3.37/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Dark opaque reddish amber color with rising streams of carbonation visible. Lasting foam and surface skim, collar of lace around the edges. 4

Aroma is candy sweet, caramelized sugars and yeasty apple esters. 3.25

Taste is similarly sweet, tempered by a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Apple butter and toast flavors, some crackery malt character, oats don't lend much flavor but lend a creaminess to the body. Feels medium to full bodied, a little too sweet. Overall it's a little odd, but not bad. Not sure i'd seek it out, but it was somewhat better than their other 2 beers. 3.25/3.5/3.5

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

My favorite geriatric 80s cover band... Anyway, this stuff pours a deep garnet topped by a finger or so of dirty white foam. The nose comprises dried maple syrup, candied orange peel, and a vein of chocolate powder somewhere in the mix. The taste brings in more of the same up front, followed by an overwhelmingly bad melange of treacly bitterness, sugar-free maple syrup sweetness, and something akin to an old Whopper (the candy, not the burger) or Sixlet. Man, this stuff got objectionable really quickly! The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, this beer did not work at all. I imagined an amber with the creaminess of an oatmeal stout, but instead I got a mess of a beer with a bit of that creaminess. Bah.

From a bottle at Green Owl. Not nearly as mediocre as the average BA score would have it. It's not a good looking pour. And the aromas aren't anything to write home about. But flavor in the mouth is quite good.

This pours a medium brown color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is a little malty with hints of oats. The texture is very thin and the taste isn’t too strong. Fairly drinkable but it is light and doesn’t have a whole lot of flavor. Overall it’s fairly sweet but lacks depth in the taste.

Smells a lot sweeter than it tastes, with rotting fruit, vanilla, malt and a hint of roast. Flavor is rather simple - malt and bitter. Body is ok. A yawner.
