3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle bought from "Roth’s Sunnyslope Market" in South Salem.
Pours a hazy darker amber colour with a nice sized cream coloured head.
Very appetizing malty aromas (if that’s your thing) coffee,semi-sweet chocolate,figs,raisins come to mind..fruity hops.
Taste similar to aroma a bit more sweet though! nice dark chocolate bitter aftertaste.
Nice enough mouth feel medium to ow carbonation but its smooth enough over the tongue. Touch of alcohol warmth in the very end.
I actually liked this one quite a bit..its a sipper though.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours coppery brown with a thin white head and somewhat cloudy body. Has big caramel and toffee notes in the nose with no apparent hops. Tasting notes are big carmelly grapefruit with a hint of chocolate and big sweet finish. Carbonation medium and a full bodied mouthfeel. Overall a nice example of the style with emphasis on the fruity end . Big and somewhat cloying, not a session beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bomber pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and caramel with some spicy notes. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that satisfies the palate. More like an IPA than a winter warmer. Still an enjoyable brew.
