3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served from bottle into a shaker. Pours a dark brown with a minimal off-white head. Maintained good lacing thoughout. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt and nutty notes. The flavor followed the nose with light roasted malt and nutty characters. It was light on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this was not a bad brew. However, the flavors of this one were quite muted for some odd reason, as it warmed up they came out a little more but were still not pronounced. Still a nice brown ale that is worth trying.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy and particulate brown with a huge, frothy light beige head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is nutty, light chocolate, toasty and bready malt, dates, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is medium hops and moderate bitterness, sweet chocolate, toasty, nutty, and bready malt with light date notes and a dry finish. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. This is a bit over-carbonated.

Best part of the beer... an impressive head. Light hop aroma, taste is slight hop unbalance and astringent grain very light. Thin on the tongue, not much body. Light sweetness. Craft beer Blah.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
10/8/13. 12oz bottle from a mix 12pk from Warehouse. Opened this and a Patriot Pale Ale and they were both gushers. Ugh. Original pour was about an inch of hazy amber beer with 5 inches of tan head, even after a careful pour. Eventually it settles and we have a smaller head that fizzes away fast. Lightly tart, dusty apple aroma, like fresh, warm apple cider, with a bit of cardboardy caramel. Mediocre flavor as well, apples and caramel with a dash of cardboard. This really reminds me of inexperienced extract homebrew.

Pours almost a ruby red when held to light. Took me 5 minutes just to get it poured, lots of fluffy head. Smells of nut, caramel, and malt, the malt being the strongest. Tastes sweet, with caramel and dark chocolate with a roasty finish on it. Not very dense, pretty smooth actually. Not bad but nothing stands out to make it fantastic either. Not bad overall though for my first RJ Rocker brew.
