Bottle. Man this is a great beer. Taste is like a nutty, malt treat with slight hop undertones. Color is a beautiful amber like the soon at the end of a hot, humid day. Aroma, malty with a great balance. Just good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very malty smell, roasted malt, some chocolate. The small white fizzy head has a short duration, the body is dark red. The first taste is nice malty, then the chocolate shines through. The finish is light bitter. The body is medium strong, the texture is at first creamy, thenquite dry with a normal carbonation.
