3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The can was amazingly carbonated, but that could easily have been our fault. Eventually the beer appears under the massive off-white head and is brown in color.
S: There is an underlying green apple note to the beer which sort of mars the experience, but otherwise the nose is good. Chocolate and nutty malts with a nice toffee note to it. Plenty of bread and just a bit of roast.
T: The flavor is similarly affected by the green apple, but the rich maltiness and chocolate flavors are quite good. A touch of roast and coffee, and a really pleasant nuttiness.
M: Medium to full in body with a moderate carbonation.
O: My first beer from Alabama and it was a good one. I look forward to trying more from these guys.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355mL can thanks to blutt59. Pours a hazy, murky deep amber to brown with a towering, yellowish head. Very nice retention and suddy lace. Looks great. Towering root beer float head. Pretty much permanent head. Wow. Nose at first is a little detergent heavy, lemon soap, muted rustic malt. Moves very nicely to amaretto and pound cake. Taste up front is pretty damn tart and mildly acidic. Long lemon juice finish. Not sure what happened here. Palate is both very harsh and buttery/slick.

Can pour courtesy of Jeremy. Pours dark copper with explosive tan head. The aroma has mild notes of cherries and lemon. The taste seems improved over what the nose was delivering with some malts, roasted malts, a touch of nuttiness and some faint earthiness too. It ends with some acidity and a lemon/lime like quality.
