Decent sweet malt aroma. Some burnt caramel. Dark brown sugar color and a medium palate. Flavors were earthy malt with a slight sweetness. Strange aftertaste.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Secret Santa Summer 15. Thanks! Kind of a terrible label. Dark amber, large foamy tan head. Good retention. Aroma of toffee malts, earthy hops. The taste is toffee, caramel, earthy hops, a bit of a tart fruitiness. Medium bodied.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours murky, light brown with a tan colored, mostly dissipating head. Beer smells malty with caramel and bread notes. Taste is initially lightly bitter. It finishes sweet. A good beer but not destined to be one of my favs. Probably pretty good for the style. Prost!

Deep Russet brown with amber highlights, tan head. Nose is caramel, coco and a hint of cherries. Sweet. Middle is dark honey, dark malt. Finish is a little chewy, a little boozy, and somewhat drier than the rest.
