3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on draft the medium brown color poured with large frothy head and it lingers for a bit. the aroma of nuts, malts caramels dominated the glass. something like i would make but the flavor was a little twisted. not matching the aroma. you could taste the malts and caramels and a little nut flavor. just didnt seem to match but it was decent enough.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a brown color with a huge tan head and almost a gushing bottle. Aroma of toffee and other lighter malts. Astringent malty flavor includes some chocolate and possibly some sweet hazelnut or vanilla. Light palate and very overcarbonated. Maybe I had a bad bottle, but I was rather disappointed.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the sugar land saucer. Really unimpressive. Clear brown with a fast fading beige head. Mild aroma of toast, sweet malt and faint nuts. Taste is malty, soapy, watery and slightly metallic. Medium-thin bodied, a little creamy and watery. Glad I didnít get a six pack.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Central Market. This beer pours a clear brown color which is a dark brown with touches of red. The head is tan and foamy.†
Aroma is caramel sweetness with a nutty nose. Slight roast and bitter. A decent nose.†
Flavor is a dry nutty taste with a roasty finish. A bit too dry I would say.
