3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"you can taste the orange peel more than the coriander, the smoky black patent malt almost taking over the flavor and aroma...like a slightly funky good black lager more than a wit. points for uniqueness. this beer was stout dark but light-medium bodied, and had a lot going on, but was still drinkable. the mix of flavors didn’t quite come together as much as i’d hoped as some of the wit character was a bit overpowered, but it tasted good. dry finish and feel. aroma a bit weak and unassuming, otherwise a good beer."

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Amber beauty of a beer. Awesome malty nose with the promised caramel-nut-malt heaven-on-the-tongue. Perfect tease of a bitter end. I think this is the closest to perfect I’ve found.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from the singles rack at Binny’s (Orland Park, IL). Poured a dark hazed carmel color, small off white head. Malty nose with slight spice. Tate is similar, bready and biscuity w/ carmelized malt notes. Slight spice in the finish, light bodied, maybe even thin, but very sessionable. Cheers!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Hackomal over on the other site. Thanks! Pours bright golden amber with a thin head. The aroma is sweet and toasty with hints of earthy hops. Caramel, toast with a earthy grass/peppery finish. Pretty true to style IMO.
