2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear brown color, beige rim head, streaks of lace. Taste is malt infused with chocolate and cherry. No change until a light bitter draws things to a close in the finish. I was surprised to detect alcohol late. A little heavy, somewhat one-note, but drinkable, none-the-less.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a semi-transparent amberish-brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells of sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with some toffee and light hop notes Average on the palate. Okay.

Hazy dark brown color, medium tan head. Aroma is winter fruit and light spice. Taste has a bit of citrus and spice. Medium to light body, a bit too light for the style.
