2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice looking--dark brown, with a sizeable off-white head that leaves a goodly lace. Aroma, however, is rather unpleasant, buttery, with some thin carob notes, and a metallic twang. Flavor is relatively thin, unpleasantly buttery, with some carob or cheap nougat notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I got a single 1pt., 9oz bottle from Everett’s in South Beloit, IL for $2.29 in October 2012.
Pours a very dark brown with a slight off-white head. There is a mild scent of hops and malts but nothing too strong. The taste is ever so slightly heavy in taste but not by much. There is a decent combination of hops, malts, and yeast to make a dark beer that drinks fairly easy. Although it drinks well, it really could use some work in flavor department as the taste is kind of bland. For a small city, this was a rather interesting find.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark brown color, small off-white head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts. Thin body, a bit creamy. Soft carbonation. Not bad, but I thin score of 99 in style is a little bit too much.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.
