4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a very clear and rich brownish red with a medium light tan head. The aroma blends roasted malts, caramel malts, hints of coffee grounds, and a smidgeon of lager yeast. The taste is really nice blend of mild umami, slight sourness, and slight bitterness with an aftertaste that is really malty (roasty and bready). The palate has a slick texture, average carbonation, and a medium body.

This is one of my top 2-3 beers. Great caramel taste. Brownish color with great aroma. Broad distribution and pricing also helps.
