Dark copper color with a medium off-white head. Toasty caramel malt taste with some citrus/floral hops. Flavor is a nice malty mix of caramel, grains, and citrus-grass hop flavor. Smooth and tasty. Nice job with the name as well.

Bad Santa...Newark. Pour was a clean brown body with a small but foamy beige head. Aroma was toasted malts, some sugar, and a little nutty. Flavors were toast, carmel, mild berries and nuts, and a little coffee. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled and brewed at Newark, DE location. Dark brown, nutty, toffeeish. Full malt flavours are certainly on the rich side for the style, but balanced off well by their own liquoricey components and a healthy dose of background hops.
