3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Single bottle, Total Wine. Very dark brown with a long-lasting, foamy tan head. Good blend of mats and citrus on the nose - slightly more citrus/grass than chocolate. Flavor is the opposite - more chocolate/dried fruit than hops, although still closely balanced. Big hoppy finish. Fairly creamy mouthfeel. Very good example of the style.

Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a dark opaque brown with a thick layer of light tan head. Aroma of hops intermingled with roasted malts. Taste almost exactly the same as the nose but the malts taste almost burned and linger.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Deep brown to near black pour with a tremendous, lasting brown head. Laces. The aroma has a keen mixture of dark roasted malts and more earthy hops. Yet the taste comes across as far more piney and bitter with the hops. Medium body. Nice tribute beer.
