2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Vineous berrylike roasted aroma. Dark red brown, low lace. medium light, slightly tinny body. Roast base, light herbal and spicy - lavender and berries. Quick somewhat watery finish. Nice aroma, a bit disappointing after that.

Nice near-black colour, bust tastes like stewed swiss chard. Don’t know if it is a bottle infection or just the beer, but I am not enjoying this...

Reddish-brown, vaguely nutty aroma, light body, thin, little nutty but the thinness is overwhelming anything else.

On tap at Grizzly Paw Brewing, pours a clear amber with a small tan head. Aroma brings out spoiled vegetables. Flavour is slightly better, with notes of toasted nuts and slightly cloying caramel. Not the most refined nut brown, with too much residual sweetness. It’s okay, but very flawed.

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours a thin dark brown with a small white ring. Aroma is nutty, light butterscotch. Taste is thin body, butterscotch and nut. It says well hopped, I would disagree.

65 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada. Cola appearance. Thin head. Faint brown sugar aroma. Metallic flavour, then sweet caramel and more metal on the finish. Lighter body than expected.
