Had at 3 Floyd's in a dimple mug.
L: Dark brown, mildly opaque, light tan head.
S: Toasted malt.
T: Nice roastiness and caramel - with a tad bit of sweet chocolate.
F: Medium body, nothing to write home about but I think the point of this beer is to focus on the taste.
O: Enjoyable dark lager.

16oz draft pour into a Bavarian Lodge branded becher glass is a mostly opaque deep, dark brown color with a light, and quickly disappearing, tan head.
Aromas are roasted malt and lighter coffee.
Flavors lean more malty with much less coffee and an almost chewy caramel.
Feel is lighter than one might assume, per the style.
Nice by the fire.

Dark brown in color.

Roasted malts with some coffee notes. Smokey with bacon flavors. Some chocolate and caramel.

Medium bodied. Dry and roasted feel.

Decent, but it's tough to drink a lot of this one.

Appearance: Dark muddy brown in my generic pint glass at a local Beef O’Brady’s, with a light head of tan. Thin, wispy lace.

Aroma: Caramel malty. A little toasty with some almost roasty malts.

Taste: Caramel, chewy, with notes of roasted chocolate malts. Not much hoppiness evident here, but this is a rich and full-bodied ale that’s not bad at all and easy to drink. Solid, if unremarkable.

Was excited to have a beer brewed by the first female FFF brewer and also carries Martellus Bennet’s nickname! On draft at FFF brewpub and served in a dimpled mug. Appearance is clear, dark brown with reddish highlights that show through when held up to Finding Nemo which is playing behind my sister. A two-finger tan head collapses pretty quickly to a cap and leaves a minimal amount of lacing. Aroma is roasty malt, brown bread, sugar that hints at caramel. Taste is malt sweetness with toasty and nutty notes. Some wisps of cocoa and bread crust. A light roasty and leafy bitterness comes on the swallow. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, ashy, bitter but abrupt finish.
