3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cooper with little head and no lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, scotch, and banana. Taste is the same with a strong bitter cough syrup after taste. Might benefit from less alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler fill from Country Fresh Market on Beechmont. Crystal clear, moderately low carbonation. Very complex considering old school original type recipe and brewing method (guess I have gotten used to specialty grain recipes) - sweet, yet not cloying with just a hint of wood type dryness plus a bit of earthiness. Drink this at 55 to 60F to get the right experience from it - this was very plain and lifeless at 40 degrees and came to life as it warmed so if you drink straight from the tap without letting it warm, you are missing out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured dark cloudy ruby brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Pours a clear deep amber with a small off white head. The aroma has caramel with moderate sweetness, wood, light smoked notes and a hint of fruit. The flavor has toasted caramel, wood, light smoke with hints of peat and fruit. Not bad and the alcohol is pretty well hidden.

On tap. Clear red color. Little khaki head, fades to minimal. Nice big smokey flavor. Some earthy hop. Light bitter taste, nice sweetness. Little alcohol warmth. Good bit of tropical fruit. Bigger body. Light, crisp carbonation. Dry texture overall. I dig this

Draft to taster at Dutchís. Looks solid; a transparent brownish-orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and slightly boozy. Average on the palate. Solid.
