3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at The Olde Depot. This one pours a dark brown color with a huge khaki head. The aroma has minerals and spice with some lightly roasted malt. A little florals and mint. The flavor has lots of baking spices, florals, a little caramel and roast. I’m picking up mostly clove, cinnamon and mint. The finish is dry and roasted with more of the spices. Decent, but not really my favorite style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle - odd to see a negative image of Nietzsche on the label. pours dark brown with khaki head and decent lacing. Nose is hay and makes me think of a Baltic porter. Flavor adds metal, caramel, some sort of roast and a something else that is bitter. Sweet and confusingly bitter. It is so tempting to talk about reevaluating values for the purposes of selling a f&%$ing beer.
