3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Celebrator-type, deep brown colour. Kind of syrupy and harsh. It could use some time in the cellar, but still not too bad. Alcoholic/hoppy aroma. Sweet and malty to start with molasses and then some bitter hops before a very warming finish. It definitely needs to mellow and blend a bit. It’s too harsh when young.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear medium brown with hints of red. The head isn’t much to speak of but otherwise this is an interesting looking beer. Lightly sweet aroma with a bit of yeast. Taste is sweet with hints of spices. I can’t really taste the ginger, orange or cinnamon specifically. Overall the flavor is of a mildly sweet strong ale. Not bad, but not my favorite winter brew by far.

The aroma is dry with herbal notes. it is a clear amber color in the glass. The flavor is sour and kind of caustic on the palate.

Big wollap on the back of tongue. Dissapates quickly, dry finish. Beautiful color, laced the side of glass. I’m getting licorice, though, which detracts.
