4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
"June ’13. Big, interesting brew. Reddish brown, big aroma and flavor of dark fruit, brown sugar, light somoke and alcohol. There is a faint tartness to the flavor that is different than the lemony astringency sometimes present in scotch ales. Bready notes on the finish as well. Lots going on in this one. Hard to get out here in the west, but i hope to try again."

Too sweet for me. Nose and aroma are all caramel to pair up with the dark fruit. Honestly, it’s too much for me

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, brown sugar, light roast, and caramel. Taste is sweet malt with brown sugar, light bitterness, and peat. Lingering cola sweetness. Lightly coating mouthfeel. Decent actually.

Sept 2011 bottle; bit of a gusher. Tons of brown head above a dark caramel body. Good retention.
Smells like barrel & toasted caramel. Tons of carb, tastes and feels a bit like A&W root beer. Weird, but I kinda dig.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 0.75l bottle @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a near clear dark brown one with a not so good looking beige islandy top. The nose is light acidic and sweet. Some red sour berries, licorice and dark malts. Somehow I’m really liking this aroma. Great drinkability. Lovely flavors, light acidic with both dry licorice, red wine barred notes and some chocolate paper. Acidic and lasting finish here. It’s not sour, but woody acidic with a strong sweetness that’s balancing it. 03.05.2013
