3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma - malty with toast, yams, nuts, and some molasses.
Appearance - the body is a dark bistre brown body, with a 1/2" beige head. The head settles into a layer of foam. Scattered lacing.
Taste - is abundantly malted - there is a range from toast, slightly nutty, honeyed, even a character of molasses. You would find a similar character in candied yams. Very pleasant.
Palate - medium body, slightly creamy on the almost thin, soft carbonation, slightly sweet and decently malty.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Keg Liquor / Clarksville IN --- Aroma of caramel and malt. Opaque brown / black color, ivory head that slowly sinks to a full cover, bands of lace. Taste is malt that pushes quickly past light carbonation to caramel that grows through a medium finish. Slightly chalky at the end. Watery at the onset, chalky at the end....good, not at all great.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a filtered amber-hazelnut brown color with a big khaki head.
Smells of toffee and glazed caramel among a gentle bread quality, which got a refreshing red berry coffee tartness to it.
Drinks pretty soft with a medium carbonation to it and a rustic malty body, which stays refeshing.
Tastes of toasty malts, coated by toffee, while getting accompanied by toffee supportive earth. Finishes with a soft dryness, adding a pleasant depth to the prevailing, smoky turning malts.
Nice brew, relying on the malts with a well composed diversity, making this very drinkable.

Pours clear light brown, big dark tan head. Nose of caramel, toffee, bread, toast, diacethyl, a little DMS. Tastes sweetish with a little bitterness emerging after a moment. Medium body and carbonation, some stickiness. Not bad but unimpressive.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pictured bottle from Keg Liquors; split six ways. Aroma: Semi-sweet chocolate no-bake cookies, but lighter overall; not much in the way of hops. Appearance: Chestnut brown, flat body with a ring of bubbly tan head. Flavor: Very light and nearly watery; has that no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookie thing going on; fruity esters and hop presence are negligible. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Exceedingly dull. Almost like a watered down German Guinness.
