3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a dark amber body, clear, and topped by a minimal sized light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is roasted with some caramel and hints of bonfire. Some hoppy hints in the far back. It’s full to medium bodied, with a tad too much carbonation, semi-dry. It’s roasted and lightly burnt in the flavor, some hoppy hints and bitterness in the far back. A bit sweet in the finish. Overall, quite decent, but perhaps a bit sweet. 130828

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle at a restaurant in Houston, 6/4/13
Aroma: The nose is light, with some malty notes, it leans toward the sweet side, with spice notes
Appearance: The pour is an amber color with an average sized, frothy head on it
Flavor: The taste is pretty similar to the nose, kinda sweet, a bit of hop, it works okay at best
Palate: The body is light-medium, and it has an alright, but not exciting mouthfeel to it
I wasn’t really that impressed by this one. It is kind of like a mediocre Amber. I wouldn’t rush back.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber color out of the bottle with a foamy beige head. Sweet caramel nose with some roasted grain notes. Brown sugar and some table sugar sweetness with some toasted white bread, burnt sugar and some dark pit fruit flavors. Nice roasted, almost smokey finish. This is very drinkable if a little sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of carmel, cocoa, toasted malt and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, toasted malt, cocoa and light earthiness with a smooth lingering cocoa finish. I had no idea what style this was when I rated it. I assumed it was a brown ale, nothing about it made me think Schwarzbier.
