Aroma - aroma is really nice, like a good piece of bread. It smells soft and just good.
Appearance - is a nice copper color, with a white head that stick around and then falls.
Taste - the taste is wonderful. It’s listed as a bitter, but it certainly isn’t that. I docked it a point, or it’d be a 9. It’s a wonderfully malty brew, it tastes of a perfectly malted barley, perhaps some oats.
Feel - the body is medium, creamy, soft, and just an abrupt ending. Yet, it’s goodness survives.
This is one of the best beers I’ve had, I am surprised by it’s low rating, perhaps it is because of it’s listed style. Sometimes a beer is just better than that. I really can’t say enough good things.

I’ve never been a fan of the guy. The beer made no impression of me either. Overly sweet, syrup, honey, on top of an ordinary bitter. I had it a while ago and thought I’d rated it alredy. Screw him.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Starting off with some hops and citrus fruits. But after that it develops some strange toffee and caramel moments leading this one to be a bit tough to drink. Did not like that too much.

@ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Clear dark amber, thin head cover, splotches of lace. Taste is fizzy malt with a touch of citrus. Light bittering enters deep in the palate, yielding to caramel malt in the finish. Quite a lot going on for 4.5abv. Does what it means to do.
