3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured to my SA pint glass at home, showing a clear, brownish copper color, with a modest amount of cream/light tan head foam that diminished rather quickly to a ring and film, and left some wavey spots & spray on the glass. The nose was toasty, with notes of caramel sweetness, light malt, light graininess, a touch of cocoa, and an underlying nuttiness. The flavor was similar, the body was medium, and a lively carbonation accentuated the moderate hop which was lightly earthy, and lingered nicely into the finish with a light, bitter bite. Decently sessionable!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp clear deep brown coloured body with a pungent ruby tint and a nice, one centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of earth, mushrooms, dirt, malt and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied; Assertive nutty flavour at first with a good, pungent malt kick and a strong earthiness showing a definite earthy bite and a full-flavoured toffee finish - definitely a full-flavoured beer for the style. Aftertaste shows the nuttiness of course, a bunch of earthy malts, some alcohol warmth and a good and robust caramel flavour. Overall, I wish I could say bad things about this one, but it does simply live up to another great beer from the brewery - much more flavour than most in this style and no bitterness, no harshness and a nice robust flavour which goes well in the autumn/winter. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Festival Foods (de Pere) in Green Bay, Wisconsin on 29-July-2012 for US$1.50 sampled at home in Washington on 08-November-2012.
