3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 Sample at Fat Head’s in North Olmsted. This brew is a dark brown color with some amber around the edges. Medium light beige head that dissipates steadily, and stringy lacing. Smoked malt aroma with notes of hops. Medium body with a smoky character and flavors of roasted malt and hops. The finish is somewhat smoky and leaves an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Craft. Pours dark brownish black with off-white head. Nose is heavy rauchy dark malt, some chocoff. Has a medium palate, not super cfomplex, but the rauchy flavor is excellent. Not as dense and powerful as the Aecht offerings, but very good, with a smooth finish.
