Draft at Cedar Point. Pours a deep, murky reddish brown with small white head that quickly dissipates and some light lace. Nose of caramel, dark fruit, light roasted malt. Medium body, some hop bitterness but no good hop flavors. Malt bomb - caramel and roast with a bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy amber color. It has decent head retention and excellent lacing. Tastes of malt and hops with a background hit of honey. A decent beer but nothing to write home over.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is doughy with strong caramel and light spice, citrus and tropical leaning fruit, low level of pine, but mostly that sweet, lovely cookie dough character that pulls every last inch of complexity out of the hops. Pours mostly amber with some golden and copper, a dense beige head. Fullish body, boozy but not burny, lots of alcohol present but itís somewhat smooth; very sweet without cloying out the lights, medium bitterness but not nearly enough to balance. There is some malt complexity in the caramel and toffee, thin citrus and mild paint thinner. All in all, goes down easy despite the flaws and is enjoyable despite the heavy middle and dull finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I love what Free Will has been putting out, but this does not impress. Entirely too malt heavy with faint hoppiness. Donít get me wrong, there is bitterness, but nothing distinct.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Intensely complex is right. So many dimensions to this one...I donít know where to go first. Primarily, it is hoppy. Earthy, fruity, maybe slightly toasted. No. It is definitely burnt. Love that. A subtle chocolate/toffee touch takes this beaut to another level. A certain caramel sweetness gives it good balance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Spirits Rt 166. Poured an unimpressive dirty orange brown body under a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma is sweet wort, caramel, toffee, raisins, breads, very light citrus. Medeium body, chalky, lingering aftertaste, nice carbonation. Flavor is better than the aroma. Notes of dirty citrus, lemony, tropical fruit rinds, some rotting fruit, bad bread.
