3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle poured into shaker pint. Billowing tan head settles to a thin layer atop hazy iced tea colored liquid. Minimal lacing. Aroma is subtle, fig, bread, citrus, and dark fruit. Taste is stronger with citrus, malt, caramel, and honey sweetness followed by a slight floral bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, high fizzy but soft carbonation, and a sweet finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown body, clean. Brown malts, bready, spice, dark sweetness. American yeast but not dull at all. Not extreme but we’ll made. Perhaps a bit too much co2 in the nose. Looks and drinks great though. Well developed! (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark chestnut, almost a cola brown, with a thick and frothy buff head that pillows after a couple minutes. Aroma has roast malt, caramel, woody, and subtle honey tones. Flavor starts with toasty malt and then cues caramel, nutty, earthy, and shy honey notes to add to the sonata. Firm texture is smooth, yet fairly tingly, so it goes down well, leaving a caramel and earthy finish. Support your local!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 750mL. Home. A dark brown beer with a big creamy beige head. Great retention head and lacing. Intense fruity aroma (grape, blackberry, blackcurrant), herbs, caramel, spices, roast, smoke, coffee. Medium sweet, light to medium herbal bitter. Medium body, silky texture, good carbonation, sweet caramel finish, notes of coffee. Overall, beautiful, delicious aroma (dark fruits and coffee...), good taste and palate balance. A bit more boldness and depth and that beer could be a Top !

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. Deep amber color and ruby red highlights. Aroma tends to lean toward the grape and wine-like fruitiness more than the Belgian malts and Belgian sugar, given its style. The taste has an appealing toasted pale malt note but it also has an abundance of dark fruits akin to grape.

Bottle from strait and narrow, Lincoln. Dark brown ale with bubbly off white head. Aroma is molasses and toffee with sweet dry fruit. Taste is sweet with not much indication of the strength. Quite prickly carbonation and a medium body. I prefer the no. 1.
