Bottle. Pours in clear copper body with low white head. Aroma has caramel, light grassiness, biscuit. Taste has high burned caramel toffee sweetness, bitterness is on the light side, coming up in the after taste. When it warms up, the caramel is more intensive in the aroma. Body is medium to full, medium carbonation.

BREWMUSKCLES (2403) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2014
A LITTLE GRAVY AND SOME SWEETNESS the beer has some character and moderate body with a little thickness which adds appeal. soft carbonation some caramel and a touch of rum like alcohol this was pretty good with a moderate finish.

chinchill (3129) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Served in a pint glass at the brewery. A: hazy brown body with a decent off-white head that had moderate retention but left some sticky patterned lacing on the glass. Feel: Soft, near medium carbonation. Medium body. Aroma: Herbal, floral and mildly hoppy with a biscuit base. Taste: Average hops for (American) style. Bitter and sweet and almost equal balance. Well crafted but lacks complexity. O: on style and modestly above average.

Hangover (1092) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Dark brown pour with a long lasting tan head. Aroma is of hazlenut and roasted malts. Slightly syrupy sweet flavor, with a lingering toasty/woodsy malt backbone. Body is nice and creamy. Maybe just a bit too artificially sweet, but it’s tasty.

Aurelius (4680) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Didn’t love the aroma on this one. Kinda smells like coffee breath. Clear, medium to slightly dark brown. Bad label. Looks like Atlanta is shooting me the bird. Roasted, lightly sweet, lightly astringent. Lightish body. Roast finish. Meh. ABC Liquors, Betton.
