3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a redish/brown with a small light tan creamy head that was mostly diminishing and had good lacing.The aroma was of roasted caramel malts, a sweet leathery yeast, mild resin hops with notes of coffee. It tasted mildly sweet, smooth and malty at first and finished about the same except for a nice dose of coffee at the end with the flavor lingering a nice long time. Mouthfeel was medium in body and oily in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall a VERY tasty bitter.

Roasted malt is most noticable to begin with before a slightly fruity character and nice bitterness. I’ve had a lot of this over the years and although nothing to get terribly excited about, it’s certainly a nice drop.

11.2 oz bottle from Brewmaster’s in Wilson. Dark orange (almost red) pour, murky clarity with mostly diminishing white head. Virtually no lacing. Sweet (light fruit), dry citrus, malt (as it warmed) aroma. Almost tastes like a cider. Very dry on the palate. Not for me, but glad I tried it.
