3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Drinkable" is the word that comes to mind. The toasted malt flavor steps away at the mouth, revealing a hint of hoppy bitterness which then gives way to a creamy, lightly sweet, but roasted taste that goes down easy. A 22 oz bomber goes pretty fast, though you never get the sense that this is a discount or watered down beer. Just enough carbonation to make it more refreshing than heavy. Got it at Trader Joe’s.

Not surprisingly, brown in color with a khaki head. Starts off with a mild toast on the aroma, maybe a bit of roast as well. Plenty of sweet toffee and a mild caramel note. The flavor has a subtle hoppiness which is nice and works well with the toasted and caramel flavors of the beer. Mildly roasty with a hint of coffee and chocolate.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark brown and clear with a moderate head, this has relatively little aroma. I’m actually detecting a slight skunkiness to the beer that makes it off-putting.

The aroma is nice and roasted with chocolate, coffee, burnt malt, earth, and grassy hops. The appearance brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma but astringent. The palate is thin. Overall this is just average.
