3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, straight from the can. If this beer was green Iíd have no idea. I assume its normal appearance so I gave it a 3 for that. Aroma is caramel malts, sugar/sweet with a hint of chocolate. Quite nice actually. Thats a 7. Beer is sweet, malty, no hops. Caramel/chocolate undertones. Pretty nice, smooth and easy drinker. Nothing spectacular. Probably a 6.5. I gave it a 6. Palate? I donít have a fucking palate. Its easy to drink. 3. No idea how this is rated so poorly. Its not great but its certain pretty good, especially for the style. 3.4-3.6

6 oz. from a pint can; from Keg Liquors (Clarksville). Aroma: Moderate almonds; moderate toast; a touch of tootsie roll. Appearance: Copper brown with soft carbonation holding up a scant tan head. Flavor: Combined malt notes with more chocolate for the duration; a light leaf tobacco hop presence comes out near the finish, which is semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Nice beer, and close enough to session strength to enjoy a few.

Draft in the tasting room. Pours a light apple cider brown bolor with a smidge of head. Big dry malty nose with a roasted nut character. Big toasted malt and toffee with plenty of nutty character in the finish. Medium body and dry. Tastey

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.25 A: Clear deep amber light brown color. One and a half fingers of nitro-esque beige head. Retention is below average and no lacing is left.
3.75 S: Nutty and toasty from the start like a good brown ale. Caramel and brown sugar. Crisp, clean maltiness. On the drier side, but still enough sweetness to hit the spot.
3.75 T: Like the nose this is crisp, clean, and tasty. Plenty of toastiness and caramel. Nuttiness underneath, dry grainy maltiness. Not as rich or as sweet as most of the style out there, but I donít think itís supposed to be. It works quite well for what it is.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth.
4.0 D: Super drinkable with a good taste.

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. Thereís 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, itís smooth and has moderate carbonation. It is pretty easy to drink. At $11.49 a 4-pack I wouldnít buy it again at that price, but I do think itís a brew thatís worth trying.
