3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2005 bottle. The day after Thanksgiving, what better beer to share amongst ourselves. Pours a nice clear orangish brown with a fluffy head. Aroma smells of toasted malts, sweet caramel apples, a bit of citrus, hints of floral hops. I left it outside overnight so the first sip was ice cold. Nice sweetness likend to brown sugar and full mouth feel. As I kept drinking and it warmed up, the malts and earthy spices really came through. It was nice and strong with a nice dry hoppy back of the mouth taste.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a brilliant copper from a bottle, minimal lacing. Aroma is of a sweet tobacco, not processed but dried tobacco leaves, with some boozy esters. Flavor is reminiscent but not exactly creme brulee, with its bitter burnt sugar, and sweet cream/custard. A very pleasant heat in the throat. Great beer.
