2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty decent selection though nothing breath-taking. Dark brown pour. Very malty nose, and taste that follows with a bunch of sweetness. Relatively fizzy for a darker beer, but still easy to drink. Hides alcohol well.

Aroma is mainly hoppy and woody, not strong but inviting. It pours a clear umber with a thick, fine-bubbled wheat head. Malty flavor has notes of hops, caramel and cloves. Texture has decent body and fizz. In the mood for some monkeyshines? Here dey iz!

Sampled at the brewpub. I really don’t get much of a nose here. Malt and rich fruit. The flavorvis much morebpronounced and vibrant. Lots of fruit. Dark and citrus varieties. Some anise pops in along with cocoa. This is entertaining to try. So much is going on.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish amber color. Shy nose with some spicy notes. The palate shows a good mix of caramel and nuttiness. Mostly malt flavors, but good balance from the hops.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an opaque chestnut with a thin tan head...light sediment. Aroma is malty...molasses and some fig...a bit of an alcohol/nail polish note but faint. Flavor is roasty and has a bit of chocolate and dark fruit...better than the aroma suggests. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/malty and a bit of chocolate.
