3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewpub on 3/23. Pours dark orange/amber with a slight beige head. Malty aroma. Med body. Flavor is rather heavy malt - possible touch of smoke? Or maybe a little earthy? There’s a little hop. Finishes on the non-dry side, but it drinks pretty well tho.

Personal Milestone: California rating #200 (out of 3423)!!!
The body’s a fairly murky brown color and it sports a sudsy beige head. This aroma is rich and malty, sweet, and has hints of smoke. The flavor, too, is quite malty and has some caramel, a bit of pome, and a lightly smokey finish. Quaffable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A muddy milk chocolate brown. This has a strongly malty, caramel-laden aroma with light hints of tobacco smoke. Flavor is rather sweet and imbued various shades of crystal malt. This is quite sweet to finish and finishes out with very little bitterness in line with the theme of being a malt-dominated beer.
