3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft… Hazy, dark, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Chocolaty, nutty aroma. Medium to full-bodied and mildly creamy with moderate carbonation. Although perfectly balanced, the flavor is thin and boring; nutty and minerally. Roasted, lightly bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at OTH. It pours brown with copper edges and thin frumpy tan head. The aroma comes across sweet with a touch of caramel then roasted to burnt malts. The taste is much the same with caramel and modest roasty and burnt malts. The caramel note rises into the finish with a bit of dark roasted coffee. Nice stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasted nuts, chocolate, and some coffee aroma. Brown to dark brown pour, some foam, not a lot. Roast, nuts, coffee and light chocolate undertones. Rather straightforward. Dry finish. Body is a bit on the thin side. Almost one dimensional, but very drinkable.
