3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vintage 2005. A hazy amber beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy - Cascade giving it notes of grapefruit, but also with strong notes of alcohol and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with lots of caramel notes, but also a strong alcohol note, which lends the beer a metallic tinge. Toward the end the alcohol leaves a slight burn on the tongue and in the top of the throat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a more or less clear body, brown in color and a small, off-white to light beige head. Alcohol, citrus, pine cones, dried fruits, caramel and alcohol on the nose. Complex and pleasant. The flavor has much the same found in the aroma. Full-bodied, warming and sweet on the palate. Low on carbonation, but that’s pleasant. Complex flavor too, with caramel, citrusy, piney hops, bitterness and a meaty touch. Lasting finish. A tasteful, delightful beer that lasts and pleases. Nice. 110301

Bottle from Supermarket Liquors in Fort Collins, CO. Pours dark amber with a foamy 1 finger beige/tan head. Sort of a date aroma. Near full bodied with carbonation I am at a loss to describe. Flavor is dark brown fruit and dark brown malt. Finishes a bit more sweet than not. Goes down all too well.
