Amber brown. Medium head. Sweet caramel. Malty. Nutty. Pecan’ish. A rather expensive "gift" from David!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber color. Smells like carmel, roasted grains, along with some of the hops. Taste is a mild bitterness followed by a mild biscuit taste. Nothing that really stands out about this one. Not great, but not bad.

12 oz via bottle at Mickey’s in Des Moines. Light to mild hop bitterness and mild malt sweetness with light notes of caramel, toffee and toasted grains. Light to medium body, pretty clean and easy to drink. Not bad.

Like a scotch ale with some substantial hopping. Cola, licorice, burnt sugar - these big flavors are balanced out by the hops. Good beer to start off with

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Old Chicago. Pours a reddish-amber with minimal head. Aroma of malt, some hops. Flavor was very sweet, lots of malt, not a whole lot to really distinguish it. Not terrible, either. Went well with my calzone.

Bottle from MrBarleywine, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a reddish amber color with a decent sized off white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of caramel, toffee, earth, light brown sugar and fruits. Somewhat grassy aroma as well. Carmel and toffee with light fruitiness dominate the flavor. 35 IBU’s but I can’t find any flavor from them. Medium body light to moderate carbonation. Not horrible, but not great either.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared bottle. Drinkable but certainly not memorable. Decent Amber beer not really red in color. Malty and a little sweet. Will not be seeking this one out again in the future. Probably better on tap at the brewery as a first beer of the day.
