3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Mad Mex, Monroeville. Light aroma that deepens after warming a bit. Mild sweet maltiness with some fruity hops. Bit of caramel, fruity pears, and some pine resin. Clear medium amber with thin lacing off-white head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts mild with light sweet caramel notes. Soon gets busy with nice hop bitterness. Biscuity notes, pine resin, and astringent finish. Some brown sugar sweetness. Nutty dry after. Good bitterness and well balanced with malty sweetness. Nice ale.

Thanks to Zathrus13 for this one. Pours out a ruby color with a small thin head. Aroma is rather plain with some notes of hops. Taste was also slightly plain, not much going on there, some hops and some caramel malt here and there, not overlly impressed.

Bottle from Who else?? Zathrus13,thanks for all the brews in our latest and greatest. Something about this one,might have been a little off
as it really didn’t have much of anything to it. I couldn’t pick out a flavor that I could define.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sammy: Poured a deep copper color ale with small off-white foamy head with average retention. Aroma of deep caramel malt with some very subtle hops. Taste is also dominated by sweet caramel malt with very little hops presence that I could detect. Body is a bit thin and alcohol is well hidden. A bit weak overall and definitely lacking character to make this worthwhile.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a off-white, almost yellowy head. Citrusy hop nose, with some caramel and toffee. Flavor is a touch sweet caramel and toffee, then grows into a resiny hop flavor. The sweetness lingers in the finish, although a sharp bitter bite has to recede before you taste it. Solid and rather interesting offering, with a great story behind the name.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brilliant copo color with minimal off-white head. Aroma has plenty of caramel and toffee, somewhat oxidized. Smeel like an aged bigfoot in a way. Flavor was very weak caramel and nothing else. Very flat/thin mouthfeel. Maybe a bad bottle, will re-rate another in the near future.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a clear dark amber color with a small off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with toffee, sugar, and fruit. The flavor was malty with caramel notes to start. Hoppy flavor in the middle with some piney notes. Medium bodied. I just saw this is 7.7% I thought it was just a 6% or so beer. Well hidden.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured an amber color with a very modest head that laced minimally. The aroma was funky at first. Some light hops (citrus and floral) with a strong molasses type smell. The flavor was like a fairly funky caramel amber ale (some metallic and herbal / earthiness) that had some resinous and citrus hops in the finish. Mouthfeel was a little sticky.
