2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Old rating found on phone, not sure where this one came from. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium creamy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Grainy aroma with a lot of skunk, some meatiness and nuttiness. The taste is similar with a sweet malty finish and a bit of raisin. Medium bodied. Pretty poor beer.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
500 ml bottle into lager glass. Smells of skunk, caramel, cheese, cheap grain. Smells malty. Pours a clear semi-deep gold hue with a dissappearing head that leaves a collar of foam. Taste is extremely malty sweet with no bitterness and maybe just a touch of sour mid-sip. Too malty for my liking. Highly carbonated. Not my thing at all.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear amber with suspended particulates everywhere and a thin white head, quickly gone. Aroma of sweet malt, cereal grains, alcohol and caramel. Taste of corn, alcohol, sweet malt and a cardboard finish. Seems pretty thin. Try their Black Boss Porter, that one is much better.

Bottle... Poured golden with a huge, frothy, white head. Skunky aroma of malts and sweet honey and herbal sugars. Palate was a little thick and chunky. Lots of sweet malt flavors and some hops too. A little tangy of a finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light golden color with thin white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is malty, tastes almost like honey and corn. This is a syrupy, alcoholic version of bud - a plsnery mead. Not bad actually, just not terribly complex or interesting.. It is hard to believe that Black Boss comes from the same brewery, as it is a far better beer.
