4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wasn’t getting much in the aroma, but this was a very tasty beer. Quite smooth, doesn’t come of as super malty like you might expect. A nice beer I’d say anytime of the year. Had all three of these I just rated from meeting one of the owners in Vegas. Thanks Corby!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Consumed at a recent DC area tasting. Served in a SAVOR snifter.
Pours a moderate caramel-brown color. Really, really murky without any real head formation or lacing afterward. The nose brings some light caramel and toffee plus a bit of bready easta nd some light toast. Flavor is mostly just a touch of caramel with some very light hopping and then some bread. Mouthfeel is medium with a bit of booze. Not bad, but not something I’d look for again.
