3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typical doughy stink associated with alts, fruity notes too. Clear dark copper, two finger tan head. Dry, bready sweetness, reminds me of raspberries for some reason. Low carbonation, very smooth and downable. This brewer has been around for years and only make this and a couple other types. Pretty good stuff..cold weather session beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh. Pours brown with an initial foamy head that lasts for a bit. Aromas are nutty, English breakfast tea, maybe grass, maybe some caramel. Tastes are mostly sweet, with some limited bitterness. Fairly light in the mouth with lots of carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Enjoyed on tap at The Thirsty Moose. A bold tasting malt. Sweet malt in the aroma. Very dark red and lacey. A bit watery. Not so drinkable, maybe another place another time would yield better results.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly nutty aroma in front of plenty of noble hops along with some caramel apple and dried fruit accents. Hazy, Coca-Cola appearance under a thin foam of off-white. Dry, nutty flavour, like dry-roasted nuts, with a decent amount of bitterness and faint, spicy hops. Fairly weak in flavour, overall. Notes of tobacco and dried fruit. Light body, moderate carbonation, bitter nutty finish.

Cask at GBBF. Clear dark brown beer. Softish palate. Sourish malt with an odd spicy tone. Finishes dry. A bit odd.

Dark amber/cider color; Light to medium body; Aroma of toasted malt, some caramel, & spice; Flavor of slight roasted sweet malt, caramel, hops, and some fruit; Finish is slightly bitter and a little tart; Overall, a bit thin - decent I guess for a session brew.

Pours a deep amber color. Clear. Aroma is of malts, slight skunk, burnt rubber, and maybe some eggs. Flavor is very mild. I can pick up malts, bark, hops, rye, and grain. Leaves a bitter weed finish. Very let down by these guys.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Barley Pub: This one poured a clear, dark caramel color. There was a small off-white head that didn’t linger or leave any lacing. It has a lighter aroma. Some caramel notes, some toasted malts also. The taste is nice. Some toasted caramel malt, with a very faint chocolate malt taste. Slightly bitter, with a bit of a dry finish. Nice.

On draft @ the Barley Pub in Dover, NH. Served in a pint glass. Deep brown in color, small head with very light lace. Malt nose with a bit of earthy tones. Caramel, roasted malt and light hops. Has a light sweet caramel finish. Drinkable any season of the year. Not the best in the style I have tried but, respectable.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
6 pack of 12oz bottles picked up in North Conway, NH.
Whenever I travel I seek out a beer or two that I can not get here in Mass. I sipped on a couple of these by the fire, and it was a welcome break from drinking Guinness. The pour is dark brown with an off-white head. The flavor is cashews, brown sugar, and a spicy alcohol finish. The hops are present as it warms up a bit. I was expecting Double Bag or better, but this falls short with a thin body. The flavors are decent and it is very drinkable.
