3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep ruby, almost purple hues with a healthy two finger tan cap and consistent lacing. Smells of fresh pitted fruits, some caramel and toffee to support. The flavor is dominated by plums, caramel and a heap of obvious dates. The hops pull through all of this in a surprising way. The feel is a bit thinner than I would normally associate with these bold flavors profiles. Overall, it’s a unique beer that deserves its position in 21st Amendment’s seasonal lineup.

12oz can. Pours clear brown with a ruby hue and two-finger off-white head. Aroma of dank floral hops. Taste is not nearly as complex as expected. Maybe a slight trace of date flavors with resinous hops and sweet malt. Thin on the palate. Reminds me of old extract homebrew. Not a winner.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. A reddish brown body topped by a short lived light beige head. A few blobs of lace were left. On the nose is sweet malt, dates, roast that all come together. Flavor is a fair amount of nuttiness, bready, and nice subdued pine. Needed a touch more sweetness to round out the flavor. Fairly dry finish with roasted nuts. Medium body with mild carbonation. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
We did not know what to expect since the packaging gave no clues. Not a bad brew with lots of biscuit and caramel on the nose and as advertised alcohol warmth on the flipside. Lots of piney hops out front followed by a slight toffee sweetness and hints of dark fruit. Very good body and nice color.

Delicious balance of malts and hops in a beautiful dark amber pour. Dates give it a unique delicious twist. Great beer!

Pour from a can has a dark amberish color with a medium beige head. Roasty nose with a little alcohol, spice and and a hint of dark fruit. Taste is malty and then woody,nutty with some hop bitterness and some zest. Palate is fairly smooth with a nice carbonation and easy to drink, pretty good brew.
