3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours medium red-brown with a 3-finger creamy beige head that has awesome retention. Aroma is lot of rich caramel, light roast, crusty and doughy white bread, wood and earth notes and a hint of mild chocolate. Flavor is caramel, bread crust, sweet grain, sweet granola, mild chocolate, earth, light citrus, hay, grass and roast. Finishes with dark caramel, sweet grain and a little grain. Medium bodied with a light creaminess, somewhat dry finish and pleasantly mild carbonation. This is a really nice brew, tasty and rich, but not too heavy on the palate.

12 oz bottle from Crystal Liquor Barrel. Deep copper color with lots of head. Very nice aroma, notes of nuts and caramel. Flavor also very solid with more nuts and caramel, malty and sweet. Medium mouthfeel, a bit chewy (in a good way) with a sweet finish.

Nice caramel color,small white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind,the aroma was mildly caramel and malty.The flavor was a once in a lifetime flavor,meaning you only want the flavor once in a lifetime.Yeah yeah it had the usual malty cand caramle taste but it was weak as hell.Overall i wouldn’t wish this brew on my worst enemy.......well maybe i would just for laughs.

Sampled at a beer tasting at a Hy Vee Wine & Spirits. Considering it’s Schell, this really wasn’t too bad and almost on style.

One of my favorite beers of the spring season, especially on tap. Very malty beer with hints of chocolate and roasted nuts. Absolutely delicious.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a brown color with thin, white film head. Aroma is a mix of caramel, very light citrus, some light notes of chocolate and heavier roasted malts and a light grainy hint as well. Flavor starts a slightly smokey chocolate, moves into caramel middle and ends with a very sweet malty note with some like bitterness. Carbonation is very fine and the beer is a moderate density. Overall a good offering that is very drinkable.
