OK, so Rocky Blie couldn’t have his own beer but the rooneys can, go figure. Smooth mild easy going for the most part. Pour is quite dark, enough to be considered a dark beer. Pretty good fun for a lager lover, quite beery but not over the top in any way. Aroma hints like the friendly sweat of a girlfriend. Finish is mild malt or possibly lagerized dull industrial hops. Overall good beer experience.

6 pack from Giant Eagle. Pours a deep mahogany hue with a small white head. The aroma is light caramel and toasted malts. The flavor is a sweet mix of chocolates and caramel, some dryness. Pretty clean. Almost porter-like at times.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft... Clear dark-copper ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aromatic standouts are toasted malts, dates and a pleasant nuttiness. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with prickly carbonation. The flavor presents notes of toasted malt and caramel up front; maple and medium bitterness on the backside. Lengthy, minerally, fairly bitter finish. Go Steelers!

Dry, toasty aroma with some nuts. Clean label, standard US longneck, keystone cap. Clear, dark brown beer, thin lacy head. Flavor mirrors the aroma -- dry, toasty/roasty, lightly acidic, pleasant bittering. Session weight, long roasty aftertaste gets a little clingy. A little sweetness and raisin as it warms. Not bad. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

From the 120z bottle fresh from Penn Brewery direct. Coming from Penn you expect something good and this ale stands on all points. No compromise on ingredients or taste is evident and the results are pleasing on first impression. Pours well with a balanced aroma and a rich foamy head. Perfect coloration on the appearance. Maybe I’m just partial to the spirit of Pittsburgh that permeates this selection, but I’d gladly revisit this tasty beverage more than once with friends who might miss this limited offering.

I had fairly low expectations for this one but it ended up being fairly pleasant. +++ Sampled on draft at D’s in Monroeville this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish and malty with light fruity hops and a bit of bread. The flavor was semi sweet bread, caramel, nut and wood with undertones of faint vague tangy fruity hops. Surprisingly complex. The finish was long with notes of wood, bread and nut. Medium body. Exceeded expectations.

On tap at a pub in Palm Beach Airport. Pours dark brown with reddish hues and a medium, tan head. The aroma is toffee and caramel malts, light earthy and floral hops. The flavor is sweet and malty, with faint bitterness in the finish. The palate is medium to heavy, sticky, and a fairly astringent. Overall, this is a malt bomb, with a fair hop profile for balance. Not too bad.
