1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 2/20
Massive gusher from a well-chilled bottle. Of the remaining beer, good caramel notes, malt-forward, very smooth. Just wish more of the beer would have stayed in the bottle, rather than making me mop it up off the floor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark amber with a big beige head. Bready and a bit boozy to the nose. Smooth mouth feel, a bit sweet then a slight bitterness on the swallow. Pleasant contrast with a lingering finish. Haven’t had it in a while. It’s as good as I remember it. Recommended.

Sampled at great taste. Clear amber. Kind of bourbon looking. It is nutty and fruity. Clean and easy to drink. Earth. Just a little fruit.

Had it at The Pickled herring inside sven and olles in grand Marais, MN. I got it because it was on tap. It had a good brown color and went well with the pizza.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Clear brownish-amber color with a medium thin foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Roasted nuts and malt in the nose. Light body with flavors of roast malt, peanuts and slight hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Just average overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pouring dark reddish, maybe light brown, amber. Very small wispy white head, minimally lasting. Aroma is malty, sweet. Caramel. Toffee. Bready. Fruity. Light body, perhaps a bit thin. Finish is fairly dry, nutty. OK, but unexciting. Easy drinking enough.

Aroma is malty, a little bitter, caramel, some slight fruit. Taste is a little too bitter for my liking but otherwise similar to the aroma and fairly nice
