3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fourth bottle out of a six-pack procured in Vermont, decided to make it my first taste of beer after mowing the lawn today. Poured aggressively into the pint glass, a vigorous head similar to Guinness. Aroma of cocoa and toffee, noted both today and upon first bottle I opened earlier in the week. Sweet but toasty, biscuity, reminds me slightly of a shortbread cookie, and I keep going back to chocolate/cocoa flavoring as I taste it. No detectable heat from the alcohol, I agree with the deScription, great malt depth and drinks like a session beer.

Coffee notes dominate, some molasses and a bit of brown sugar as well. A bit of nuttiness. Kinda like a cross between a brown ale and a porter. Can’t decide if I like this one or not.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 12oz. Hazy copper body with a thin, off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with caramel and woody hints. Its relatively robust malty/hoppy taste carries woody, brown sugar, and some fruity notes. Ends with a moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Not bad.

Pours a dark amber from the tap, lots of malty sweetness, caramel nose, a little strong alcohol. Good beer.
