Tap. At the 14th Avery Anniversary party. A mild gold in color with a very light hop aroma and a faint malty aroma overpowering the hops. A dry finish.

Bitter, bitter, bitter beer. Disgusting. Beautiful color/tolerable aroma, tastes like sweaty feet. My girlfriend liked it though.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin bubbly head. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel and light cherries. Flavor is sweet with caramel malts, candy, with a warming finish. thin to Medium body. I would like to see how this ages...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
IT’s hard for me to rate this as it’s not my favorite type of beer. The beer is overly sweet without much hop balance, but that is really the style so I’ll give it a 15/20.

bought a bottle of this for a friends housewarming. It got better in my summation after it lost some of its carbonation. sweet cherry caremel aroma, does a good job of hideing alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper colored with light carbonation that does not lace well. The aroma is nice and mouth feel is good. Not a super complex beer but very stylistic. The alcohol is hidden well...the sweetness from the candy sugar is overbearing...thus the ABV. Some bitter orange peel or corriander in the aftertaste would be nice.

3.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer is a red amber with a thin white head. The nose is big, I can smell it 2 ft. away. The nose is a mix of sweet malts, hops, spice, caramel and toasted nuts. The mouth feel is slightly thick with a nice round feel. The taste somewhat follows the nose but it finish with a somewhat unpleasant funk, almost fishy.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Much better than the one on tap (also 1 year old) at the Falling Rock at GABF time (02). Seems to have aged well. Smooth rounded sweetness but surprisingly drinkable for a 10% abv beer. Luckily I have another one.
