3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very handsome, crystal clear, copper ale. Large, very thick, creamy white head. Excellent, creamy, very full lacework. Leaves behind the same lacing that heavy cream leaves on the side of a dairy bottle. Sort of thin, but the aroma and flavor have some nice, faint notes of caramel and toasted nuts. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, lightly bitter, very dry finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at the JH in Harvard Square, Cambridge. Near-opaque dark walnut with beautiful lace promises much more than it delivers in the nutty, ashy cigarette-laden harsh but vaguely interesting nose, or the extremely boring, lightly malted, grapy body...there’s little more to say.
