Smells of malt, some roasted with a bit of a coffee smell in there as well. Taste is malty with a bitter middle and a sweet finish. Has a bit of a sloppy palate, reminiscent of a home brew made with malt extract. Light carbonation. Pretty full flavored. Overall a good beer. Wouldn't buy for home but would have after a day of snowboarding.

Pours opaque brown with amber highlights. Decent head retention. Easy drinking with a complex, malty mouthfeel. Finishes clean. Good brew.

Not that high of expectations but i gave it a go. Good alcohol content and pretty drinkable for 7.4 but it was very malty and basic with a pretty bland flavor profile.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a deep brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly. Aroma is faint with sweet malts, honey and some light piney hops. The taste starts with sweet caramel, honey and fruit. The malt character is a bit thin. The hops presence is mild but brings some balance towards the finish. Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation.

Pours red with ok head and lacing. Some barrel, some booze. Finishes sweet and bitter, wooden. Light palate, not a lot of integration here. On tap at Reservoir.
