3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Majority of 5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub. Pours an amber to light to medium brown with an orange / copper hue and beige head. Nice look. Light, malty aroma features scents of sausage, nuts, and English-style yeast. Chocolate and raspberry flavors. Quite flavorful for the style and ABV. Reminds me of a Belgian Dubbel. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Quite good for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewpub. Hazy light brown pour with a clingy head. Sweet and nut on the nose. Medium palate. Pretty simple, but not bad.
