2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very murky brown. Looks like watered down poo. Little chunks suspended. The cap was nice and dense off white, but reduces pretty quick. Aroma of dark fruit and spices. And pine? Taste is resinous malt. More pruney than anything right now. A few sips in just leaves a watery palate with diluted toffee. Cripes. It feels like sand in my mouth. So weird. It's not terrible, just doesn't sustain flavor well. And the appearance is bugging me. Like someone's playing a trick on all of us and laughing that they're brewed poo is getting these ratings. Nonetheless, I'm pleased I didn't have to pay for this intoxicating prank.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Caponeís shared with neighbors. Pours thick and turnid ruddy dark brown with minimal head. Nose is fruity, earthy, funky, and has notes of molasses. Tastes fruity, oaky, with cherry and berry fruit notes, some funky oaky yeasty flavors, and a complex flavor profile and complex palate. All who tried this craved more, and I thought it was outstanding, and one that approached the prized beer/spirit double-point.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby brown body with a tall off white cap floating on top. Never smelt this before. WHAT IS THIS? The aroma reminds me of aspen tree sap with heavy spice, and dark fruit. Taste aint as good. Prunes, treeís, elements of burnt coffee. There is a dryness to this, a mouth pasting dryness. Man this is starting to disappoint...its just turning into bellow average boredom. Iím currently watching Krull and this movie is a piece of shit that I just canít turn away from. Cherry, soap, and roasted malts. Beer drinks easy...... I would drink again but I wont purchase again.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Intenso e limpido color castagna con un velo di schiuma beige poco persistente. Aroma intenso e zuccheroso di caramello, albicocca essicata e uva; abboccato rotondo, avvolgente e dolciastro con note di toffee che evolvono verso un finale caffettoso/cioccolatoso ove si fa sentire anche il luppolo. Corpo pieno, robusta e vellutata, meno persistente del previsto ma in ogni caso soddisfacente. Ottima!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle pours a reddish brown color with a small white head that leaves almost no lacing on the glass. Aroma is alcohol and chocolate. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a bit of alcohol burn and a mild hop bitterness. A rather enjoyable barley wine which is not grainy like most. A very unique brew.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Eulogy. Dark Tootsie Roll brown with a slight tan head. Not much aroma but tastes of thick syrupy dark red fruits. Chocolate caramel. Figs. Dates. Dried stawberries. Some charred notes at the bottom. Chewy body. Sweet and dark but finishes clean. Tastes like an Belgium dubbel by way of an Italian table wine. Something key is lacking.
