Bottle from Manchester W&L. Poured into a tulip glass. A deep ruby black color with frothy medium tan head. Aroma of alcohol and roasty malts. I let this one warm a long time. Flavor is smooth and silky. Lots of roasty chocolate and coffee notes. Medium bitterness. Some alcohol burn on the backside. Not bad at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Clear golden pour with dirty orange highlights and a small, fat-bubbled, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is a marriage of caramel and earthy hops. Full-bodied and fatty with mild carbonation. The flavor emulates the nose while presenting a nice balance between bitter and sweet. Lengthy, moderately sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is murky brown with red hues and tan head with large bubbles. Nose has rich dark malt up front with a light grain immediately behind. A bit of root beer and a touch seltzery in back. Taste has a lot of the rich malt up front, caramel and chocolate, a bit sugary and burnt sugar, a note of root beer behind, not as thin as I thought through the finish. Well carbonated and full body, a bit grainy on the palate.
