3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with aroma of hops. Sweet and malty flavor followed by a bitter hoppy finish. Nothing all that remarkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark, hazy caramel with moderate head that dissipates over time. Light aroma that intensified as this beer warmed a bit - roasty malt and slightly sweet. Full bodied with light carbonation. Roasted malt flavor with a bit of sweetness. Not my favorite style or beer, but glad I tried it. Good sipping beer and would probably not drink more than one in a night.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a malty fan but can still chive this beer credit that it has great flavor. Just a bit heavier than I normally like.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I can’t speak to the style, but this is one delicious beer. First had on tap then bought a six-pack. Tastes like a stout with pronounced coffee, but with a lot of complexity and layers of flavor, including date and chocolate. Full bodied with great mouthfeel. Good stuff.
