FROTHINGSLOSH (7300) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Sampled on draft at Tapped this beer poured a dark red-brown color with orange highlights and a large creamy tan head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was toasty malts, caramel, fruity hops and a light herbal and baking spice note. The flavor was bitter , smoky and woody with light fruity hops and a bit of bread. Medium length finish with lingering smoke. Medium body. Meh.

Skyview (5834) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a clear brown amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off white head that leaves behind a thin off-white ring. Aroma of roasted dark malt, a hint of chocolate, floral hops and a touch of toffee. Taste is where some of the smoked malt character comes through with toasted chocolate malt and floral hops. Finish has a short mild bitterness followed by some smoked chocolate malt aftertaste.

rondphoto (4286) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 5, 2016
Aroma of malt and chocolate. Clear dark mahogany brown color, smooth 1" beige head, lots of lace streaks. Taste is malt with oak and chocolate that passes through a fizzy palate to a chalky, somewhat bitter finish. This is one of those brews in which the separate parts dont make for a satisfying whole.
