2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Buckeye, they got one thing right, strong this beer doesnt hide its alcohol at all.. its rough and tumble with high booze, little hop backbone and lots of candied sugar. Buckeye is headed in the wrong direction I fear.

651mL thanks to MrLo. Pours a murky deep red amber. Weak yellowish head. Nose is strawberry tea, toffee, broccoli, mint, soapy chemical. Taste is sticky strawberry syrup, astringent tea, paper. Palate is dry, dusty, papery, some vegetal stickiness. Okay.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: pours deep clear amber, brief off white head that dissipates. Nose is dark fruits, cinnamon, brown sugar and Belgian yeast. Somewhat syrupy, sweet then a fair amount of spicy booze on the tongue. Much better as it warms but has a sweetness that gets to me on the finish. Warming by the fire, it's doable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours crystal clear dark amber with a nice white head that quickly dissipates. Smells a little bit of the yeast...and the nice mustiness of belgians brews. Tastes alcohol, vanilla...a tiny bit woody. Pretty Good.

Bottle thanks to Bvery! Clear amber pour, medium carbonation and and aroma of candi sugar and a little alcohol. Flavor is caramel malt, slightly warming candi sugar, alcohol and a little raisin. Very enjoyable and dangerously drinkable for being 11%!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by BVery thanks. Pours hazy caramel color with little off white head that leaves a wispy film. Aroma is malty caramel and spice/yeast scent. Taste is sweet and spicy and warming with nice surprising notes of caramel and malt with yeast. Palate is full and chalky drying. Pretty surprised and liked.

Bottle. Slightly murky orange amber pour with minimal head. Very carmely, some mild dark fruit, and the booze is noticeable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Foggy brown with a sparse white head. Nose is clove, candi and rum with hints of banana and spruce. Sticky and spicy with a warming buzz reminding me of a wassail. Taste is clove, cardamon, orange peel and dates. Dry finish, yeasty and boozy. Massive spicing works pretty well.
