3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured up on tap at the CCB brewpub with hazy deep ruby body with amber hues and thin off white head. So I’m told this has nothing to do with SeaBass, ok, if you say so. The aroma offers up muted cherries and some coriander like spicy notes. The taste has lots of coriander, prunes, cherries and dark candy sugar. It just comes across as a typical ‘run of the mill’ Belgian like beer. I don’t really get anything wrong with this but I just don’t get the point of this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark hazy reddish brown on tap with thin tan head and little to no lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast and dark fruits. Taste follows suit, but a chocolate malt and toffee backbone. Good balance and nice for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Funky Buddha. Pours hazy brownish amber with an off-white head. Aromas of bubblegum, yeast, spices, dark fruits, and bready malts. Flavors of plum, raisans, caramel, dark bready malts, bubblegum, and little bit of sweetness in the end. ABV is well hidden. Not to shabby.

Draft at Proof. Deep hazy brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma first hints at estery yeast, plums, with bits of toffee malts. Flavor is chewy toffee, dark fruits, and bitter apple in the end. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Brewing Company - on tap. Dark orange pour, off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is slightly rubbery and band-aid like. Flavor is somewhat gummy, hints of cherry fruitiness, a bit of odd spiciness and some bubble gum. Turns a bit boozy in the finish. Thickish mouthfeel. Misses the mark somewhat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Proof. Murky brown-orange pour with thin kahki head. Aroma is bready and dark fruit. Taste is sugary dark fruit, banana, spice and caramel. Nice palate - medium that dries out and leaves you wanting more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the tap room. This beer pours a hazy dark reddish-amber color with a thin bright white head that recedes slowly to a film. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of ripe fruit, yeast and malt. Medium body, on the over-carbonated side with flavors of dark fruit, malt and yeast. The finish is fruity with a sweet malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color is a deep cloudy red with a if fluffy head. Flavor is sweet lime with a rough caramel flavor. It is a little caustic and dirty, not feeling happy about this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Entering old ratings, from notes, poured a dark amber color from CCB, aromas of yeast, dark fruits, maybe figs, some banana, and a touch of malt. Flavors are a hodgepoge of teh aroams, and blended nicely, for such a big abv beer, it was quite enjoyable. Please brew again, solid beer overall.
