2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber/mahogany, decent head. Aroma has plenty of malt up front. Nutty toffee and light chocolate, nothing else. Flavor has the same malt sweetness, with some cinnamon and clove? maybe nutmeg? Have no idea what that is doing in here? Again nothing special.

Deep reddish mahogany color with a small tan head. Mild nutty/malty aroma with a slightly metallic tang. Flavor is roasted malt and hazelnuts with some brown sugar and a bit of herbal hops. Decent roasty finish but a bit on low end of medium bodied. The best of the Schell sampler pack and worth seeking out.
