Pours dark mahogany. Aroma of dark fruit, a little chocolate. Taste is wintery but without spice, slight coffee notes, dark dry fruits, fig. The palate is medium but towards the full side, a little creamy. Overall a nice winter brew. Smooth and enjoyable. Worth checking out.

Flavorful lager with notes of coffee and chocolate. Your mouth won’t insist there’s any actual coffee or chocolate in it, as the label claims it will (You can tell there isn’t), but there are definitely what we’d refer to in beer terms as chocolate and coffee notes that would be hard to miss. I prefer when brewer’s create tastes with basic beer ingredients instead of adding adjuncts anyhow (Yes, coffee and chocolate count as adjuncts). Good beer that achieves seasonal taste with malts and brewing technique versus tossing sugar, spices, coco, etc. into the brewing vat.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Full Sail LTD 06 has a thick, cream-colored head, a dark, red-brown, clear (not hazy), bubbly appearance, with significant lacing left behind. The aroma is of deep and dark-roasted barley malt, sugar, and brown bread crust. Taste is of dark-roasted barley malt, sweetness, and a bit of bitterness at the end. I do not taste coffee or chocolate, and I do not detect any alcohol with this one. Mouthfeel is medium, and Full Sail LTD 06 finishes mostly wet, refreshing, easy drinking, smooth, and very delicious. RJT

Pours dark chestnut brown with a medium tan creamy head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, notes of plum, roasty malt, mild cacao and espresso like bitterness. Taste the same as aroma. Palate is a medium body, rich and creamy with good carbonation and slightly sticky mouth feel. The finish is sweet sticky caramel malt, dark fruit, a nice chocolate and roasted espresso bitterness in the end for balance. A very rich and full flavored brew. Overall a good flavorful and tasty brew for the holidays.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: clear to light haze. Dark brown with tan head. Roasted, cocoa, coffee, dry fruit and toast. Malt driven and dark. Dry to off dry. Low bitterness to medium low. Maybe phenolic not bitter. Slight sour not that provides freshness not spoilage. Mocha, chocolate, coffee, malty and dates. Dense and long. Lovely texture. Probably the best beer I’ve tasted from Full Sail to date. Balanced.
