big and boozy up front, a bit hot and malt forward. Full bodied, loads of vanilla/oak. Great sipping beer by the firepit. Needs a year or so to mellow out and shine

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sample @ CBC 2013. What’s with CCB only bringing bottles? The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The nose is toffee, apples and plums. Mulled wine spice, christmas cake. The taste is roast malts, hugely sweet apple syrup, caramel. Rich and warming. Overall, interesting, but a bit too sweet for my tastes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
På CBC mai-13: En winter warmer lagret på cognacfat. Prøvde denne rett etter Anchorage sin A Deal With the Devil, og da falt den litt igjennom - ikke samme fylden som djevelen fra Alaska. Må prøves en annen gang i mer nøytral setting.
