Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Light malty sweetness, some toasted bread, and light fruity hints. Low bitterness. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at Ginger Man (NYC), 1/19/13
Aroma: This one has a sweet nose, with caramel, some dark malts, and a little roast
Appearance: This one pours a dark red-brown color with a creamy beige head and lots of lace
Flavor: Tastes rather sweet, similar to the nose component-wise, and in need of some hop balance
Palate: This one has a smooth feel that is a bit sticky and a hint cloying, with a soft carbonation
I thought this one was solid, though it could have used some balance. There was a lot of sweetness here. Decent, but a little too sweet for my tastes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at DBS. Aroma and flavor of a traditional wee heavy. Some nice malt aroma and flavor all around without much hop presence at all. Pretty good offering with a sweet hint to it.
