2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of nuts (of course), caramel, toffee and malt. Medium-bodied; Strong nuts in the flavours, apricots, spice and a bit of malt dash the beer. Aftertaste shows some sweetness, but mainly the bitterness of the nuts. Overall, not a good beer - the worst of the lot for me. I sampled this beer on draught at Tampa Bay Brewing Company’s Brewpub in Tampa (Ybor City), Florida on 10 November 2007.

Cask @ TBBC.
Pours deep amber, with thick beige head.
Aroma is hoppy and grainy.
Taste is grainy with some spices and malts, light hoppy aftertaste with some sweet honey?
Some nice toffee/coffee roastiness.
The cask gives the beer some extra resinous and light fruity (apple) note.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ brewery. Pours a clear deep copper with somewhat creamy tan head. The aroma is sweet with caramelized malts, malt astringency and pale malts. The taste hits first with a streak of malt astringency that ties into roasted malts, a hint of caramelized malts, faint chocolate malts and mild charred – burnt – cindered malt dust. That last part could be the chocolate malts I taste. This seems to be a nice brown. The malt astringency has its place but here it could be slightly reduced. But that may be getting too picky.
