Decent red with a bubbly finish. Was this brewed in a three hundred foot sequoia? Maybe.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. A rich brownish red colored brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has some malty caramel along with some peach pancakes. This tastes like cheap brown pancake syrup on some pancakes. Notes of caramel and almonds come through in the long finish. The caramel gets stronger as you drink. I think that this could easily be called an ESB. The body is slick and thick at the same time. Actually, this is a nice drinker with just enough sweetness and hints of roast to keep it interesting, I dig it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2012 Dark red,short head,more than average carbonation.Clear.Nice looking.
Aroma is malty ,dark ,some mineral. Toasted Oatmeal cookie. Almost burnt toast,probably the dark carmel malt. Heavy toasty grainy. Strong toasted nutty cookie .Dusty.
Taste is pretty good,distinct grain maltiness(maybe german or english)with dark burnt carmel sweetness,some hoppiness but mildish. Nutty toasty.Fairly slick but smooth creamy with a fullish body. Not too hoppy it has bigger malt presence. Pretty good balance in taste with a nice conditioned or mildy complex taste. Smooth mellow mild peppery bittering finish that melts away.

Pours a deep dark red. Lots of caramel and a little candi sugar. A touch of nuttiness and a littl further down the sip you get some cocoa flavors. Candy sugar aroma. Finish is a touch of bitter hips. Decent.
