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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Nimbus in south Tucson. It’s a very dark brown color with medium carbonation. The smell is caramel malts, roasted malts, and mild hops. The tastes is a little sweet, some caramel flavor, brown sugar, and a little bitterness from the hops. It’s like a light version of a barley wine. Overall pretty good.
