Draft pour at Fat Heads. Pours a hazy amber with a beige head of foam. The aroma is malty and musky with an earthy note to it. Tastes sweet and earthy.Nice for the style in particular.

Tap at Fat Heads 1 Aug 13, a dark malty chewy smoky lightly peaty fireside drink if Iíve had one, minimal head formed on this, and just a peaty smoky flavor abounds.. though not dominant just lingering in the finish.

On tap @ the brew pub, scotch ale version: Chestnut brown beer with a lasting off white head. Nice caramel and toasted clean malt aroma; dominated by caramel. Just a hint of alcohol as well. Very light touches of roast mingle in and out. Also some melanoidins which add a touch of perceived dark fruitiness. Caramel and clean malt flavor, sweet up front but well balanced with a drier finish. Some hints of roast in the finish as it warms. Alcohol is well hidden, and very drinkable for a 7% abv beer. Medium body with a medium level of carbonation. I may have to come back for a growler of this!

Having heard good things about Fat Headís I made my way here on a quiet afternoon before the dinner rush. They were out of the Blonde that I wanted first so this was my first taste of the house beers. If the rest of the taps are like this they have a promising future in the Cleveland market.

Aroma / Appearance - Cereal grain, light hops, and a dryness emerge from the cloudy amber body. Standard for the style I have nothing much to say other than they did it right.

Flavor / Palate - Fluid, creamy, and with only a trace of hops it goes down smoothly. The bitter aftertaste is not enough to keep it from falling into the session category. The only objection might be price if you feel $5.00 is too much for a run of the mill beer.

Sample at the brewery. Pour is clear amber color with off white head. Aroma is mostly caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is a caramel malt lovers dream. This really tastes like a high end caramel treat. Tasty!
