3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lots of creamy off white foam ride on top of this almost black, garnet tinged dark brown beer.
Brown sugar aroma.
Heavy sweet caramel/brown sugar flavor. Liquid Sugar Babies.
Slightly over carbonated. Too sweet and one dimensional for me, but this is an easy drinking beer than undeveloped palate would probably find quite enjoyable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark brown color with a thick brown head. Aroma is of dark furits, sweet malts, and maybe a little hops, but not much. Flavor is the same, Not really that excited about this brew. Not really sure why people are rating it that high, there are a very large number of beers I would buy over this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle a deep brown with a slight reddish tint and a small tan head. Aroma was of roasted malts and hops. Flavor was roasted (almost burnt) malts with a good hop finish (coffee like) as the beer comes up in tempature turns more towards a bitter chocolate. Overall not a bad brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice reddish-brown body. Pleasant aroma with a uniquely delicious nut-brown ale taste. Hop finish that was not overpowering, but heavily prevalent. Caramel flavors were also present. I was pleasantly suprised with this one.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very dark brown in color, just some red, with a thick, tan head. Aroma is milk, chocolate powder, caramel, and a nice, warm nuttiness. Flavor is not as good as the aroma. It is unidimensional and there is a chalky, hardwater character that distracts from the palate and flavor profile. Softer water could make this exceptional.
