Had this in the bottle at a function. Match look score to smell. Beer was creamy, smooth and had an excellent balance of classic brown flavor. Enjoyed this beer very much!

This one tastes best closer to room temperature. Sweet with cocoa and a nice hop finish.

Deep brown with deep red hues. The head was minimal and disappeared quickly. The nose is grainy, toasty with a bit a caramel sweetness distant metal tinge. Again the taste is grainy with roasted oats and a bitter burnt type caramel finish. Feels good. Smooth with pleasant carbonation. Over all not bad. I really enjoyed this one. Might even pick it up again in the future.

When this beer is on tap, it's really good. But when I get it in bottles, it often tastes like it's been badly mistreated. Not sure whats going on.
