3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark mahogany color, brown, with medium sized head. Aroma of caramel, with light roasted nuts and wood oven baked bread; very light yeast and basil impression, later. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is lean; it has a very good caramel flavor, with mild residual sugars, and the required toasted nuts; quite bitter; more nutty in the end, with darker caramel too.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. A finger thick light beige head sits patiently on top of a clear, amber to brown body. The aroma is on the malty side, toffee and some roasted notes. Not much hoppiness going on. Some in the aroma though, bringing balance. Toffee and some roasted hints. Full body with a pleasant carbonation. Lasting lightly roasted finish with a good bitterness. A pleasant beer, well suited for the cold season. 130805
