look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bought a single bottle from Beers of the World on 8/10/13.

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a mug, served cold.

appearance: root barrel candy orange with a 2 finger creme brulee' head. not much lacing.

aroma: rich toasted caramel malt with some noble hoppiness. very beguiling.

mouthfeel: solid, good.

taste: rich, caramelly sweet and oh so delicious with a touch of cocoa at the end.

notes: Wow and then some! I may have found my new O-fest beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a bright amber color with a small head that fades to nominal lacing. Aroma of mild citrus, malt sweetness, with a bit of fruit sweetness and grain. Taste of malt, light fruit sweetness and bit of grain. Mild bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Fairly light body, a subtle crispness and clean. Decent beer for the style.
