4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a clear ruby brown color with a lasting thick head. Aroma is somewhat soft but contains caramel, clove and some banana. Flavor is more of what I expected with rich caramelized malts, fig, raisin, cane sugar, along with a hint of apricot, clove and cinamon. Mouthfeel is slightly sweet but dry enough to be considered belgian.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Pours murky copper, big beige head. Aroma is sugar, caramel, plums, candied figs, raisins, really nice, and a good sweet sugar feel. Flavor is similar, sweet, plums, figs, raisins, and actually a nice citrus hop presence that prevents it from getting too sweet. I really like it. Would love a barrel-aged version.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with thick head. Not a lot of aroma. Spicy beginning. Creamy mouthfeel. This is not my favorite style and I was surprised at how drinkable this was at 10%. There is a nice meld between the hop bitterness and the booziness that belies its high abv.

FLAVOR - builds on me as it warms and my palate warms up to it. It’s subtle, hare to tell it’s 10%.
