3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a nice looking mahogany body that is supporting a tan head of foam. The mild aroma offers up some sweet to a touch earthy malts as well as a touch of roasted malts and slivers of spicy like hoppiness. The taste is pretty smooth and delivers a mix of slightly roasty to slightly sweet to slightly earthy malts as well as a pleasing level of spicy to almost malt sweetened citrus hop notes. Nice easy drinking brew.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Blue Palm’s 4th Anniversary (was not sure what the style of beer was suppose to be when I tried it). Pours with a black hued body and a small tan head that lasts. Aromas are roasty and kind of spicy (sort of phenolic in nature). A bit musty and earthy smelling, light fruity hop character. Flavors are medium roasty, spicy, earthy and bready. Lively bubbles, medium dry, crisp.
