3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 I have had this one several times at the Monroeville PA location. Draft only this beer pours a chestnut color with only a very small white head. The aroma is malty and has a bit of an alcohol burn to it. The flavor is strong in alcohol burn on the front then mellow out to a nice malty, almost herby and hoppy finish. I think if the alcohol were less noticeable I could really get into this one, but every time I take a sip it reminds me of bourbon. While I happen to like bourbon, it is not what I am looking for in a beer.
