3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Knightly Spirits. Clear, deep amber pour with a large frothy tan head. Nose is sweet caramel malts, nuttiness, fig newtons, herbs and flowers. Flavor not as sweet as I was expecting. Modest caramel, more nuttiness, raisins and a floral, earthy bitterness. Lighter carbonation and a medium light body. Pretty solid and very drinkable.

Bottle. Opaque deep brown pour with a monster light tan head. Bready, toasty malts dominate this one, good heft on the palate with a bit of carbonation zing. Very nice brew - rich and enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyable. Bready malt aroma and a dark amber head with a thick white foam that took a while to dissipate. Medium bodied palate with lower carbonation. It had a very different malty presence in the taste that might have had some spice. Hops were barely discernible. Not a common style for me and a pleasant surprise.
