Tasting at the pad of the ever gracious Bruce. Opaque dark brown beer, big yellowish tan - cream head. Palate is light and smooth. Sweet milk in the malt, a little cream as well. Vert light spice. Mild bubblegum ester underneath. Very mild dark fruits. Smooth semi dry finish. Tasty but a tad milky overall.

Dark mahogany color with ruby shades; creamy brownish head. Soft aroma, caramel and gentle roasted malts. Full bodied; good malt and caramel flavor, with a touch of chocolate; moderate residual sweetness; warming alcohol, and correct bitterness.
