3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: toasty malts, a good dose of roast malts and coffee, really a mix of dry stout and mild in the nose. Pours black, almost opaque, but some light can get through around the edges and cast light reddish hues, off-white head dissipates somewhat quickly, spotty lacing. Flavor: nice and bready/toasty, mellow roast character, light bitterness, dry finish. Medium body, low-medium carbonation. Very easy drinking and enjoyable brew, nice!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(En fût à Glendale Tap): Première pinte dans ce qui semble être le O’Brien’s de Glendale, très homy disons. Le liquide est superbe avec une mousse qui colle et persiste. En bouche c’est gracieux, amplement moelleux et sec au bon moment. Mélasse, noisettes, canneberges et coco composent principalement le profil. Superbe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Tasting paddle. this is one of the few non-homebrew milds I’ve had. Great roastiness but clean ferment, almost like a schwarzbier at first, but has some english yeast notes as it sits. Nitro is great for first minute or two then gets a bit flat.
