3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Head is initially creamy and great but disappears fast. Roasted aroma with some definitive caramel and possibly some chocolate resembling a stout. Smooth and gentle malt flavour.
A very well balance beer that I really enjoyed. Just a touch of bitterness at the end and very easy to drink. Will I have it again ? You bet...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one is impressive. Looks and feels like a stout, but lacking the umph. That’s OK, because its not a stout. The aroma doesn’t smack you in the face, nor do the hops. But you know they’re there. The flavor is smooth, consisting mostly of malt. There is a lot of carbonation, but it doesn’t bite. I like the subtle nature of this brew. I could wax poetic like Goethe if I had a couple more.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 Bottled. Dark brown beer with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, with some caramel and hops. Flavor is mostly roasted malt, but there’s some hops lurking in the background. Medium to thin mouthfeel, and a dry, roasted finish. (060201)
