3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown body, thin off-white head upon pouring, quickly crashes, leaving minimal lacing. Rich caramel, toffee, florals, and bread in the nose. Flavor profile is more subdued and muddled. Medium to light bodied, thinness in the middle drowns out some of the flavors, soft finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a nice sweet malt aroma.
Appearance- This is a very dark brown beer with a small brownish colored head.
Taste- The flavor is a little empty to me. A great aroma and look but the flavor was a little to one-dimensional with the malt. Not bad but I was expecting more.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with mild carbonation. this beer has a slightly oily texture.
Overall- It is OK to me, i noticed many others rated it a lot higher.
