3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Triple Rock. It pours a very deep reddish amber color with a khaki head. The aroma has red fruit with a little hard fruit candy and hints of floral hops. The flavor has some medium floral/menthol hops with a caramel and fruit background. Nice herbal bitter and fruity finish. Robust mouthfeel, but not too sweet. The hop flavor is strong, but the bitterness is low which is nice in a beer like this compared to say, Celebration. High drinkability.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Triple Rock. Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Mint, toast, and dusty cocoa on the aroma. Some coffee, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor is kind of on the bitter side. Lots of cocoa powder, some mint, and metal. Decent toasted malt and caramel sweetness. Not really a big fan.
