3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap during the 2011 Small Batch Festival.
Pours a deep dark mahogany copper with mahogany edges and frothy 2 finger yellowish head. Excellent retention slowly fading into a lasting cap that leaves chunks of lacing behind.
Slightly toasted malt aroma with hints of light fruit,caramel, toffee and biscuit. Smells more complex than your average amber.
Full bodied with a creamy texture and a good balance of toasty malt and subtle hop bite. Toasted but not burnt with hints of light fruit and floral hops. Sweet with slight dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap during Small Batch Revival 2011. Dark rusty amber, big fluffy white head. Smells of funky, mildewy malt, pretty caramelly background. Cant get over the mildew presence. Taste had some smoked malt and typical amber ale malt, full of biscuits and toffee. Comes together nicely though. Finishes smoky yet sweet. Toffee and malty smoke makes it end with a dry finish. Somewhat odd, but interesting.
