UPDATED: JUL 2, 2012 Pours dark copper with good head and lacing. Smell is a nice blend of caramel, toffee, and a bit of roasty cocoa. Taste has some nice tangy malts and breadiness. Aftertaste is a bit of bitter hops that fade after a minute or two. Pleasantly surprised by this one - solid brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep brown bronzish with a beige head. The aroma has roasty caramel malt, some bread, dryish brown sugar, light earthiness and an overall pleasantness. Medium body with light crispness, and somewhat mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with a dry version of the aroma traits with some mineral aspects and paperiness. The finish is more of the same. Nice beer, but it is a touch heavy on the mineral aspects for me.
