3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky brown with a quickly dissipating tan topper. Heavy aroma of nuts, molasses, toffee, caramel, sweet and sticky in every way imaginable. Taste is sweet, sticky and malty as well. Nuts, caramel, toffee though it finishes up a bit weird and a touch dry.

Sample from the girls at Plaza Liquors in Tucson, thanks! Clear brown, small tan head. Aroma of caramel. Taste resembles a sweet scotch ale. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear brownish pour - minimal, soda-like lace - roasty nose, with notes of hazelnut, toffee, toasted bread - medium sweet, with a fair amount of balancing hop bitterness uncharacteristic of the style, but it works - caramelized sugars - a touch of raisin and date - burnt grains - hints of roasted nuts - moderate acidity through the middle - finishes a bit like burnt caramel corn, which is a bit of a turn off - decent, but the finish derails it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear deep amber, thin off-white head, some lacing. Malt aroma with a hint of pine lurking in the background. Balanced taste with a nod toward the sweet side. A bit thin on the palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle.
Clear mohagany, with a thin tan head and patchy lace.
Roasty, nutty, sweet aroma, a little burnt sugar and hints of caramel.
Flavor is slightly sweet, touch of roasted malt and carmelized sugar.
Finish has a slight burnt sugar quality, but not enough to detract

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours red-amber with a creamy off-white head that leave some spotty lacing. Aroma is caramel (almost burnt), molasses, nuts, and light smoke. Flavor shows the same with an additional cherry cola aspect. Overall body is moderately sweet, light to moderately bitter, and finishes with some nice warming alcohol. I did a double take when I realized it came from Utah.

Pours a darkish amber. Very tasty and smooth with a bit of kick. Has notes of fruit and Carmel. Drinkable and worth another. Thumbs up on this one.
