Of course this shit fucking gushed when I opened it. A chocolate, raisin aroma, kind of like a dubbel. Aroma is insanely sweet and then dirty. Kind of a nutty, brown sugar taste. Pretty weird. Im trying really hard to choke this down.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mildly hazy caramel brown with a creamy and rather large beige slowly dissipating crown – it took a few minutes to pour the whole bottle. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, cereal grains and mild alcohol. Taste of caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, raisons and alcohol. Mostly malted but enough of a hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. Creamy and a shade over carbonated but not too bad.

The pour reveals a clear amber color with a ring of white lace. Aroma and flavor of hops, fruits and alcohol. The palate is light and liquorous and the carbonation is moderate. It’s not bad but somehow it failed to captivate me.

Bottle shares by Adam. Thanks man.
Hazy yellow body with soft white head. Aromas include lemons, hops, crackers. Bitter hops with lemony, tart citrus and a tangy finish. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy brown/amber/orange with opalescense. Light bready fruit with cherries, bourbon and lime in the aroma. Flavor is a warm alchol, yet still some thickness and not too much depth. Fruit, with a touch of chocolate, maybe some pears. Almost aged like. But overall, restrained alcohol and malt. Not much complex characterisitics. Straightforward and drinkable. Finish is sweet, with a light hoppy dryness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Deep translucent red-brown body, medium tight cream head. Nose of grape, brown sugar, and toast, sweet and somewhat bitter. Leathery, boozy body with grape, caramel, brown sugar, toast, and hints of butterscotch. Strong but boring.

12oz bottle. Rating #47. Extremely murky and dense dark brown with a light beige head. Light fruity aroma and a little sweetness. Toasty flavor, caramelly and a bit of a light roasts bitter finish. Pretty decent. (1936)

Bottle. First observation is that this is one of those incredible pain in the ass beers that just won’t fit in a glass. First pour results in a half an inch of liquid at the very bottom of the glass, the rest is fluffy beige foam. Five minutes later and I have forced most of the beer into the glass, but I’m a little sick of the whole experience at this point. The final product is a glass with half foam, half liquid... a nice brownish red hue and nice highlighting. Aromas are unimpressive... a kind of apple and pear juice mixed together with a touch of caramel and soap. Flavor is much better than the rough start we got off to. It has a pretty nice peat flavor to it, which compliments the fruity sweetness well and helps bridge it to the alcoholic warmth. It still has a bit of a soapy feel to it, though, and in the aftertaste I pick it up from time to time. This is a pretty hot (alcohol) beer with a smooth and slightly viscous feel on the palate.
