2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle gushes then settles into a watery, translucent deep brown with some foamy white head. Nose is weird, malty, brown bread, some light citrus. Flavor is the same, something is not quite right, chocolate, some bitterness. Medium bodied.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
hazy chestnut, thinnest white ring. Prune and date, paper bitterness, bit of celery. Flavor of light date, watery, light leaf, bubblegum esters. Not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with brown highlights and a small, off-white head.
Nose shows cocoa and chocolate with little else noticeable, although some roasted coffee is present later. Citrus is barely noticeable.
Flavours mainly focus on plain roasted malt, with some very faint coffee in the background. Again, very little citrus.
Body feels a bit watery.
Seems like a schwarzbier.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Dexters. Deep red hued brown-black. Steady beige head. Really odd artificial orange aroma. Orange liqueur w/o the harsh alcohol. Orange-chocolate tones dominate, like a bad Shorts beer. Cake-like, desserty, not unlike a Milano cookie. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Quite unimpressive. Milano all the way.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
651mL thanks to nimbleprop. GUSHER. Pours a hazy, deep brown with yeast chunkies. Towering, over carbonated gray head. Nose is floral and soapy with oxidized red apples. Taste is mildly roasty, minerally, tangy with soft infected characters. Drained of body. Ends up being lightly tangy and citric with mild roast in the background. Fairly bland.
