2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
on tap at 3rd North Bar in Philly which is near Abbaye another great philly beer bar. have to say, I know there are a lot of high ratings for this beer below but I personally hated this one. makes me wondered if the tap was gone wrong or something. it tasted overwhelming of malts and hops. just and overload of bitterness. very yeasty, in the nose and taste, ru, raisins - all just really strong flavors that didn’t go well together like when you blend colors and get one of those ugly green-brown blends. well thats a metaphor for the unification of the rum, yeasty, raising, bitter hops, fruity, caramel, sweet ingredients. yuk.

Tap at mcgraths. Sweet, bit of a sugary flavor, wasn’t as flavorful as I though but it wasn’t bad.

good beer at a good bar. hard kick to the sobriety. I’d like to try some of their other brews to compare but this one is a keeper.

Draft @ Racers in Baltimore. Slightly hazy with a deep amber hue. Clinging creamy head. Medium bodied with a slight yeasty aroma. Initial flavor is a smokey peaty malt flavor. The caramel and cocoa hit the palate next. Then a touch of fruity esters. Finishes with a warming toasty dry hop flavor. Wonderfully blended but with a great layered complexity. Touch of citrus yeast zest somewhere in the middle. Plays over the palate. Well integrated and delicious.

As dubbels go, this product is rather unique in my experience. Taste starts sweet, and becomes intensely bitter, like an overextracted tea.... but I mean that in the best way possible.

Another delicious beer sampled at my first visit to Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore. The beer poured a dark amber-orange color with a big tan head. The aroma was of sweet malts, featuring caramel and fruit notes. It started off sweet, but had a nice bitter finish, where the taste of alcohol was slightly present. A very wet beer with light carbonation and a good alcohol contribution.

Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel, florals.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. A little sweet and bitter.

Lightly hazy, medium brown with a filmy head. Crisp coldwater and appleish aroma. Nice, bittereed, tart, ABV evident. Grows sweeter as it warms. Went really well with the exotic cheese plate here. Well done.

Great Baltimore Brew. The description does it nicely. Get this sometimes at The Brewer’s Art itself or on tap at a local place, Alonso’s.
