3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Hickory Hops Festival 2012, it pours dark with a nice settled head. The nose is of roasted coffee and grains. Flavors are dry, with caramel malt adding a touch of sweetness. The finish is toasty, crisp and curt. The mouthfeel is dry, with integrated carbonation. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated at Brew Bern 2012. This has a gorgeous dark brown color that is much darker than it tastes or feels. It actually came out very light and easy to drink.
