2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Lancaster Smokehouse. Not much aroma to speak of, but the little there is has metallic and roasty notes. Dark brown, clear, little head. Taste is smooth, creamy, sweet, leading into some less-than-desirable flavours... metal and "cheap milk chocolate" is the best way I can describe it. I remember this being better, and was disappointed. This brewery’s newer offerings are vastly different from its older ones.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep brown with a soft butterscotch head. The aroma is of caramel, toasty malt, a bit of sulfur. The taste is toasty-malty, medium bodied with a hint of chocolate and a slight herbal hop finish. Nothing crazy, but this is pretty well-balanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice little dark brew. A bit of chocolate malt with a light bittering malt. Well balanced and a good little session brew, but nothing special at all. Light roast, toasted grain malts...thats about it.
