Sammy (11641) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2008
A surprisingly good one, enjoyed at the Washington DC outlet. A bit of carbonation, and chocolate malt. Light browncolour with a white head. Creamy, drying finish. Abit of sourness. It all worked and was very drinkable, despite having a few other beers that day, though none that burned the palate. Perhaps Jason tinkered it well, his last day cheers!

Poured at the Jupiter brewfest. Looks like a coke. Aroma of coffee, caramel, roasted malts and dark toast. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side wtih some bitterness as well. I thought this was just ok.
