3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from ericandersnavy. The white tape guy! Thanks a bunch. Pours damn near opaque brown with a foamy 4-finger beige head. Whoa - aroma of dark malt and cinnamon sticks (we just got a bunch of those). Medium plus body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is dark malt, astringent cinnamon bark thing, coffee, maybe chocolate. Yeh, I think chocolate. The head is clinging all over the tulip glass. Iíll also buy nutty. But muted nutty. Finishes dry, but some malt sweet insists on hanging around. Then everything goes creamy. Creamed coffee aspects. Enjoying the heck out of this. Merry Xmas guys. Iím with Fratto on this one.

dark brown that is red when held aloft. aroma is muted cinnamon, like a brachs cinnamon candy. flavor was a bit on the bland side to begin with not sure if i was still dealing with something else or not. slightly metallic the first 1/4 through this and i was scratching my head looking for the flavor. it just took a bit for this to open up. the light roast came through with an enjoyable bread sweetness. althoyugh the metallic note remained throughoput it did not detract too much from my enjoyment. nice fuinish of light pepper alcohol and sweet bread.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured clear garnety-brown with a dense cap of beige head.. sticky lacing followed it down. The aroma picked up toasty caramel and brown sugar notes with nutty accents and an odd sour component. The flavor found redder fruits (and some associated sourness) to join caramel and nutty sweetness at the core.. bitterness was light and earthy.. light, but present sticky warmth surrounded.. grainy, residual fruit and brown sugar sweetness on the finish. Medium-bodied with a slow, scratchy feel on the palate.. just flowed decently. OK brew.
