3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Murky red-brown body, medium to thin pale tan head, soapy lacing. Nose is lightly roasted/earthy with mellow bitter-sweet chocolate that hints at sine citrus and some honey-like sweetness. Flavor is similar with a general washed-out vibe to it. Lacking the density of maple syrup which I would expect in the flavor. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, slightly hollow finish. Oily on the tongue. Slight bitterness and minerality.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber with brown and ruby hues...medium tan head. Aroma has light yeasty and earthy notes...very mild chocolate...faint funk/tart and spice. Flavor has some dark chocolate wrapped around yeasty spicy notes...not getting much in the way of maple syrup here but it may add to the creamy/silky mouthfeel a bit? Medium and the finish is roasty with dry dark chocolate and a bit of a nice burnt note.
