look: 3 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured at a good temperature with a modest, thick, light tan head that soon settled and a tiny bit of lace. Color is a clear cherry brown with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is cocoa, malt, leather, mild tobacco. Flavor's not as good as nose as there are notes of raisins and molasses which I don't find appealing in this kind of beer. Body is hurt by those Flavor's too which clashes and leaves high points. Finish like taste, is longish, and a tad boozy.

Thanks to Retsinis for sharing this one at his' tasting.

Bottled 10/8/13.

Pours a clear brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toast, and metallic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour caramel and toast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but nothing too memorable in my opinion.

Nothing great about this beer, just ok for a brown with a slightly bland but confusing mix of flavors. Pours a dark brown almost mahogany in the light with a ring of brown lace. Smells a bit of toffee with a similar taste of nuttiness, sweet caramel, burnt brown sugar, coffee and a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel medium carbed with a bitter aftertaste.
