3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured a dark brown almost black hue w/ a med dark tan head fully dissipating and minimal lacing. Medium pleasant beer aromas of hop roasted malt and grain. Taste is light sweet with flavors of caramel and dark chocolate ends with a faint bitter that can almost be attributed to the roast flavor as much as the hops. Medium body, almost has a creaminess to it.

Pours a dark black color with a decent dark tan head. Aroma is pleasant beginning with a faint hop note followed by roasty malt and grain. Taste is good. Notes of caramel and dark chocolate pairs nicely with a slight fruit sweetness finished with a malt that rounds it out very nicely. Pretty good beer.

This beer is a dark brown color with a medium creamy tan head that recedes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and hops. Light-bodied with a roasty malt character and notes of grassy hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is slightly smoky with a short malt aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Typical Point ale. Not very complex, but good for the non micro brew drinker for exposure into a dark style ale.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation and a semi-opaque black colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was of black malt. The flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The thick flavor contained notes of dark and roasted malts. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.
