A - Dark brown brew with subtle transparency. Short white head. Some lacing.

S - Malty nose, with roasted grains.

T - Follows the nose with a smack of hop, and a toasted element.

M - Easily drinkable, with very little sign of the ABV.

O - A very solid entry, a nicely balanced drinker that packs a wallop.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My second beer from Cutters Brewing Co., acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a thick amber-caramel colored body; reddish-mahogany in the glass with about a finger of khaki head that goes down quick. Some spotty lacing. Looks okay.

S - Hm, the smell is a bit strange, and not entirely enticing. Almost a sour / acidic green apple sort of aroma comes out. Caramel malt and dark vinous fruits are noted. Vinous and vinegary smelling at times.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready caramel malt, some acidic / tart green apple, dark fruits - raisin, fig, dates. Earthy, herbal tea-leaf presence is noted.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy. Lightly thick and syrupy. Medium-full bodied with low carb.

Overall, it's okay, but definitely nothing special. I suppose it grew on me the more I drank it, but it's really a below-average example of the style. Worth a try though, and I look forward to trying more from these guys.

Cutters Brewing Floyd's Folly ---3/5.

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft pint.

A- Brown, golden amber highlight. Light tan head doesn't retain well, and there is no lacing.

S- Caramel notes. Some slight vanilla. Sweet bread. No roast, and there isn't really a detectable hop character, which is good.

T- Sweet. Caramel. A little fruity. Slight roast in flavor.

M- Medium-full body. Very smooth. Sweet roasty finish.

O- Impressive. There was a slight fruity character in the flavor that seemed a little off/ out of style, but still a solid brew.
