2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2015 Draft into sample glass, clear dark’ish amber color with tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, light cocoa and light fruity yeast note. Taste is the aroma adding a slight light coffee note. Light body, moderate carbonation with slight roasty finish. Better then average red ale.
Growler share at my parents house.
Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a ruddy burnt dark orange almost amber color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that hung for a little bit and died off at a moderate pace. Light stringy lace.
The aroma had a nice blend of floral hops, herbal qualities, some toast, dark bread, nuts - somewhat roasty with a touch of leather and earthiness at the end.
The flavor was malty dryness, some sweetness in there, but not too much. Some cereal/grain roastiness came out and the herbal qualities seemed a bit stronger here. Aftertaste had the cereal, dark bread, and nuts. Finish was the same.
The palate was just a touch under medium bodied with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt light. ABV felt good and appropriate.
Overall, pretty nice enough beer to have again, and mostly on par for the style. cheap (6205) - CHINA - DEC 29, 2014
On tap at the bocktown. Nice place fer sure. Looks like darker iced tea. Slight off putrid aroma but in a good way. It smells like oriental food with tamarind in there, you know? Leathery dark tasting beer off from a stout nor a porter. Decent co2. Some background roastiness in the leather of this taste. Did I say leather? Yes it is. Peat unique and somewhat odd in its uniqueness but I’m sure I had a beer that had this flavor in it in the past. Some mild medicinal flavors in this. Can’t really appreciate this somewhat irish (hehehheh) ale. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2014

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear dark amber to brown with a small, frothy beige head, medium retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast and caramel malt, dates and light earthy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, dates, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear amber body with a wispy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is slightly sweet with a toasty and lightly caramel maltiness. Just a touch of hops. The flavor is very thin and watery with not much going on. Some weak toasted malt and minimal to no hops. Mouthfeel is thin and very watery with soft fizzy carbonation. Very very little to go on with this one, hard to believe that this is all grain.

Draft at the source. Clear amber brown color, bright tan head. Aroma of cocoa, subtle port wine. Taste is smooth and light cocoa, caramel and a bit of coffee. Not bad.
