3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint can. Chocolate, toffee, slight smoke, tannins, toast. A quick nip of hops on the front end, and a multi-layered malt experience follows, tumbling in waves over the palate. About a two out of five on the sweetness scale, and as it seems like there are a lot of sweet beers out there this year, I wouldn’t say this one is overly sweet. Enjoyed it very much.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pint can into a glass. Deep ruddy, copper pour. Sweet caramel and dark fruit aroma. Taste is woody, cola, dark fruits, vanilla, sugar. Not my favorite style...and this is a good example of all the things I dislike about it.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 ounce can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear copper/brown color with a half inch off-white head that went away quickly. There’s a small amount of lacing left behind on the glass. The brew smells like toffee, nuts, and toasted malt. It tastes like toffee, nuts, peat, and caramel/toasted malt. Mouthfeel/body is low/medium, it’s smooth and has moderate carbonation. It is pretty easy to drink. At $11.49 a 4-pack I wouldn’t buy it again at that price, but I do think it’s a brew that’s worth trying.
