3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This stuff is dark and murky looking in the glass. It has a rough grainy taste. The aroma is somewhat fruity yet earthy and rather unbalanced. It has a bitter finish. Nothing to write home about.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent beer. Faint dark malt aroma. A little earthy. Bread crust brown color with a decent head. Average to thin palate with good carbonation. Not a heavy beer but coated the tongue well with flavor. Some roasted and biscuit flavors with a malt bite at the end. Not much of a hops presence, which wasn’t expected. Just OK.

Draft at SGD. Deep mahogany pour with a bubbly white head. Faint malt aroma of toast and pecans. Flavor is similar and light with a mild nutty bitterness at the end. Meh, kind of boring.

Appearance: medium cola brown with a short, creamy, light beige head and average lacing. Aroma: light molasses, brown sugar, toasted nuts, mellow earth hops. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: clean and smooth, with lingering balanced flavors slowly fading. Notes: Quite a nice example of the style, with a very drinkable palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12 ounce bottle bought from The Veggie Wagon in Carolina Beach, North Carolina, tasted on August 8, 2013. Nice dark brown/ruby hue, sweet malty nose, flavor like the aroma but with a chemical taste that causes me to significantly lower my rating. I feel 3.1 is being lenient. Unless I got an old bottle, can’t understand the overall high marks this beer gets.
