3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance was cloudy brown with just a thin head. Aroma was mellow bready/toast and caramel sweetness with a hint of smoke. Taste with very smooth with a nice nuttiness at first finishing with a nice sweet caramel. Mouthfeel is what made this beer as it was a nice medium and smooth body with just a hint of carbonation to tease the tongue. Let this warm up to 55 degrees.

On tap - Pours deep brown with a thin tan head. Nose is huge waves of malt, light smokiness, and some sweet toffee notes. Taste is the same, with a nice bready maltiness, peaty smokiness, and a touch of heat. Really bold. Pretty thick and well carbonated.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an amber with a thinner light beige head. Aroma contains caramel, roasted malts, and brown sugar. It isnít bad, but it is very faint. The taste picks up from here. Much more caramel appears, along with nuts, molasses, a bit of apple, and some slight smokiness. Medium bodied with a actually a more thick texture, along with some softer carbonation. Aftertaste is nuttier more than anything. Outside of the subtle aroma, everything seems to be done pretty well here. I just think that this one isnít for me.

Great aromas of bread and caramel sweetness. Taste is similar as the scent, sweetness is hidden well with a bit of spice, great mouth feel.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured into a tulip. Wonderful dark amber with very little head. Dissipates quickly to a ring around the glass. Nice malty smell. I get a little biscuit too. Taste is mostly malt with a little caramel and a clean finish. Well carbonated. Very easy to drink. It would be no problem to sit and work through a few of these.

Bottle from Liz. Pours dark amber with a slight beige head. Aromas of heavily roasted malt and some floral hop. Full bodied. Flavor is roasted malt, lightly smoky, almost peaty, with floral hop. Itís almost sweet, not too bitter. Somehow it all comes together in an amazing taste treat. Very, very, tasty.
