4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at brewpub. I have had before at pub with an AKA of Karma. Dark amber with large head. Complex good aroma that was well worth the brew alone. Medium to full body. Good flavor that was also well balanced of malt and rye with medium bitter finish. Very good brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is an intriguing blend that works pretty well. Clear dark amber color with a thin off-white head that has pretty good lasting power. Aroma of malt and rye. Medium-bodied with a nice bitter character with underlying rye and malt flavors. The finish is lingering and lightly bitter with a hint of spice. Getting to have Thirsty Dog brews on tap is usually cause for celebration for me anyway but this is a good anniversary beer either way.
