3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro at Tony’s Darts Away. Pours dark ruby red with a creamy white head that lasted all the way down. Aroma is nutty, roasted grain and pumpernickel bread. Flavor is somewhere between an English mild and a brown ale, roasted malt, bread and hazel nuts. Finish is malty and slightly bitter at the very end. This is a very nice beer! Oh and it’s about time someone had the balls to brew a nice session beer. High five Eagle Rock!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
