3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1687 -April 2015 - On tap at Burnside with the CBI crew. Lots of similar flavours on the palate to the barrel variant, lots of roast malt bitterness and very present rum sweetness, hoppy edge. Hops much more present on the nose and on the palate. Edgy, a little sharp, a little rowdy for a winter ale.

Bottle shared with Parksy and Malfair. Orange Amber with an off white head. Bready caramel, marmalade, moderate bitterness. I liked this more than expected.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the Pumphouse, Richmond, BC; sleeve (14oz?)
Hazy Amber color, creamy head. Full bodied beer, moderately sweet, with good malt and caramel flavor, strong bitterness;/some hop resins.
But also a strong buttery aroma and flavor. Toffee and fudge.
Something is wrong with this one, although it a not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small yellow head, irregular, over hazy darker red-amber beer. Fruity & vegetable nose; "forgotten" vegetables, and the fruit is starting to rot.... Banana(peel), caramel, fusels. Bitter-sweet. Finish is nearly wry, but main taste sweet-fruit, as fruitmash with quinine. Retronasal amandine/rosewater; Very slick to viscous, hopoils, tartness backthroat. Some alcohol present. The nose just isn’t right. Drinking is easier.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma bursts with many different elements, including dark fruits, resinous hops, caramel malts and candied sugar. Flavour is very sugary sweet, with lots of resinous hops, caramel malts and lots of residual candied sugar. Despite the intense sweetness, I quite like it. Rather cloying, but it’s complex enough to be enjoyable in small amounts. Very good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at brewery. Pint glass. Mahogany with small white head. Subtle aroma. Malty, a bit sweet grain, then alcohol hop. Not very crisp. More like an old ale than an american strong.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Cloudy, dark amber colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Fruity hoppy and mildly spicy aroma, notes of orange are fully integrated in a caramel malty body, an additional lemon dash, hints of cinnamon, chewing gum. Taste is caramel malty with notes of cinnamon, a nuttily touch, mixed with orange fruitiness and hints of lemon juice, notes of Wrigley’s Big Red and Juicy Fruit. Lasting, minimally biting, peppery spicy and bitter hoppy finish, slightly chewy mouthfeel, minimally viscous palate.
