3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a huge tan head. Nose is of malt and caramel. Very thick and creamy on the palate. The taste is of malt, caramel, spices and well balanced dry hopping on the finish. An excellent beer that pairs well with Sheboygan brats and onions.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle.
It pours a hazy reddish brown with a thick, foamy slightly off-white head.
The nose is pretty simple, some raisiny fruits, caramel, and perhaps some alcohol.
The flavor doesn’t go to far, there is a thick walnuttines and caramel flavor, also some alcoholic twang.
It is okay, but nothing exciting really.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
aroma is nutty with beginnings of real toffee character. appearance is polished but darkened center on pretty ruby body with great lacing/carb. oil slick head shifts and flows. flavor is tangy, rubbery (but pleasant) caramel, more nuttiness from aroma steps near dopplebock territory. substantial chewy mouthfeel echoes the caramel within.
