3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours sort of a copper color with a khaki head. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruit aroma. Good raisin, plum, and perhaps black cherry. Spicy clove and yeast on the back end. Taste is heavily sweet with lots of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. Big dark fruit flavors of raisin and plum. Mild spice and a bit of yeast, and some alcohol on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. This brew pours a dark brownish-amber color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit and yeast. Full-bodied and somewhat sweet with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and yeast. The finish is fruity with an earthy yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
