2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ FBGBF ’10.
Pours amber, off-white head.
aroma, roasted malts, dry malts, mild nose of caramel.
flavors, nice roasted malts is a little hindered by the hoppy side that seems to be a little too high, med-high carb, simple roast/pale malts.
Not a bad brown, just a tad boring.

Not too bad, but nothing really great. The appearance is soft brown with a light white foam head. The aroma and taste is that of roasted nuts with hints of hops.

12 oz. bottle aquired in trade from Daknole- oh yeah, my fav. style! Served in shaker- poured a transparent brown color, thin white head formed and raised some hell. Light aroma of caramel and malt. Hits the mouth with low-medium body, malt has a touch of caramel, holds up in the middle, finish has some light lingering nut sensation along with a few hops. Good sessioner.

Overall not terrible. Pours brown with thin whitish tan head. Aromas of a homebrew and some caramel. Flavors of nutty hops. Ok not worth going out of the way for.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy of daknole, thanks man. Pours a clear light brown, a little like rootbeer, with a medium tanned beige head. Aromas of toasted malt, grain, and burnt nuts. A bit thin, some roast malt, a slight bit of acrid graininess. Finishes with a light bitter. Tough to finish.

12oz bottle, no date from daknole. Copper orange with a one finger yellow beige head. Aroma of sweet malts and caramel malts, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is a little more metallic, otherwise the same. not really picking up on any toasted malts or nuttiness. Bitterness peaked at a 2. Thin watery body with light fizzy carbonation. Meh.
