2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at home on a lazy Monday night. This was discounted by more than 50% off, and I can see why. Appearance is cola brown with a light white rim. Aroma of maple syrup, chocolate, ovaltine, and caramel. Taste just isn't good, very carbonated syrupy flavor, not enjoyable.

Not bad, but Parallel 49 is usually a lot better. Pretty typical ale, kind of flat and watery with some malt and coco notes.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep, dark, translucent brown colour. Foamy tan head, but little retention and no lacing. Aroma is chocolate, toffee, caramel, and a hint of roasted coffee. Taste is a sweet, notes of toffee, roasted nuts, a hint of chocolate, and a faintly bitter coffee finish. Full body, thick textures, fizzy carbonation and a long, sweet finish. Actually quite impressed with this one, has a lot of character and flavour and isn’t too heavy or rich.
