3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: A beautiful dark brown pour with auburn highlights and topped by a finger of creamy beige head. Aroma is malty... sort of sweet, but nothing more stands out. Maybe some light toffee and chocolate. The flavor is where this brew thrives: Sweet and malty with citrus, caramel, and chocolate. Earthy with just a bit of citrus hops. Just a small amount of roast and nuts. Rich, but increadibly easy drinking. Pairs well with Reese’s Pieces.

This was a definite winner. Pours a dark brown with a quickly diminishing off-white head. Roasted hops and caramel flavor with a nice chocolaty caramel finish. The best schell brew by far!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 3+ year old bottle my dad had tucked in the back of his beer fridge. Had no aroma left. Taste was primarily of roast but had a light enough mouthfeel and low bitterness so it wasn’t overwhelming. Also some sweetness which made it go down better than I expected. However, nothing to write home about. Was pretty flat which I assume was due to the age of the bottle.
