2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pours with a large tan head, the beer is a clear maroon color, pretty dark though
Aroma: smoky, faint,
Taste: coffee hints, smokey, light malty caramel flavor
Palate: light mouthfeel, lively carbonation, very very faint coffee aftertaste
Overall: a tough beer to describe, very light and subtle body with hints of coffee is the best way I can describe it, decent but not too special

Malt heavy flavor with hints of coffee. Every drink is almost the same followed with a dry finish. It starts out good. However to flavor gets old really quick. This was good for one session at least to try. This is not necessarily a bad brew. Just not the type I would enjoy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark brown with a medium off white head. The aroma was mostly bready malts and somewhat grassy. The taste is rather dull with this beer. There is no bitterness and is watery with a light mouth feel. The taste is mostly brown bread and some sweetness (caramel) on the end.

Though a bit smokey... This one is an enjoyable beer. Good looking and kind of reminds me of a sweet, smokey, octoberfest beer.
