3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy brown, with a small, tan head. Immediate aroma of caramel and cardamon, with some ripe bananas, pecans, and light toasted coconut. Sweet flavor, with some light hoppy bitterness. Light to medium body, silky, and a little chalky. Overall, this is a surprisingly flavorful and tasty beer. Nice...

Clear sienna appearance with a medium size, off white head and light lacing. Aroma of caramel malts and molassas. Earthy, sweet malt taste, modestly hopped, with hints of soft fruit. Easy drinking, medium bodied, with average carbonation and a short lived finish.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2012 Dark red,short head,more than average carbonation.Clear.Nice looking.
Aroma is malty ,dark ,some mineral. Toasted Oatmeal cookie. Almost burnt toast,probably the dark carmel malt. Heavy toasty grainy. Strong toasted nutty cookie .Dusty.
Taste is pretty good,distinct grain maltiness(maybe german or english)with dark burnt carmel sweetness,some hoppiness but mildish. Nutty toasty.Fairly slick but smooth creamy with a fullish body. Not too hoppy it has bigger malt presence. Pretty good balance in taste with a nice conditioned or mildy complex taste. Smooth mellow mild peppery bittering finish that melts away.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Made quite the pop when I opened it. Pours reddish amber with a very big off white head. Aroma is earthy, caramel, roasty malt with a spicy hops edge to it. Flavor begins sweet and slightly spicy, finishes almost like a dry stout. Some metallic notes. Good balance. Body is fizzy and a bit on the thin side.
