2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First of all, the chilled glass is really too much! After a lengthy wait for hte beer to cool the medium tan head had disappeared. Dark ruby/brown. Nutty aroma. Nutty roasted malt, and medium to light hoppiness. Medium-light body. Not offensive or anything (other than the frozen glass) but just there.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep garnet. Clear, with a light tan foam. Nice toffee aroma, sweet with a mild hop odor. Nice body, well carbonated, smooth. Raisiny, bread, and nuts with some sweetness. Slightly bitter with a mild after taste. Goes well with Cheddarwurst.
