bodied. A nice mild ale, but a bit too acidic for me.

tgncc (3020) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Roasted, toasted malts on the nose. The appearance is deep brown, reddish hue, off white head. The flavor is Raosty, burnt caramel, toasted malt, brown sugar. Sweet, yet, roasty. The finish is roasty, bitter. A bit light in body, watery. Not bad. Decent for the style.

22oz from Whole Foods , I think Whole foods pours brown tan head, aroma of almond and pecans. Light body but good beer and good carbonation.
