2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can. Pours brown with a medium creamy light tan head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is nutty chocolate malts and cola with some leathery bourbon.
The flavor is sweet figgy cola with some roast chocolate malt and a bit of a bitter bourbon finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.
Overall, OK - too much sweet cola and bourbon for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear deep brown hue with a thin bubbly white cap. Smooth earthy and slightly leathery nose with a wee bit of German alt maltiness. Smooth and drinkable with a bit of smokey black malt and clean oak tones. Not shabby. Earthy sweet but deceptively drinkable and just smokey enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2009 On draught at the brewpub. This brew is a brownish-orange color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of burnt malt, caramel and hops. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, sweet caramel and a touch of dark chocolate. The finish is roasty with a bittersweet chocolate and hops aftertaste. Decent all around.

Drank it at Wynkoop from the tap (well in a glass). A pleasant, well-hopped but smooth and flavorful ale. Malt flavors got better as it warmed up - I ordered it while I had a stout and let it warm up!
