3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at Ginger Man, 4/12/13
Aroma: It has a somewhat cocoa nose, vanilla is present too, and there’s light roast here
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish-brown color with a frothy light brown head on it
Flavor: I thought that this one had too sweet a taste, it could use some roast or hops or something
Palate: It has a medium body, and it has a soft, smooth and creamy feel on the mouth
There are things to like here, but at the same time, this one is a little gimmicky and extremely sweet. It is still pretty tasty, but I could have used more balance.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Keegan. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown with a thin white head. Soft honey and caramel toffees on the nose, a good amount of vanilla. Nice toasty caramel. Lovely vanilla. Medium bodied, toast and caramel, soft sweetness. The vanilla is great, not overpowering but very subtle. Toast and a very light amount of roast. Light toast and bitterness on the finish. Tasty and easy drinking but I wouldn’t mind a bit more roast.
