3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at brewpub: Hazy redish amber colored body with a small, creamy beige head that has nice retention. The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, toasted malt, and hints of dark toasted bread. The taste is earthy caramel, toasted malt, lightly burnt toast, and what seems to be a bit of a house yeast character - earthy, very slightly salty yeast (I like it). Light-medium bodied, medium carbonated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark reddish amber, light tan creamy head. The nose was roasty and toasty, nutty, some caramel, with a touch of chocolate. More roasted malt to start, then backed up nice with a slight hop bitterness for decent balance. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, roasty, lightly bittered finish. Not my thing, but could be used for a newbie crossover beer...
