3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Voodoo / Homestead PA --- Hazy brown color, beige head that drops to a rim, streaks of lace. Taste is sweet brown sugar and malt that grows as it moves through medium fizz to very light hops in a medium finish. Big, malt centered, but not heavy. I like it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy dark brown, 1 finger tan head. creamy lactose aroma, sweet, licorice and cinnamon. mmm, this is well done. creamy finish, lactose sugar for sure. a robustness of it that hits you nice but then falls flat at the end. I get some christmas spice but at the end of a day it ’s a brown ale, although a very well done one
