2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep amber pour with a thick sticky white head. the nose is a bit sweet and toasty. A touch of chewy toffee. A bit of light breadiness. A little bit of lightly dusty malt on the base. It’s a tad too sweet despite the dark malt base. A bit of crystal malt that I find a bit off. It’s not terrible, but it’s not terribly good either.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweeter malty aroma, with toasty and toffee notes, and a light fruity hint. The flavor has sweet malts, toasty notes, a hint of rye, and some light hoppy bitterness. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear copper with white head. The mild aroma seems to lightly swirl with notes of caramel, sweet malts, sugar coated red apple wedges, a touch of citrus cotton candy and some herbs. The taste is pretty rich with sweet caramel, sweet malts, stewed raisins, ripe red apples, spiciness and some yeast too.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
9/6/10. On tap. Orange-ish pour, almost looks like a pumpkin beer. Typical grainy smell, but loaded with soapy badness and even some sour... The flavor is bitter and grainy, turns extremely sweet, and then hints at some sort of odd chocolate touch. I wish this brewery would go away.

A little bit of smoke aroma in this brings it above the average for style, but still the taste overall comes off a bit weird. Pours clear copper. Average carbonation, sticky consistency. Aftertaste a little sweet and odd - seems slightly off just like their #9. Bottle from Smoke it Cigars in San Juan.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured lighter orangey-amber with a short-ish lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up a sweet dose of bready, vienna-ish malts with some vanilla and odd appley-vegetal character around.. caramel and citrus hops also make an appearance.. weird stuff. The flavor found a sweet core of caramel, bready, and honey notes, with tacky fruit and otherwise unidentifiable bitterness around.. a bit acidic in the end.. didn’t like this very much. Light-medium bodied and well carbonated on the palate.. very sweet overall.. candied with an odd complexion.

Draft at Shortys with Andy and Paul. Pours an amber body with light lacing. Aroma is light bready, sweet malts, and spice. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of bland spice, malt and bread. Very bland and plain.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, nice lacing, off white foamy head. Roasty nose, some caramel in the aroma. Flavor has some caramel. molasses, a hoppy bite and a bit of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Serviceable enough for a tailgate,
