Draught @ Falcon Tavern - Poured a dk brown with a small tan head...aroma is malt forward with notes of toast...flavour follows, malt bomb with a wonderful balance of roasted grain, slight bitterness and bread...not a killer, but a pleasant surprise...

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 On cask at the Front Door. Pours a dark murky brown with a small beige head. A light roasted malt dominates the nose. The flavor is mostly shovels of dirt, wood, and some chocolate perhaps. The body was very thin, and it was fairly watery, but this is still a good beer. Seemed to me to be really natural, like something we should be drinking around the campfire.

On tap at the brewery next to steak and mashed potatoes. This was their best beer I sampled. A nice transition of flavors from sip to finish. Lots of caramel malt in the flavor. Thick palate - enjoyable all around especially considering the food choice.

Dark chestnut cherry color. Clean, nice sticky head. Nose is lightly roasty with some light malt esters. Watery body and a light raisiny flavor. Good but lacking a pronounced character.
