look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a very dark reddish brown.

The smell is caramel and earthy hops.

The taste is sweet malts and carmel.

The mouthfeel is very thin for the style with medium carbonation.

Overall not a bad beer, but meh! Wouldn't buy again.

On tap at the brewery.
Dark red-brown, nearly opaque, with a decent head.
Tame for style. Lightly sweet. Drinks like a cross between a Scutch ale and a brown ale. Does finish more like a Scotch Ale, with a trace of smoke.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a copper color and a mostly clear consistency. There was an of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. OK lacing.

S: A decent aroma of malt and caramel - typical of the style.

T: Tasted of a fair amount of malt, a bit of hops, and some caramel thrown in as well. While not as forceful a flavor as you might like, this is a pretty good one.

M: A moderately carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a solid beer that doesn't quite cross over into being great. Still, worth a look.
