3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a clear dark amber with brilliant clarity. A 1.5 finger eggshell head that sinks slowly. Descent lacing.
S - Doughy bread, sweet toffee malts-lightly toasted.
T - Dry grain mixes with a semi muted caramel malt background. Some fruity notes come out as it sits and has bread dough around the edges. Some faint tannins in the finish.
M - Creamy and dry.
This a good all around kick back beer. Dryer than the nose lets on. Easy drinking.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
another Thanksgiving Day hosted well and right... APPEARANCE: cloud-evoking white head; solid dark amber body; slow, steady effervescence; nice, hazy lacing... AROMA: slightly fragrant with a soft, mostly malty bready dough scents... PALATE: medium-bodied; monolithic, flat mouthfeel; a bit creamy; drinkable, but not distinguished...TASTE: a bit of toffee mixes with malts to create a rather dry, basic ale--little to deliberate on or over...OVERALL: not a bad beer for talking over or complimenting hors d’oeuvres pre-meal; after desert, not much of a motivator or nightcap...

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Excellent appearance, good head and lacing. Faint aroma.
Mild hoppy taste with nice sweet finish aftertaste. Nearly full bodied but not filling. A good imported ale.

The soft aroma of roasted malt, some barley. The head is white, rather small and milky. The body is dark red. A light taste of malt, the finish is dry and soft bitter. The body is light and a little bit creamy with a normal carbonation.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear amber ale, with a tiny head floating on top. No smell? Very distant aroma of yeast is what i’m getting. Watery taste for starters. Cologne and metallic and perhaps a little bit of hoppy bitter. Thin watery body with medium carbo. Not my kind of ale. Once, twice won’t happen.

Just a normal irish stout that has great body and head. I think i had it on Nitrous which is probably better but pretty standard beer that i am sure i have had before this rating.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a very strong palate, but a nice taste, almost like a very thin version of a stout with an undertone I can’t quite place. (Apple, maybe?) Not an everyday favorite, but tasty.
