2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2/12 On tap at the brewpub, poured hazy copper body with medium sized head. Toasted aroma sweet caramel malt which dominated also in its sweet flavor. Simple as that, notes of nuts may be present as well. Medium to fuller in body with long sweet sugary and caramel finish. Liked the other one better, this was too sweet and sticky.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy brown pour, with an even foamy head, small bubbles. I couldn’t detect an aroma (but that’s typical for me). Had a large at the microbrew in Madrid. It was malty and a bit bitter, and definitely a toasty taste to the malt. There was a hint of sweetness, but it was hidden behind the bitter until I was about half done. At that point, I was used to the bitterness and could taste more of the sweetness. The bitter still took away from my impression -- it didn’t mesh well. It was ok, but I wasn’t really craving another one.
