The pour is a dark brown with a white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is toffee heavy with some malt note standing out. The taste is light and creamy up front with the rye standing out in somewhat of a bitter ending.

Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, light dark fruity esters and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looked great! Poured a brilliant, mahogany brown and produced a creamy, 1.5 inch tan head, that slowly subsided. Some decent malt in the nose and suggestions of hops. Faint hints of cocoa and spice? Medium-light body. Surprisingly short! Some lingering bitter notes. Not much malt on the palate. Light, fresh, and mild. Not as dark as expected. Some lace develops. When looking for a Mild Ale, I will look elsewhere next time.

Mediocre toffee colored pour. Tastes like it looks, which is simple and forgettable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a dark amber and gives more of a dark black to brown body. An inch of white foamy head appears and dies to a half centimeter while leaving some nice speckled lacing coating the upper part of the pint glass. The smell has caramel and fruit up front with a bit of nuts in the background. The taste is the same adding a bit of breadiness to it. The mouthfeel is light to medium with a dry finish. This is a very drinkable beer. Overall, this is a solid beer for its style, but just mediocre to me.
