3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to snifter. Looks good for the style; a slightly translucent dark amberish brown with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty with notes of toffee and toast. Tastes like it smells, but richer, with some dark fruit as well. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Solid beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap @ Big Dawg / Richmond IN --- Clear dark ruby brown, good tan head cover, thin strands of lace. Taste is solid smoky roasted malt that turns a little sweet in the palate before adding light bitters to finish. One is quite enough, but that one is most excellent.

Nice hop bitter with alcohol well hidden....
More like a stout, but very good regardless of pedigree.
