3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Reddish-brown and quite active. Caramel is the predominate character. Super, super smooth, velvety even. Easy drinker with no obtuse, sticky sugars that sometimes burden brown ales. Very nice. (#4975, 4/7/2013)

Bottle. Poured a slightly clear, but mostly dark brown color with a nice small off-white head. Aroma was caramel notes, some nut notes, sweet character along with a touch of bitter chocolates. Flavor was roasted malts, caramel character, nutty. Very mild, some light, bitter roasted notes. Found it more enjoyable than expected.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sent my way from Hayduke with whom it was shared via Facebook chat. This is dark mahogany with a nice creamy light tan colored head that lasts nicely. Nose does not jump out but offers chocolate and raisins. A nice creamy feel. Flavor is chocolate, roasted notes, dark fruit, and very mild spice. The finish is gentle fruit. Occasionally some hop bitterness shows up and occasionally the hops were lighter fruit. This is one that I could drink plenty of. Nice sweetness with all of that malt and they hops add interesting aspects.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dryish and malty with light molasses, chalk, cherry and nut. The flavor was tart and malty with notes of nut, cherry caramel and a touch of licorice. The finish was long, tangy, fruity and nutty with some lingering bread. Medium body. Solid.
