3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark cherry color, compact vanilla white head.
Aromas of rich milk chocolate, honey, cream, and carmel. Doughy malt character, floral freshness. Some molasses, nuts, and raisin.
Flavor is mild toasted malt, some fruit and nuts, and has enough hops to put it not to far on the sweet side. Molasses, coffee, raisin.
Palate is very smooth textured, and has little carb, which I appreciate.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark copper color with a small tan head. The aroma is malt and caramel. The taste is an excellent match to the aroma with a small amount of hops. An excellent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
There was a time I drank this beer with my old pal Chris Blado, god rest his wisconsin soul. We were playing music in the old Atlatl studio, thats a place of worship for you yahoo numbskulls who don’t know an ant eater from an aardvark. I remember enjoying myself and then really enjoying myself. Feeling very drunk. This sweet beer, malty, smooth, pantry full of caramel, sneaks up on you. With a APV of almost 8% a couple of these will put petite men, like Chris and I, under the table fast.

Sweet fruity aroma, dark fruits. Rich maltiness too. Tastes extremely malty, but the palate is quite light. Goes down remarkably easily. Malts almost kvassy. A malt overload - nicey-nice!

Nothing spectacular but a good decent beer. ABV is 7.6% which is good. Although I prefer an 8.0% or higher. Nevertheless, has a good taste to it.

Sits great on the tongue. Nice dark color with a roasted flavor. It’s fairly high in alcohol so that never hurts, right?
