3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Pours a chestnut brown color with a small beige head that has fair retention. The aroma is mild and understated with some vague sweet malts. The taste is sweet with syrup, brown sugar, and rock candy. The palate was medium and the carbonation soft. Finished short and sweet. Overall: Not bad, but not likely to win any medals either.

"Not much on the nose besides a boozy sweetness, but the flavor has a nice, sweet complex breadiness to it that is very pleasant. Mahogany colored, thin cap. 10% not overbearing. "

See through caramel color. Light caramelized smell. Roasted Smokey sweetness mellow for its strength. Leaves a light syrup coating behind.

22oz bottle from Mammoth lakes via some good friends. Pours clear mahogany red, with hardly any head. Malty fruity nose with a little honey and toast. Roasted flavors, with malts, not cloying but not as sweet as it should be. Would expect more alcohol presence. Very Clean and smooth, very good.
