3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Stewarts. Murky brown in color... not what I was expecting? Weak aroma of some toasty malts.... Taste is the same... malty. Very sessionable but kind of boring... Overall not bad.... probably a good example of what the beer should of tasted like 200 years ago

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear brownish red color with a large creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and caramel. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, tart fruity notes, nuts, a faint bit of chocolate, and leafy hops. Thin medium bodied. Nice beer. Especially at that ABV.
