3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at NOC in NC?
Malt, hops and some over-ripe dark fruit in the aroma.
A little fruitiness in the taste as well, but mostly a simple malt flavor with a mild hop overlaid. Has a mildly bitter finish and aftertaste.
Medium-light body; fine carbonation.
O - an interesting beer with a solid and lingeering dark malt finish and aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear dark, amber w/ small off-white head that quickly vanishes to a lasting thin sheet w/ spotty lacing. Fruity, caramel aroma with some pear, toffee, earth and tobacco. Mouthfeel is medium and smooth, almost creamy. Finish is sweet w/ some bitterness. Flavors are caramel w/ a hint of coffee and dark chocolate. An excellent balance of sweet and bitter on the back end. I really enjoyed this one, and will pick it up whenever I can.
