Pours a very dark amber, perhaps brown, with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, bready, and some chocolate. Taste is lighter, and isn’t to bad. Very malty with the above noted flavors from the aroma. Kind of earthy as well. Some carbonation, but altogether smooth. Nothing of not really stands out.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pours garnet brown with foamy light tan head. Smell is moderately roasted chocolate malt, pretty grainy. Taste is similar but smooth, subtle creamy palate with grainy fruity sweetness that lingers. Some apple and dark fruit come through the bright carbonation that is perfect to expand the flavor. The end is slightly grain bitter but with a caramel like sweetness that sticks to the front of my tongue. Good brew overall.

A lovely deep reddish-brown color with thin to no head. Chocolate/coffee aromas. Flavor is a nice mix of sweet and bitter. Palate a bit on the thin side with a nice finish to it. Interesting beer that is definitely worth a try.
