From old tasting notes. Hazy deep orange color with a creamy tan head. Delicious toasted malt aroma. Wonderful toasted malt flavor has a fair amount of hops upfront as well as in the finish. A sweet underlying maltiness throughout. Very tasty.

clear amber, whispy white head, candy sweet carmel malt aroma, heavy malt flavor, almost cloying, slight floral hop character, hint of bitterness,

The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Decent Bocky, breadey, slightly sweet malt nose with the slightest touches of alcohol and sulfer but very little head. Slightly hazed amber body is quite lovely but the lack of head retention still kinda bugs me. Mouth feel is a bit on the thin side at first but becomes more substantial a bit after warming. White bread, sweet malt, slight berry, earthy and herbal hops. Finishes spectacular with tons of nuts and grassy herbs. Long lingering bread dough and a little alcohol for warming.
