3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy amberish copper, very thin head. The nose is belgianesque and dark fruity with a plum/date ester. The taste is a bit dry for my taste, but has a earthy caramel and dusty raisin tone about it. Hard to explain. Not a fan.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent amberish copper with thin foamy off-white head. Smells solid; malty with notes of caramelized sugar. Tastes like it smells, only a little sweet(er). Average on the palate. Decent beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Hoppin’ Frog. The beer pours a clear brownish-amber color with a thin foamy white head that recedes quickly. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of smoked malt and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of burnt malt, Fruity Pebbles and coffee. The finish is sweet with a sugary cereal malt aftertaste. Average overall.

On tap at Oasis, pours a clear light brown with a really thin head, the aroma is sweet with some caramel and a little bit of fruit coming through, the flavor is much of the same with some bread and sugar in the finish, a little bit of fruit mixes in which breaks up the one note of sweetness.

Growler. Pours amber with a thin head. Malty, toasted bread, and some light sweetness. Very faint hoppy notes and just a hint of booze. Not bad.
