Dark ruby almost brown pour from Roar in Allentown. Aroma of malt, cloves, spice, caramel, bread. Flavor is heavy on the malt, slightly sweet and a bit spicy. Certainly mild. Low ABV but the high malt content prevents it from being a true sessionable ale.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark caramel color with an off-white head that settles to a film, some lacing. Aroma of toasted malts & some sweetness. Medium body, taste of toasted malt with almost no hop presence. The toasted flavor continues through the finish with a little bitterness. Not crazy about this one, but not bad...average.

[on tap at Local, PHI airport]
Toasty toffee and roasted barley aroma with no hops to speak of. Clear bronze under a white patch and collar. Sweet bread crust and light roasted barley flavour that is a bit off balance toward sweet, but fairly complex. Chocolate and vanilla accents come out later in the taste. Nutty notes as well. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth.
