I did not make a starter for this beer, but probably should have. My efficiency was high and actually ended up with an OG of 1.046.

My quick and dirty (and brutally honest) review:

Appearance: Carbonation is fairly accurate for the style, with the beer pouring a deep brown color. This beer is fairly opaque with hints of lighness on the edges of the tapered glass that I'm drinking it from.

Aroma: This beer is all about malt. There is a malty sweetness and a rich caramel aroma present in the nose. No hop aroma is detectable.

Palate: The caramel sweetness and overall maltiness continue in the front of the palate. Only a faint hint of hops can be tasted. Finishes somewhat dry, which compliments the maltiness very well for a nice clean finish and overall impression.
