I like this. It’s not the best every but certainly good. There are a lot of solid things going on here: aroma has a rich malt and toffee character, the taste is toffee sweet and balanced, and the finish is good too. I’m usually not a big fan of Fort Collins Brewery stuff but this one is pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99 (6/2011, notes). Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is fruity and floral with quite a bit of caramel candy like sweetness. The flavor opens fruity, lightly floral with sweet caramel. The finish is almost non existent. Mild bitterness to the finish. This is a tick.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear and rather bubbly chestnut with a nice fine-bubbled light tan head. Aroma has caramel, sweet malt and subtle woody notes. Flavor has a woody core that supports caramel, malty, cinnamon and bready tones. Firm, smooth texture has good fizz and leaves a tasty, cinnamon-toast finish. Get this goat!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Deeper gold than the helles bock. Nose shows rich malts and toast, earthy with a cocoa hint. On tasting, much drier and cleaner than its companion. Drying finish. Still medium sweet overall but nice malt backbone and bitter enough to balance.
