3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown from tap with an inch of foam. Nice caramel notes on the tongue as well as a touch of molasses. There’s something about the aroma which wafts up through the nostrils. Smooth peat like taste on the tongue. Clean finisher. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber color, bottle poured. Not a huge aroma; maybe some caramel malt. Med-lite sweetness, slight bitter. Med-lite body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Man is this smooth! Great palate. Creamy caramel malt flavors punciate this beer. Well done

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep russet topped with an inch or so of light brown head. The aroma is sweet malts, caramel, a touch of chocolate and a tiny hint of roast coffee, just lingering in the background is the merest hint of earthy spice. Tastewise again the malts dominate, sweet caramel and chocolate mainly, though without being overly sweet. Nice medium body and good to drink.
