3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
First had this sometime around 1998/99 west of the Mississippi but now its made it to PA. Always found the profile pleasant. Dark brown/translucent with light tan head. Hint of roast and caramel nose. Caramel with burnt malt finish. Thinner palate, mild hop profile. Nice balance of malt (up front) and roasty finish. Maybe not as memorable as when I first found this but it still holds a nice place in my heart based on that early experience.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can. Sweet, flowery aroma. Nearly-opaque rootbeer/black color with minimal head and persistent lacing. Strong malty and sweet flavor quickly dissipating to finish somewhat walnut and hazelnut, slighty bitter. Good with pie, not so ood with salty snacks. Will buy again.

This is actually a delightful malty brew. Pours a purely black body with a thick, frothy beige head. The nose is bready with a light toasted caramel malt. Sweet malty front with a light grassy hop and a mild toffee, hazelnut note. Finish is mild and lightly bitter with a great balance and a light floral note.
