On tap @ Schlafly Tap Room, Lambert Airport edition. Chestnut colored pour with a khaki head. Plenty of toasted grain and some roast. Nice bit of cocoa powder in there. Kind of floral, some bread, and a bit of earth. Flavor has a moderate bitterness to it. Only a touch of coffee, but good chocolate and roasted malt. Sweet toasted malt and a bit of molasses. Slight floral hop bite and a bitter, earthy finish.

Pint at StL airport. Dark amberbrown with an uneven head. Not a big aroma but there is chocolate, figs, and some earth. The flvor begins with that and with a bit of warming a nice bitter citrus hop profile emerges. Some astringency is noted. A nice beer is rather filling.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear amber brown with a 4" head that takes its time dropping to a thick cover, waves of lace. Taste is pure simple malt that rolls through the palate without adding anything. Light bittering arrives just in time to balance at the finish. Uncomplicated, but decent enough as a session beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin tan head thats short lived with little lacing. Clear, brown in color. Nose of slight caramel malts and minerals. Body is lightly medium with a soft carbonation. Dry malts, earth and slight hop undertones of pine and caramel, little nutty. Dry, quick finish that toasts up as it warms. Been bangin a few of these lately, not sure why either. Decent little quaff. Can from statelinliquors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 12/29/13 from a 12oz can purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours clear dark auburn with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is caramel, vanilla, and chocolate malt with pine resin and grassy hops. The flavor is almost the same, with the resin hops really shining through, along with the chocolate and vanilla malt taking more of a back seat, and even less caramel. The body is light with lively carbonation and a medium hoppy and bitter chocolate finish.

Way too bitter, I can’t even get any malty goodness through the overly bitter beer taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear dark amber with a full antique lace head. Toasted malt aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttery, nutty with a slight vegetal character (celery). Hop bitterness, though not over the top, is pronounced. Good, but I prefer an English brown.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a deep amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose smells like bitter oatmeal and a touch of toasted malts. On the palate its reads closer to a amber but has a strangely malty grassy backbone that is strange. Slightly metallic, strangely bitter stale grain, doesn’t read as hop bitterness but more of a cardboard and old stale malts.
