Pour is dark brown and gives a large off white head. Nose is light caramel with nice bits of hazelnut and brown sugar dancing around. The taste is sweet with a good unexpected bitterness taking over at the end. Crisp and clean, medium body and a long finish. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at PPC. Clear deep reddish amber with minimum beige foam. Nose is cheap cherry coke, vanilla, brown sugar. Taste is very sweet, oily, rich, dense. Palate is thick, rich, maple syrupy. Not too cloying. Bitter chocolate would be a nice balancer here but it's absent. Still delicious. Dessert beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a dark amber color with a thin khaki head. Sweet malt, particularly toffee, on the nose with a nice bread and molasses aroma. A touch of peat and quite a bit of dark fruit. Mild alcohol on the flavor with lots of rich malt flavor in the form of toffee, molasses, and toasted bread. Good fruit notes, mild peatiness, perhaps just a hint of cocoa.

Nice beer overall. Nice malty sweetness and a little alcohol punch. I got drunk pretty quickly. Nothing really special to talk about, just a pretty standard example of the style.
