2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft... Clear, dark ruby ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is subtle chocolate, red wine and vanilla. Nicely balanced and a bit tangy. Nutty with chocolate and vineous notes. Medium-bodied and very lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes creamy and barely bitter. Not much to it, really.

"pretty smooth, on par with Moose drool flavor-wise, but a little lighter in body, more like a Samuel Smith’s. A solid effort, but not worth going out of your way for."

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Yard House. Pours a pretty much clear amber-tinted brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, chocolate, brown sugar, and faint coffee. Flavor is the same but a tad better; sweet, malty, and toasty. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Solid brown ale. Nothing spectacular, just gets the job done.
