3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pine bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The beer poured mid brown and clear. Kind of tea colored but darker. A nice beige fluffy head was big and finally completely disappeared. An aroma that had some roasted notes with hops. The flavor surprised me a bit and I didn’t quite know how to categorize it. I tasted plenty of sweet malts. Grass and spices, too. Hops were interesting as was the yeast. There was some fruit in there and some nuts that grew with warmer temps. The aftertaste was spice and several minutes after the last sip is gone I still taste it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma is loaded with heavy roasted grains along with some faint brown sugar and nuts. It pours a bright transparent copper with a one finger beige head that leaves behind a solid sheet of lacing...an impressive looking beer. The flavor starts with some nice light chocolate and caramel. Moderate roasted grains in the middle, but nowhere near as strong as the aroma would you to believe they would be. The finish has some light chocolate and roasted nuts. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
