3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 16 oz. can at Lions game. Appearance, aroma, and flavor is overwhelmingly of strong caramel malts. That is the primary flavor. Also some roasted notes and slightly sweet fruitiness to the finish. Pretty solid amber ale.

Tap sample. Poured clear dark ruby hue with medium frothy white head that lasted with very good lacing. Medium aroma of earthy hops and malt. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor of malt and hops with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2015 On tap, poured into a sample glass. The aroma is mostly caramel and caramel apple with some hints of cherry, dark chocolate, and a light citrus. It pours a deep, rich copper red - amber color. The slightly off-white head is dense and reduces to a good ring with a thin, cloudy island. It leaves an abundant, web lace. The taste is a nicely blended medium sweet and light bitter. There’s lots of soft, fuzzy carbonation. The oily and sticky texture has a full / medium malty body with caramel, nuts, and cherry like fruit notes. It finishes with a caramel, burnt toast, light citrus and dark chocolate combination, which eventually turns to primarily dark chocolate and cherry. These two flavors linger in the aftertaste with bread crust characteristics.
