bottle - Pours dark amber with a small light tan head and a very malty aroma with some toffee. The flavor is of sweet malt and caramel with a medium body, light, soft carbonation, and a mildly bitter finish. It’s good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle bought on a trip to Michigan. This beer is dark brown with caramel colored highlights and a decent tan head that becomes blotchy. The aroma is an Irish malt based beer and that comes through in the flavor. It began a little hot but the alcohol soon settled. Hops were grassy and there was a strong earth theme. The finish included coffee.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Darker red amber brew with one finger of off white head that settles down to a persistent thin frothiness. Aroma of roasted malts, hops. Taste begins with malt sweetness - maybe a little too sweet - transitioning to a blend of malt, molasses, brown sugar. Moderately bitter hops towards the end of the swallow transitioning into a somewhat uncouth sour hoppiness at the very end. Is OK.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a light brown with reddish highlights and a small/medium head of tan suds. Aromas are malty and sweet... brown sugar, bread and caramel, but offer little else. Flavor is a cloyingly sweet combination of the above (with special emphasis on the brown sugar) with maple syrup and a bit of roasted malt in the finish... that quickly fades back to brown sugar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Party World? outside of GR. Almost clear red amber with small to medium, creamy beige head. Aroma is sweeter biscuit and caramel malt, some yeast spice, very pleasant. Flavor is a surprising sweet roast with chocolate, yeast, biscuit, caramel, pretty rich, solid and full flavored. Medium body with active carbonation. Very nice, very tasty, what I like about this brewery. Instyle but doing something a little extra and interesting.
