3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a dark amber color with an off-white head. Lots of toffee and bread malt aromas with a touch of toast. There is a bit of a nuttiness in the background. Tastes much like it smells. Sweet bread and toffee with a hint of brown sugar. A nice nuttiness and perhaps even a hint of vanilla. It’s also a bit toasty with a mild fruitiness. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark mahogany-amber with a small tan head that fades quickly to a ring around the edge of the glass. Aroma of nuts, roast, caramel and honey. The taste is malty and caramel sweet with a mild bitterness. Medium bodied with a short finish. Decent brew, seems sessionable, but at that abv, it would be an abbreviated session.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from The Creeper.
Pours a deep, cohesive mahogany with amber highlights. The nose is assy malt and roasted leaves from a dirty field. Flavor is a slightly smoky caramel-infused molasses that leaves a trail of smoked raisin and bread. Oily but average on the tongue. Not bad tasting, but the nose needs some work.
