3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
At 2012 Avery Strong Ale Fest. Dark dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma has some brown malts and chocolaty esters with a light pale malt undertone. Taste is sweet with toffee and roasted caramalt tones, with some earthiness, not much bitterness or hop presence but it isnít cloying. Just a dusty brown ale, lacking body.
