3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at rohrbach's pub. Pours mahogany amber with small off white head. Nose is sweet with additions of raisin and toffee. Taste follows with a plum and faint stone fruit. Well balanced and a strong body. Solid.
On tap at Legends Bar in the Radisson hotel in downtown Rochester, N.Y., while in town to see a Bob Seger concert. Pours clear amber-brown with spritz of light tan head and lacing. Aroma: nuts, molasses. Flavor: the above, along with black pepper, brown bread, caramel; very much malt-forward. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied. Too sweet, even for the style. ehaak26 (709) - - OCT 21, 2016
Aroma is a lot of caramel and roast. The flavor is sweet, with a nice finish. onceblind (10549) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Hazy rustic Amber/copper with a foamy ivory head. Malty toast-filled nose that’s rustic and slightly dark and wheaty and slightly sweet. Semisweet and smooth dark malty flavor that’s a bit bready and wheaty. Lightly sweet and toasty. Meh. johnnnniee (4411) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 18, 2016

Copper brown in color with a stingy white head. Sweet bready caramel maltiness faint fruit and a touch of smoke. Decent beer. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2016
Not gonna go into depth here. Overall unremarkable in just about every way. Drinkable but nothing worth going back for.

Poured into a pint glass from a 16oz tallboy can.
3.5 A: Clear copper color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Lots of toastiness with sweet caramel. Hints of toffee, biscuit malts, and a touch of nuttiness and figgy fruitiness. Smells pretty good.
3.5 T: Like the nose, but a little more subdued. Lots of toastiness with caramel and toffee. Nuttiness, light fruits, biscuit malts.
3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.
3.75 D: Solid brew. Good flavors and no problems.

Brown color . Medium-sized, beige head . Aroma of toasted malt , wood , butterscotch. Sweet , malty taste with bitterness at the end. Smooth, malty beer. Nothing really special, but still interesting. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Can. Very sweet, dark brown pour. Has a bit of the malt backbone but really just overly sweet. Not very well balanced, really, but not terrible. miyauchi38 (1117) - chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2014

The body has a nice dark brown color with deep amber highlights. It raises an average 1.5 to 2 inch beige head. The head holds on well and makes some cool lacing on the glass. In the nose I pick up a good toasted malts character with lots malt sweetness and candy like sweetness as well. Also way off in the background I get a hint of citrus and herbal hops. The flavor is full of toasted malt and grain sweetness with some light fruity candy like sweetness as well. The hops offer a slight herbal back note and just the slightest bitterness near the finish. For such a firm malty beer it is quite drinkable and the sweetness never gets out of control. It has a smooth mellow feel with mild carbonation.
