3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy red/brown and creamy. Caramel/toffee hints of fruit (deep and darkish) Quite toasty and savoury though. Very big booziness with kicks of liquorice very rich treacly flavours. Amazing burnt sugar finish. Still. A great snifter.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
English snow taffey and apricot in the nose. Bright auburn with no head. Flavor had resinous hops, tart unripe peaches and boose. A bit heavy and not impressive.

Alcohol, bleach and vinegar combine to form the potent aroma in this one. In addition it also smells like chocolate chips straight out tha bag. A burnt orange hue with little if any head. Tastes like a combination of chocolate chips, licorice, alcohol and raisons.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Rattle n Hum. Reddish amber with lasting head and lace. Sherry brown sugar alcohol aroma. Very fruity brown sugar port alcohol flavors. Sticky alcohol mouthfeel. Very strong tasting in the alcohol dept and somewhat astingent bitterness. Not as bad as, say, Brooklyn Monster, but still a challenge to drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at brewpub. Pours out a dark red-brown color, more red than your typical bw with a thick off-white head. Sweet aroma of fruit and floral hops and caramel malt. Flavor very sweet and full of brown sugar, caramel, toffee and citrus, floral and pine notes. Not the typical beer for the style, but I very much enjoyed it all the same. Very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Blind Tiger. Dark cloudy amber to brown with small head. Aroma is boozy molasses, pecan pie, caramelized brown sugar, booze. Taste is sweet molasses, pecan/other nuttiness, lots of sugars. Oily palate, molasses booze lingers on tongue, light burn down throat. Good but a little too sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a very complex beer. Very sweet and pale malt forward. No notice of roasted malts. Some biscuity and white fruit notes. Citric acid and big hop resin with soft bitterness, Hops seem to be concentrated in the fermenter or hopback. Sweetness is forward at the finish with only mild bittering.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with big, thick head that doesn’t stick around too long. It is very nicely balanced, with flavors of sweet caramel, resinous citrus hops, fruity esters, and a balancing bitterness. Very little alcohol presence. Nice and smooth for such a big beer.

Draft at Brass Rail. Honey color. Not as much aroma as I was hoping for. Light fruit, caramel. Light sweetness. Creamy texture. Some warming alcohol. Nice balance of malts and hops. Would get again.
