3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahogany body topped by a fairly nice dense light tan had. Lacing is excellent. The aroma is quite sweet with caramel being the dominate item. The flavor is also los of caramel with some notes of chocolate shining through. Medium bodied and quite pleasing. Not a bad beer at all.

Medium brown in color with a large head. Smells malty & sweet, while the flavor is mainly roasted caramels. Drinkable, yes, but not worth seeking out.

This is another example of why I have not been impressed with the beers I have tried from this brewery. Although this one is not quite as bad as the others, it is still not very impressive. Amberish brown appearance with little to no head and light lacing. A bit of sweetness at times, but for the most part a roasted nutty flavor, with some really apparent alchohol in the finish.
