crystal clear dark amber, big frothy beige head, streaky lace, dark caramel malt aroma with a fresh bread character, rich malt flavor, nice caramel sweetness, light nutty chocolate character, touch of roasted, the sweetness with the chocolate starts to take on a nice milk chocolate quality,

Score: 3.2 to 3.5

chocolate is getting a lot stonger in the flavor along with the nutty character, caramel sweetness is playing a supporting role to bring out more chocolate character,

daknole (8941) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle. I do believe I got this while in Atlanta last year. An amber/brown pour. Small light tan head. Aroma is very benign with some light nutiness and malts. Flavor has caramel, nuts, and a light finish of floral hops. Ok.

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Bottle… Hazy, burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nutty, malty bouquet supplies biscuit, cream soda and toasty, chocolaty notes. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with stinging carbonation. Although malt-forward, chocolaty and nutty, the flavor is well-balanced. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Thanks to beeryum for this one. Pours a nice deep copper shade with medium white head. Aroma of caramel malt, spices, some hopcit. Tastes malty, with some fruit, brown sugar, hops, and spice. It all doesn’t quite seem to jive on the tongue, but the underlying complexity and quality still comes through. Solid.
