2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 12oz Bottle. Mostly transparent, ruddy copper colored body with a thin layer of wispy white head. Malty aroma of caramel and cherry gumdrops along with a hint of papaya tropical fruit hops. Toffee and fruitcake. Low citrus hop aroma. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a soft, somewhat sticky texture. Sweet caramel malt flavors up front on the palate with flavors of bread dough, toffee, and raisin bread. A prominent cherry gumdrop flavor lingers. Moderately hoppy flavor, with notes of grapefruit and pine coming out mid-palate and lingering into the finish. The sweetness of the malt dominates though, overwhelming the hops. I’m left with the overall impression of a light American Barleywine.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper color with just a hint of haze. Taller, lasting, smooth whipped cream looking, beige head. Big malt and big hops aromas. Part of me want to say barleywine and the other American strong. The citrus beats out the dark berries, so American strong wins.
Sweet fruity start. Caramel and herbal hops mingle in. A bit sharp on the tongue. Menthol in the finish. I liked this more when I didn’t think about it. Sometime I think things get over analyzed and we forget to just enjoy. Congrats Bell’s on 25 years. Hope to be around for the next 25! 7/10
