Deep coppery red in hue. Toffee and roast malts on the nose. Smooth caramel which masterfully avoids copper notes, a dash of savoury smokiness, woody qualities to it aswell. Quite sweet and silky but with a smooth dryness to it that creates the perfect balance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep copper color, much like a whiskey; very little head; strong flavors of malt; initial sweetness, giving way to a slight tinge of hops. Nice carbonation. At 4.7 % ABV, a pleasant, sessionable beer, but nothing remarkable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Amber colored beer with an initial froth of off-white foam that quickly settles into a slick. Aroma is dry roast with peat and some darker malt notes with toffee and perhaps some minimal char. Taste is dry peat and toasted malt up front followed by a clean malt sweetness and light hop bitterness into the finish. Clean mouthfeel. Very nice drinking sub-5% ABV beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a copper color, just like a penny. Is very transparent. A small white head recedes quickly leaving no lace on glass. Buttery, musty and woodsy aromas. Very malty, mild sweetness with a mild hop spice at the end. It has a slick body thats lightly carbonated. Subtle raisin or dark fruit in the finish. Very mild beer. Kind of rich, no smokiness. Easy to drink but not exciting or flavorfull at all. A bit boring.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 Not much aroma but tasted good and subtle. Nice contrast to the IPA I drank it most of the night. I?d drink it again. Update: drank it again on tap at hop n grape in longview. This beer is great!
