3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler poured a super dark brown in color bordering on black with a one finger tan head that held on pretty well. Aroma has dark rich brown malts, chocolate, and some nuts once it warmed a bit in the glass. Mouth feel is medium heavy with a nice hefty coating and good carbonation for a growler. Flavor brings on unexpected richness, nuts, roasted malt, and creamy sweetness.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Empty malt presence that sorely lacks a backbone. The hint of nuttiness is there, but unappealingly so - just a hint of awkward sweetness coming from something other than malt. but identifiably. Not a bad beer, but blatantly lacking in almost all criteria.

On tap at the 2011 Kuhnhenn Winter Solstice. Pours a near clear brown with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of grain and bread with a good amount of underlying nuttiness. Flavor has sweet dark grains and bread with a bit of backing nuttiness.

Growler thanks to mikem409. Little carbonation. Roasted caramel is there. But overall is a bit thin. Decent nutty after taste.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2011 On tap at Kuhnhenn. Pours lightly hazed light brown with light tan head. Aroma of caramel, nutty, and some dark malts. Flavor is light with caramel, nuts, and light dark malts. Not some imperial as it had the flavor profile of an average nut brown.
