3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep copper with a slowly dissipating off white head. Carbonation is light. Aroma is sweet, with dark malt and light chocolate. Taste is very malty up front with a slight bitterness, which changes to toffee, butter, diacetyl, with a smooth firm finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I sampled a 12-ounce bottle. Bright, deep copper in color, and topped with a generous, creamy tan head, this beer sits beautifully in a tulip pint glass and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is all malt, saccharine and with a trace of alcohol. The bold, smooth and rich body begins with a deep and sugary palate entry that quickly builds to hazelnut, caramel and toffee flavors contributed by the double malt framework. Hop balance isn’t apparent until the finish, which is appropriately drying and ever-so-slightly spicy. Not surprisingly, owing the high ABV, there’s also a bit of alcohol warming in the finish that grows more apparent as the glass approaches room temperature.

On tap at Ortinos Northside. Pours a darker red amber with an average tan lacing head. Aroma was sweet and malty, caramel and a little nutty. Flavor was a nice sweet and malty smoothness. Alchol was non-detect.

Somewhat of a strong malt aroma. Light brown to copper in color. Very clear in appearance,with moderate carbonation and a slight head. Very easy going down, no bitterness or aftertaste. A very smooth overall mouthfeel. I consider this a good tasting beer with no harsh aftertaste. Will buy again.

There might be a more fitting beverage to celebrate the Steelers Superbowl win, but I guess this is close enough. Bottle thanks to Kramer17801. Smell is very malty and sweet. Like a thick, thick caramel that sticks to the nostrils. Flavor is slightly burnt malt taste and very sweet again. I do not detect much floral or fruity notes at all, but its all about sweet dark hearty malt. This is a fine beer for such a lovely snowy night.
