Shared a bottle with 3 others. Nice reddish brown color. Tastes a bit like a Heath bar, only not as sweet or chocolatey.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby red color with a cream colored head leaving spotty lacing around the glass. Toffee, brown sugar, malted milk balls in the nose. Malted milk balls up front followed by toffee in the finish, only a bit of hop presence. Average carbonation and medium bodied. Wasn’t very drinkable, split the bottle. Perhaps I will try it again to see if I got a bad bottle or if I will like it better.

Liquid GHB, clear your schedule if you plan to drink more than one or two. Im not a lightweight just something about this beer knocks you out.

Really beautiful pour- brown with amber highlights and two fingers of tan head. Strong grainy aroma with notes of smoke, peat, caramel, and molasses. Flavor is also grain and peat, with hints of sweet caramel, floral hops, strawberry, and some nice nuttiness and smoke in the finish. Thick sticky palate.
