3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. I liked it, but it was a little one dimensional. Amber color, smell that started out big with the thin amount of foam immediately after the pour, but quickly went away. I bit of a syrupy texture, medium bodied. Tasted like caramel, sweet, and a little salty with a matly backbone. Again, my rating on this isn’t high, but I liked it a lot. There just weren’t any aspects that were especially attention grabbing, which can actually be nice in and of itself.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber gold with a big fluffy off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty catamel with a pronounced fruity character, some toffee and nuttiness. Flavor starts with an odd fruitiness, picking up some caramel and toffee notes before a lightly bready and a hint of spice in the finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Odd beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle] Pours a clear deep brown color with a dense brown head. Rich molasses and toffee in the nose. Taste is of sweet rolls, nutmeg, burnt caramel, sticky toffee, mild alcohol and a faint hop bitterness. Impressive palate and mouthfeel, with a low level of carbonation. Sticky and sweet, but in balance as you would expect from better examples of the style. Nice!
