3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled this on draft at the Phoenixville location. The beer poured a brown color with quite a bit of brown sugar and whiskey in the aroma. The flavors were fairly sweet, with some more hints of brown sugar, maple syrup, nuts and roasted caramel malt. The finish contained a lot of alcohol and whiskey notes. This beer almost tastes like a carbonated and creamy version of Jack Daniels.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at IH Phoenixville. Poured hazy dark brown with khaki head. Nose was vienna malty, with walnut, maple syrup, and cacao. Tasted rich and complex, with a nice malt up front, the maple syrup, cacao, and nuts kicking in shortly afterward, and an earthy and nutty finish. The term imperial nut brown ale is apropos for this one, and I enjoyed it immensely.
