Dark brown / ruby with tight, creamy head. Aroma of malt, wood, peat. Taste is more dark malt, overall very smooth, some smoky and bitter on the palate. Nicely done.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY Clear ruby brown with a persistent head cover, bands of tan lace. Taste is sticky sweet caramel malt that doesnít add enough bittering to balance. In fact in the finish, raisins and prunes make an appearance. To my taste, it is heavy and cloying. I can drink it easily enough, but it isnít enjoyable.

Can. Pours redish brown/black with a small ring of tan lace. Aromas of caramel, plum, chocolate, and earthiness. Flavor is dark fruit, candy, slight booze, and rasin. Thick and viscous and filling. Good stuff

Can. Saw a six-pack of cans I didnít recognize for $10.29. Looked it up on RateBeer, and the 97 score and some of the top ratings sold me. The smell is very mild, with hints of chocolate and coffee. It pours dark brown, and the tan head dissipated almost as soon as I poured it. This beer has a complex, heavy mouth feel. The taste follows the smell. Itís almost not carbonated at all.And I cannot believe this has alcohol in it. Itís so smooth. Would definitely buy again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12-oz. can. Pours a deep, rich amber color with a brief tan head. Sweet caramel is the primary aroma with some maple syrup, toasted grain, wheat crackers, and a hint of nutmeg. Cloying caramel taste with a vegetal resiny tone (almost like rhubarb), some allspice, a light earthy hop bitterness, and a hint of smoky campfire. Medium body with a slightly slick texture.

Dark brown with light brown head. Malty-smokey aroma. Some roasted malt flavors combine with caramel and light smoke. Very complex and well balanced.
