Bottle. Pours dark brown with ruby hues and a tan head. Aroma of extremly subtle brown sugar, toasted malt, faint hints of chocolate. Flavor is much the same with a light sweetness and mild hop spicy flavor. Light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, is ok.

A nice black red hue with low carbonation. Sweetness but not artificial. Lolly pop notes with a lingering malt taste. Nice beer. I had not been expecting much of this but was pleasantly surprised.

"Pretty standard beer for the style. Pleasant. Nothing that stands out for better or worse. Light roast, sweet bready malt, hints of coffee and nuts. Very lightly hopped."

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was introduced to this beer at a social gathering so I wasn’t really able to give it my full tasting experience attention but I liked it so much I decided to post. For me the rich, dark ebony appearance was very appealing enhanced by the bottle packaging. I didn’t have access to proper tasting glassware but on direct pour some head appeared but quickly dissipated which was somewhat disappointing from an aesthetic standpoint but as I found out this in no way degraded the positive experience for me. Also, the lower carbonation made it much lighter on the midsection. Aroma was slightly raisiny, slightly chocolaty to me and again very inviting. Initial wash over the tongue was smooth and creamy, with a pleasantly sweet aftertaste which I loved and just balanced with the right amount of bitterness. Overall this beer for me is probably best in fall/winter months with bigger-flavored meals and would probably make for some fantastic recipes as well as complement some deserts but I thoroughly enjoyed it on a warmer evening.

This was a weird one. Kind of came across as a super vanilla driven, sweet cold drip coffee.... Very sweet, almost lactose-like. Weird

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Decent brown pour w/ a tan head that doesn’t leave much lacing. The aroma is an odd malt scent. The taste is primarily all malt w/ a very weird & off putting finish. The beer isn’t that bad until the odd taste lingers on the tongue. Not good!
