Snifter on tap at Bakersfield for $8. Clear darker red color, good foamy off white head, good lace. Spicy hops, good malt profile, some chocolate, little jammy darker fruit. Smooth lighter carbonation, bigger body, more dry. Good bitter taste, little sweet. Good but not worth the cost

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big malty red. Pours dark red with light head. Unbalanced to me, it’s woody and sweet, and heavy, hops are there, but not enough to balance out. Tastes like it’s old and hops faded, but it was a fresh draft, so just unbalanced for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at D’s Monroeville this beer poured a red-amber color with a large fluffy tan head that left good lacing. The aroma had a strong boozy bite wtih candied dark fruits and caramel following. The flavor was bitter and rough with a strong boozy presence and intense candied fruits, caramel, fig and more booze following that up. Long boozy caramel and candied fruit finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a copper color with an orange head. The aroma has big notes of tropical fruity hops, mainly pineapple, peach and some minor hints of pine. The flavor is pretty much the same with some caramel. BIg body, sweet and hoppy. I like!
