2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Clear brown colour with low white foam. Aroma from chocolate, sweet milk and caramel. Body is light, with light chocolate, sweet milk, suggestions of green pepper along with tad sewer. Pretty un-sweet for the style yet reminiscent of a milk stout with its blend of sweet and toast. Unexciting beer but pretty solid.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown amber with a thin froth cover. Easy malt ball aroma with some light roastiness translates to a similar flavor profile with some additional toastiness. Barely medium-bodied. May have appeal to crossover macro brew drinkers with its easy-bodied and toastiness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gorgeous dark copper pour, with a small eggshell head. A great dark, slightly fruit malt nose. Upfront breads and cereals, with a slight nutiness. The mouth feel is perfect, and the carb is soft and pleasant. The finish is lightly bitter, but still quite malty with notes of caramel, more breads and sweet nutty malts. Its a dialed back doppelbock, and i love it. Super drinkable, great beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from big lots. Poured an auburn/brown color. Not much head. Aroma was quite nice; caramel, cocoa, nuts, bread, earth and sweet malt. Flavor was solid, but not quite as layered. Soft and smooth on the palate. Sweet, caramel and nuts with a short finish. Ok overall.
