Small tan head with a dark black body. Lots of bubbles. Aroma of oats. Flavors of licorice, raisins and even a little smokiness in the finish. Soft palate. Nice job!

Sweet aroma, with definite honey notes. Light tan head, that quickly dissipates. Combines a dry, satisfying, roasted malt altbier with refreshingly sweet background notes.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish tan coloured head, only a thin layer on top, with the body showing some lighter brown colours and even copper when held on an angle. Aroma of honey, oats, earth, molasses, prunes, raisins and a lot of caramel - nice and fragrant. Medium-bodied; Assertive honey and floral flavour at first with not much body at all and a funky metallic and earthy bite in the middle. Aftertaste is even more mild with only a moderate amount of sweetness coupled with some toasted grain and not much else - fairly simple in tasting. Overall, a decent beer, at most and passable at worst. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased two days ago at Whole Foods (Bowery) in New York, New York for US$2.99 sampled in my hotel room here on the LES of New York on 19-July-2014.

Soft copper brown pour with two fingers of tan head. Nose is meh, papery and similar to Irish Stouts. Weak. Flavor shows some fruit and charred grain. Bleh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from one of my mother’s Red Hat Lady friends who wanted me to grab her a t-shirt at the Kiss concert. Pours a clear dark reddish brown color with a small off white head that doesn’t last. The aroma and flavor have honey, molasses, a subtle nutty character, light chocolatey notes, toasted bread, medium bodied, smooth, softer finish in both feel and flavor. Very little hop character, very malty. I think it is a bit better than the ratings indicate.

Bottle pour. Pours dark with a vanishing head. Sweet malt and chocolate aroma. Nice dark malt flavor with some chocolate. A little sweet on the finish. Interesting, unique beer. Not bad at all.

Honey, molasses oats.... I would go with other options in most cases but not a bad beer by any means
