4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Darkish amber with big tan foam. Aroma is chocolate, butterscotch, citrus and sweet dark dried fruit. Taste is similar to the aroma;chocolate, caramel, butterscotch and piney and citrusy hops. Mainly a sweet beer but with a nice citrusy bitter aftertaste. Full body, creamy and sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish that gets a tad astringent at the end. A little alcoholic is noticable but not disturbing and only adding to flavor complexity. Overall; I like this a lot, malty , citrusy and the way I love my american beers

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled on Jan 05, 2015.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance has a ruddy brown color with a one finger white foamy head.
It dissipated nicely leaving some nice stringy sticky lacing.
The smell had a decent chocolate maltiness and a light coffee aroma.
The taste was sweet and roasty through the malts. A light rolling roasty chocolate/coffee aftertaste leads into a sticky sweet/roasty finish.
On the palate, this sat about a medium on the body. I’d say a good sipper but the alcohol isn’t felt.
Overall, I’d say this was a good old ale for the style and for me.
