3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared at GregFest 2013 from a brown bomber bottle into a nonic half pint glass. It poured a nice clear reddish brown colour. Aromas and flavours of a bland dark ale plus faint cacao nibs and coffee. Not deeply flawed, but unimpressive.

12 oz bottle. Dark brown with a splotchy head. Nose is cocoa, coffee, cinnamon and vanilla. Creamy medium body with a brisk buzz. Taste is coffee bean then dark roast. The cinnamon and vanilla add a nice sweetness finishing with earthy cocoa nibs.

Aroma makes me think of chili peppers, but its actually the cinnamon I think. Fresh Coffee beans and vanilla show up on the front of the flavor. The cinnamon has a strong showing on the middle, and finishes with cocoa. Not as enjoyable as last year.

Tap. Dark pour with off white head. Smells of dark malts and spices. Very complex flavor of spices along with the dark malts.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with big tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and peppers. Taste of peppers, chocolate, malt, and coffee. This medium bodied brew has so much going on but in a good way. I enjoyed these Reunion Ales.

Shmaltz makes their name from producing creative, complex and ultimately tasty beers and this is no different. Definitely has some vanilla aroma and the cocoa and cinnamon comes through in the aftertaste.
