3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark clear ruby with a quickly dissipating off white head. Aroma is toffee, raisin and roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate and brown sugar. Roasty qualities keep it from being too sweet. Only negative is a weird lagerish finish. Medium chewy mouthfeel and strong carbonation. Pleasant surprise.

12 oz bottle from a winter mix 12 pack. Murky brown color with thin white head. Aroma is molasses, roasted grain and light notes of fruit?? Toasted walnuts, light caramel and a weak earthy hop in the finish. A nuance of spice. Thin body that borders on watery. No problems just really light.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a dark brown/almost dark golden colored body with a small white head that lasts just a couple seconds. Spotty lacing running down the sides of the glass.
The smell has some mild roasted malts along with some nuts.
The taste is slightly sweet through the roasted malts.
The palate is light and sessionable with a mild nutty aftertaste and finish.
Overall, this is good for the style, and awesome to me.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber colored beer with a fluffy tan head. Strong caramel and malty flavors with a molasses finish. Probably could have used more of a spiced note. OK beer but nothing I’d recommend.
