3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very enjoyable brew. Pours a dark muddy brown with a tan head atop. The aroma is malty with light roasted toffee and molasses malts, light hops are almost not present. A creamy malt base with a dry finish. Nice bready and molasses malt flavours that gives a good body to the brew. Overall, a good sessionable dark brew.

On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours black with a reddish tinge and a small beige head. Nose is very dry, with chalk and dirty earthy notes. Flavour is dirty and earthy, with some crusty bread notes dominating. Pretty bleh - seems burnt and too dirty. Not too pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Approximately 3-4 oz sampler at the Brewpub in Lahaina, Maui. The pour is a mostly clear black brown with a small light tan head. The aroma is roasted, slight char malt, along with a touch of malt sweetness. The taste is lightly sweet malt, followed close behind with the big char roast. Clean, crisp, nice subtle flavor. The palate is light bodied, featuring crisp carbonation and a dry mineral finish. Nice one.
