4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle from Sparky, thanks again E!) Pours out a semi-clear reddish brown color with a towering cream colored head that settles to a nice medium cap with a lot of lacing. Really enjoyed being greeted with toasted grain, roasted nuts, cocoa (Co-Co Krispies cereal to be exact), and musty lager yeast. Not much else beyond that, but there doesn’t need to be when it’s this good. Somewhat reminiscent of a brown ale. Shades of Fitger’s Beaver Bay. Flavor doesn’t disappoint, with tastes of cocoa, toasted almonds, faint caramel sweetness, and toasted cereal grains on the finish which gently continues for quite some time. Mouthfeel is nothing short of perfect. Holy hell this is good.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear brown/reddish beer. The foam unfortunately dissappears quite quickly. The best aspect of this beer is its aroma: a really good malty character. The taste is a bit disappointing and pales to insignificance compared to the aroma. The aftertaste is nice though and contains a sweetish bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance is lacking on this, as it poured with foamy head that faded very fast. Color is of murky cola. Aroma is malt, nuts, brown sugar. Taste is sweet, malt, nuts. Overall mouthfeel seems watery and sweetness is the most notable lingering flavor
