Can from Errl. Deep amber-brown color with big fluffy off-white head. The scent has caramel, toasted grain, and nutty notes. Smooth; some dried mixed fruit flavor joins chocolate, roasted malty notes, lightly bitter earthy hops, and nuts. Seems bigger than it is. Pretty solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can thanks to Errl. Thanks for the Alt tick! Pours a cloudy brown color with a large, beige head of foam. Aroma has a nice, thick, malty nutty roasty note. Sweet. Taste has that roast nutty sweetness with a faint, dry bitter finish. Lighter on the palate. Good thirst quenching beer. It would be a nice summer porch beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured up a dark brown with a decent tan head. Smells and tastes of some caramel malts with some hints of chocolate. Decent brew but while the brewery is doing it’s part on recycling (since in Texas it is rare to find anyone that will take glass for recycle) not a fan of the can. Only good part about cans is once it is in a coozy it is hard to tell that I am drinking a brew in public.
