3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear brown from bottle conditioned bottle with one finger head leaving little lacing. Boozy and caramel up front with a little burn in the throat. Very carbonated that brings complex flavors to the palate. Some sour and bitterness balances the initial sweetness. Some funk with dark fruit . Long bitter finish. This is intense and perhaps too complex for my palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Nashville brewpub. Pours a clear dark brown color with reddish hues and a well-formed off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel dark fruits, and mild hop notes. Flavor is very malty and fruity, and probably the sweetest beer I had at Bosco’s. Sugar plum and raisin, caramel and toffee, with some hop bitterness on the finish. Medium-full bodied with medium-low carbonation. A nice beer overall, but not one of my favorites from Bosco’s.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Memphis. I had this one when I first went to Boscos and was less than impressed. Recipe change or something has really happened. A deep brown ale with a tan head that reminds me so much of the best Fuller’s 1845 I ever had. Big hop aroma, with a bit of smoke, and an obvious load of caramel which translates into a big chewy beer. The alcohol is well integrated, and it is too easy to love and too hard to stop at one.

Pours red amber with a foamy beige head that fades eventually. Aroma is sweet and not much else. Cherry cough syrup taste. The bitter roast finish is not pleasant in this one.
