4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep amber color with about an inch of creamy beige foam. Malty aroma with a hint of peat.
Smooth malty beer, with some peat but also some smokiness that tasted more like rauchmalt. Both the peat and the rauch were subtle. A little bit of tart frutiness in the aftertaste, very good.

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brownish red with a thick tan head and lots of lacing. Aoma is chocolate and cocoa puffs. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate but mellow. Has a nice mouthfeel and the hops are very subtle. A bit of a medicinal taste as it warms, so drink up.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft: Transparent Ruby/amber with a fading off white head. Aromas of caramel malts, nutty, weak hops, veggies (very strange, but I think it was peas, ick). Flavor started nice with a nice blend of hops and malt, some candy notes, midway the peas returned and ruined the aftertaste. Fair Lacing.
