3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
2009 MiBGWF: Hazy amber copper hue with a minimal head and little lacing. The aroma smells of cough syrup, booze, carmel, spice, some acidic fruits. The taste has a big malty forefront with a boozy finish. Some minerals and bittering hops found about. The mouth feel is syrupy and heavy with a very warming tendency. I wish this had a little more overall character and depth, too one note and a bit cloying,

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at MBG Winterfest 2009.
Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration.
Very good brew.
