3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting aroma, caramel, heavy malt, sweet almost except for the hops showing through. Appearance is a nice red. Taste is again interesting. Initially very malty almost sweet then finishing with a more hoppy bitterness. Overall a little different and not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours a clear red with a rocky white head. Fruity aroma with phenolic notes behind caramel sweetness. A bit sweet, with some herbal characteristics. Bitter ending that intensifies as the beer warms.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught@brewpub (Portland, OR)
Clear deep copper color, steady creamy beige head. Light fruity-berryish aroma. Suprisingly light body for this ABV and OG. Fullers-like nutty, snappy flavors. Caramel and some alcohol. Quite English, like UK style strong ale.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a tall head that lingers nicely. Mild aromatics. Full nectar with excellent carbonation. Good flavor of malt, not too heavy and mildly bittered. I get a little bit of pine about mid way. Finish is dry and smooth. A very easy beer to get down for it’s strength.

Aroma of toffee, fruit, pine. Taste is decent, but kind of strange, mostly hoppy but also quite sweet.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden deep amber to orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is mild yeasty, phenolic, spiced and herbal hoppy. Caramelish sweet, mixed with phenols and solid bitter to herbal hoppy notes. Ends bitter and dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12-oz bottle. It poured a clear orange body with a respectable light beige head that provided loads of lace. The aroma had sweet dried fruits covered heavily by musty floral scents. The flavor was fruity with a dollop of caramel and an earthy bitterness that strengthened in the dry finish. Definitely a brew that I’d drink more of.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wonderful, sweetish aroma. Sweet, malty, caramel? Hoppy - with a hoppy finish. I like this one quite a bit. I think it’s underrated currently.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a clear amber with a rough, off-white head. Caramel and perfumy hops in the nose. Quite full-bodied, plenty of caramel and a fine and slightly herbal hoppiness while the finish is intensely bitter. Quite delicious. 220611
